  3. Scoop pineapple sherbet into a glass then pour soda mixture over sherbet. Serve immediately.

  4. If you don’t have an ice cream maker, you could also use a store-bought pineapple sherbet, but if you do, the homemade sherbet is a must.

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and sugar until the sugar has dissolved. Stir in remaining ingredients.

  2. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and process according to the manufacturer’s directions. Freeze the mixture for about 3 hours until firm.

To Make Pineapple Puree:

  1. Peel and core a pineapple. Dice pineapple and place in a food processor.

  2. Puree pineapple 1-2 minutes until very smooth. Force the puree through a fine sieve into a bowl, then measure out 3 cups for the recipe and chill completely.
