I changed this up a bit and used a berry sherbet - very pretty and delicious! Really sneaks up on you with all that liquor in it though!

Used orange sherbet for a Halloween party! Floated plastic spiders in the punch bowl and garnished the glasses with gummy worms. HUGE HIT!

Love this punch!! Super easy way to make a large batch of margaritas that doesn't involve a blender.

Served this for a large crowd watching the fireworks at the fourth of july. The lime sherbert is the key!

It's not easy being green. This is REALLY green! I didn't expect it to be quite as green. It tasted fantastic but the color was a bit offputting to me anyway.

What is the "sour mix" called for in the margarita punch recipe?
Can it be purchased commercially?
CDKitchen Note: Yes, look for it at liquor stores or supermarkets with the other drink mixers.

I do not understand recipe. It calls for 4 qt. sweet and sour mix. But the people who wrote reviews only doubled the sweet and sour mix. did they only fix a half batch or cut down on the sweet and sour mix?
CDKitchen Note: The reviewer made her own sweet and sour mix. I'd just go by what the recipe states and you should be fine.

Made this for my Bunco group. 12 women went through this FAST! Super yummy and easy to make. Like the idea of doing my own sweet and sour mix! I am making it again for my Caravan group tomorrow.

The Margarita Punch recipe is GREAT. I made a DOUBLE recipe for a surprise party and my punch bowl was drained. I opted to not use the lime sherbet----my guests could not believe how much it tasted like a margarita. I also made my own sweet and sour mix. I used:
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 cup lemon juice
1 cup lime juice
Obviously, I had to double up on the sweet and sour recipe but it is less expensive and better than the store bought mix. I rank this recipe wonderful!
