This was posted in 6/2010's Better Homes and Gardens magazine. I'm in perpetual search for different things to make with my grandkids. The very name tickled them to death. A great summertime drink. Note: To make a version using alcohol just add 1/2 cup white rum. In the South a june bug is what we call an adorable pesky child...so apropos.

I made this (with pineapple rum) for some friends at a dinner party and now they ask for it every time they come over! Very yummy!

Loved it!!! So refreshing on a very hot day!! I used diet ginger ale and sugar-free sherbet and didn't feel it too sweet!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Potluck Tag Game.

This drink was very tasty and easy to make. It tasted very sweet without the sticky aftertaste. I will make this recipe again, but will try using a little less orange sherbet. (I think I may have put more in than the recipe called to add.) It was very good, but tasted a little too much like normal wedding punch made with the sherbet and ginger ale or a push-up popsicle.
