This is the perfect holiday drink to get your family in the mood to CELEBRATE! My kids love it, and it’s a hit at every holiday party. I typically make this several times during the holiday season, and it’s a must on Christmas movie night. I love the little cherry ‘hearts’, but my kids hate them and convinced me to leave them out this year. Settle in to watch your favorite Christmas movie with a delicious glass of this. Pop in a movie, check out Abc Family’s 25 Days of Christmas, or check out some Christmas lights; get festive and get your ‘Grinch’ on!
Christmas ‘Grinch’ Punch
1 carton frozen green punch base
several scoops lime sherbet, to taste
lemon-lime soda or ginger ale
maraschino cherries (optional)
1/3 cup sugar
green food coloring
1. Mix thawed punch mix, sherbet, and soda together. Set aside.
2. In a small bowl add sugar. Add a few drops of green food coloring, stirring until evenly combined.
3. When your sugar is satisfyingly green, dip the rim of a glass into water. You just want to get the rim wet. Dip the rim of the cup immediately into the bowl of sugar. Remove and set sugar-coated cup right side up. Repeat for the number of cups you’re using.
4. Add desired amount of punch to each cup, and if using add 1 maraschino cherry to each glass for the Grinch’s heart that was 3x too small.
