Ingredients
  

For the Lemon Basil Sherbet

  • 2 cups 7UP TEN® Lemon Lime Soda
  • ½ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • zest of 2 lemons
  • ¼ cup finely chopped basil leaves
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream

For the Lemon Basil Sherbet Mocktail

  • Lemon Basil Sherbet
  • 7 UP TEN® Lemon Lime Soda
  • garnish: lemon slice basil leaves

For the Lemon Basil Sherbet Mimosa

  • Lemon Basil Sherbet
  • 7 UP TEN® Lemon Lime Soda
  • champagne
  • garnish: lemon slice basil leaves

Instructions
 

  • In a medium saucepan, combine the 7UP TEN® soda, juice, sugar, zest, and basil. Add heat, if necessary, to get the sugar to dissolve (it won't take much). Chill in the refrigerator.
  • In a chilled mixing bowl, whip the cream to medium peaks. Gently stir in the 7up-lemon-basil mixture. Transfer sherbet to a nonreactive storage container and freeze completely.
  • To serve, use a melon baller to put two balls of sherbet in a champagne glass. Slowly pour 7up TEN® with or without champagne, to your taste, over top (bubbles!). Garnish with lemon and fresh basil.
