What To Do With Leftover Punch

As a hostess, one of my worst nightmares is not making enough food for everyone. Obviously, this often leads me to make too much of everything. And I’m fine with this most of the time because I love leftovers.

But not everything tastes great as leftovers. Like punch. It’s just not great the next day. On Memorial Day I made too much Shandy Punch and ended up freezing the leftovers while I decided what to do with it.

The original plan was shaved ice but I quickly realized without an ice machine (and a solid block of punch) that was not happening.

Strawberry Orange Shandy Sherbet

I had some really delicious strawberries and oranges from the farmers market though and decided to make a sherbet.

It’s really as simple as making a smoothie. You blend an orange and 2 cups strawberries in a blender until smooth, pour it into a bowl, stir in a can of sweetened condensed milk, and then stir in the punch (which I had unthawed the night before).

Unfortunately, you do need an ice cream maker, which churns the mixture for about 25 minutes. After letting it freeze for 5 hours I like to serve it with some roasted fruit. I used blackberries in the photos but I made it with cherries too. Just use whatever is looking the tastiest at the farmers market.

Leave the sherbet out for 10 minutes before serving. I like to layer the compote and sherbet in glasses. A sprig of mint makes it look fancy but it also adds a nice flavor.

You have no idea how much I wanted to call this a sorbet rather than a sherbet. I hate the word sherbet and simply calling this a Shandy Sherbet made it sound like a character from Bob’s Burgers.

Now excuse me while I go sip on smoothies and juices today. At the Davis farmers market last night I ate too much (chicken tikka masala naanwich) and my stomach got distended and was hurting in a way that was a little concerning. I’m giving my j-pouch a break today. Stay cool!

    Apparently I don’t know the difference between sorbet and sherbet.. enlighten me lol. And once I get myself a place for an ice cream machine.. this should happen!!!

    1. A sorbet has no dairy in it at all while a sherbet has a little bit to make it more creamy and richer. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you on finding a place for an ice cream maker!

  2. i’m not a huge fan of beer and think they all taste the same. but this? with tons of frosty, summery fruit? yes, please. also, lovelovelove the davis farmers market. the last time i went, i made the mistake of getting a breakfast burrito from ali baba beforehand, and was too full to nibble on anything else besides samples.

    1. Lol, yes this would trick any beer hater. It’s super great and I love how they have a Wednesday market too. I often need fresh veggies and fruit mid-week so it’s awesome.

  3. The gradient of color through the glasses is gorgeous!!! Such a beautiful drink Meg!

    1. Thanks, Linsay! The compote really takes the presentation to the next level.
