Lucky Limey Float

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by NorthwestGal

My mom used to make these on St. Patrick's Day. We sometimes blended them (which, when blended, they look like a milkshake). We usually had these as a treat every St. Patrick's Day, instead of the usual root beer float.

Wow! This was so good. Made as written and loved it. Never thought about using sherbet in a float. This is my new fav. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT 8.
