Rinse the berries and place them over medium heat in a small sauce pan on the stove. Add the water and sugar and bring to a boil. Once the mixture has come to a boil, mash about half of the berries but leave some whole. Cook until sauce thickens then remove from heat to cool. In a tall glass, with the sherbet and Sprite already in it – drizzle sauce over top.
