Strawberry Margarita Sherbet Float
If you like frozen margaritas, you will love this strawberry margarita sherbet float! Despite the name, it is actually non-alcoholic so it is a great treat for the whole family! On an ice cream float kick this summer, I found some new inspiration a few weeks ago as I looked through my mom’s June issue of Better Homes and Gardens.
I had so many struggles with photographing my frozen drinks this summer. When I first made this blue-raspberry frosted lemonade drink two months ago or so, I nearly pulled my hair out trying to photograph the frozen drink in 95 degree temps using natural sunlight. Several weeks later, as I played around with float combinations, it finally dawned on me to use frosty mugs straight out of the freezer. That not only helped with the photography, but also helped extend the life of the drink so that it was actually worth drinking once the photo shoot was finished.
The Better Homes and Gardens article on floats seconded using frosty mugs. It also directed readers to scoop the ice cream or sherbet in advance and place on frozen cookie sheets. Then, you can keep the trays in the freezer until needed.
I love the magazine’s idea of making a strawberry margarita sherbet float, complete with salted rim.
- 3 scoops of frozen lime sherbet
- 1 1/2 cups or so strawberry soda
- table salt
- Dip the mouth of a frosty mug into a plate or bowl of table salt, to salt the rim of the glass.
- Add the frozen scoops of sherbet to the mug.
- Carefully, pour enough strawberry soda into the glass to allow for a few inches of foam at the top of the glass.
Hope you enjoy this strawberry margarita sherbet float. After all, it’s five o’clock somewhere.
By the way, how do you say it – “sherb-et” or “sherb-ert?”
