I love the look of the foam on top but I know that settles so I’m planning on getting some whip cream to spray on top.
That’s a great idea, Kim! I also love the foamy look on the top! I think whipped cream would work great. If you are making it for a party, and want to keep it foamy, you could keep adding more sherbet, soda and juice to it, to keep the foaming going also.
