Lime Sherbet Floats

Lime Sherbet Floats
I love St. Patrick’s Day because..
-I LOVE the color green
-I am 12.5% Irish
-I love potatoes

We’ve been busy picking out some fantastic green recipes and I can’t wait to share them with you! I have been sharing some sneak peeks on Instagram (@beth_thefirstyear), so take a look, here is the link to our profile.

Lime Sherbet Floats
This year I wanted to share green recipes that weren’t all about mint or shamrock shakes. I wanted to include really easy St. Patrick’s Day ideas that can make March 17 fun without added stress on the adults.

Also, a lot of the recipes we are going to share can we used year round and not just sit in the bottom of your closet till next St. Patrick’s Day.

Lime Sherbet Floats
Today we’re sharing, drum roll… EASY Lime Sherbet Floats!

They are so delicious and refreshing. And I love that the recipe I’m sharing with you is for one drink, so you won’t end up with 8 extra floats that go to waste. But the recipe is easy enough to up scale if you’re making them for a crowd.

    I’ve made something very similar, but without the pineapple juice. I love pineapple, so I’ll have to try it that way next time! It is such a yummy and refreshing drink!

    • The First Year Blog — February 24, 2014 at 5:45 pm

      It is so refreshing, I’ll have to pull this one out in the summer! Thanks for coming by Kara!

    The pineapple juice is a fabulous idea! I’m not a huge fan of lime, but this sounds wonderful!!

    Thanks for sharing this at Project Inspire{d}!

    • The First Year Blog — February 24, 2014 at 9:17 pm

      The lime flavor from the lime juice isn’t very powerful, you can taste the lime sherbet more.
