If we have to have a favorite holiday villain, it is the Grinch because we all know what happens to him in the end. Grinch movie night is one of our family favorites.

This festive green punch recipe is super easy to whip up for holiday parties. You will want to hang the printed recipe on the side of your refrigerator throughout the holiday season. This fun drink is a bright green color and we decorate the rim of a glass with a thin layer of red sugar for a fun twist and a festive finishing touch.

Start a new holiday tradition in your family by making grinch cookies and this green grinch drink while you watch the movie every year.

How To Make Grinch Punch

Step 1 Adding Sanding Sugar to the glass rim

Prepare the glasses by inverting them and dipping the rim into the water. Allow excess water to drip off.

Pour your sanding sugar into a bowl with a wide enough rim for the glass to fit into.

Then dip the rim of the glass into the sanding sugar. Place the glasses upright and allow the sanding sugar to dry as the punch is prepared.

Step 2

Scoop the sherbet into the bottom of an extra-large punch bowl. A spring-loaded ice cream scooper, like this one, works well to make nice rounded balls of sherbet for your frothy green beverage.

Step 3

Slowly pour half of the Hawaiian Punch over the sherbet followed by half of the pineapple juice and finally half of the soda. Repeat those steps again to use the rest of the beverages. Stir gently to combine. The mixture will be foamy on top.

Step 4

Carefully spoon the festive Christmas punch into your prepared glasses. Serve and enjoy!
