I LOVE Sherbet (As you can see, I spelled it wrong in the last post in the title! I didnt realize it was spelled SherBET versus SherBERT maybe thats a Texas way of saying it lol!)
My most favorite drink ever is what they serve at weddings down here in Texas. It is punch made from Sherbet and Ginger ale, and it is SO good! I cant even drink it at home or I want to drink it all the time! But you know, it really isn't too bad if your on a diet!

Wednesday's Feature: SHERBERT!

Spelled Pronunciation [shur-bit] –noun
a frozen fruit-flavored mixture, similar to an ice, but with milk, egg white, or gelatin added.
British. a drink made of sweetened fruit juice diluted with water and ice.
a frozen fruit or vegetable purée, served either between courses to cleanse the palate or as a dessert.
Origin: 1595–1605;

Word History:
Although the word sherbet has been in the English language for several centuries (it was first recorded in 1603), it has not always referred to what one normally thinks of as sherbet. Sherbet came into English from Ottoman Turkish sherbet or Persian sharbat, both going back to Arabic šarba, "drink." The Turkish and Persian words referred to a beverage of sweetened, diluted fruit juice that was popular in the Middle East and imitated in Europe. In Europe sherbet eventually came to refer to a carbonated drink. Because the original Middle Eastern drink contained fruit and was often cooled with snow, sherbet was applied to a frozen dessert (first recorded in 1891). It is distinguished slightly from sorbet, which can also mean "a fruit-flavored ice served between courses of a meal." Sorbet (first recorded in English in 1585) goes back through French (sorbet) and then Italian (sorbetto) to the same Turkish sherbet that gave us sherbet.
