On Libations: "I don’t drink alcoholic beverages, so my favorite libation would have to be a sorbet punch. It’s sprite and lemonade with an ice mold

and a generous pile of raspberry sorbet. It’s fizz, delicious, and good for parties. I will also go for a strawberry lemonade if the strawberries are real."
