When the kids were younger we started Christmas family movie nights. Depending on the movie I will try and make dinner and dessert that is themed to the movie. One of our families favorite Christmas movies is The Grinch that stole Christmas. I have found many ideas for dinner and dessert to go with this movie, but this punch has always been a huge hit with my kids. Not only do the kids enjoy it but it is super easy to make and very festive.
How to Make Grinch Punch
Whenever I make any kind of punch I get my punch bowl out, the kids have always found it fun to pour themselves a glass using the ladle.
To the bowl, I first add the lime sherbet. I normally will let it set out on the counter for a little bit to thaw out some. Then I just add the whole container in at a time, the sherbet will break up from the juice and 7Up but you can break it up if you prefer. Pouring 4 cups of Hawaiian Punch green berry rush and 4 cups of 7Up over the sherbet will help break the sherbet down a little. The carbonation from the 7Up will make the punch foam, this and the sherbet are a huge hit with my kids.
To prepare the glass I dipped the rim of the glass into lime juice. This will help the decorative sugar stick to the rim of the glass.
With the rim coated in lime juice, I shook the festive red sugar around the rim of the glass. Of course, you don’t have to do these last two steps. I thought it made the punch a little more fun for the kids.
Whether for your next family Christmas movies night or for that Grinch party you may be throwing. This Grinch Punch is sure to please everyone even The Grinch himself.
Hope your kids enjoy this Grinch Punch as much as mine do.
