Recipe Time

Hands On: 15 Minutes
Total: 4 Hours, 30 Minutes


  • 4 cups cubed fresh pineapple
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 regular-size green tea bags (such as Tazo All Natural Zen Green Tea)
  • 1 (20-oz.) bottle lemon-lime soft drink, chilled
  • 1 cup light rum
  • 2 cups pineapple sherbet


  1. Process pineapple, sugar, and lime juice in a blender or food processor 30 seconds or until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. Pour through a fine wire-mesh strainer into a large pitcher, pressing to release juices. Discard solids. Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Remove from heat, and add tea bags. Cover and steep 7 minutes. Discard tea bags. Stir tea into pineapple mixture; cover and chill 4 to 6 hours. Gently stir chilled lemon-lime soft drink and rum into pineapple mixture just before serving. Place pineapple sherbet in a punch bowl or individual glasses. Pour pineapple mixture over sherbet. Serve immediately.
