They would feast on Who-pudding, and rare Who-roast-beast. And they’d FEAST! FEAST! FEAST! I have never been to Who-ville, have you? Well of course you haven’t silly, but I would like to think that Grinch Who-Punch would be served at the Whos holiday feast! Boy am I stretching on this one, lol.

Maybe it’s the evilness in my Facebook feed that is making the Grinch story make so much sense this holiday season. Maybe fun rhymes make it easier to deal with everything that is going on right now across the country. Maybe we need some Who magic, and of course some Grinch Who-Punch!!

Some of you may remember the Polyjuice Potion cocktail that I made a few years ago for a Harry Potter Halloween party. It has been insanely popular, and people have commented about it also being perfect for Christmas parties….so I decided to go ahead and create a Grinch party-punch for the holidays.

This Grinch Who-Punch is so easy to prepare and you get to decide if you want it to be naughty or nice | cookingwithcurls.com

This is the perfect beverage to serve because it can be put together at the last minute.

How to make Grinch Punch:

Pour the vodka into a large punch bowl and add the green food coloring (if using). Pour in the lemon-lime soda.

lime sherbet, vodka, and lemon-lime soda in a punch bowl.

Using an ice cream scoop, scoop sherbet balls and add them to the punch bowl.

Serve using a large ladle and pour into party glasses and top with a cute Jumbo Red Heart Sprinkle .

Doesn’t that make you heart grow three sizes? Oh come on, that made you laugh didn’t it? 😉

Recipe Notes & Tips:

  • Different lime sherbets are different shades of green!! As you will see below, the Polyjuice Potion is significantly darker than the Kroger Deluxe Lime Sherbet that I used for this recipe.
  • If you haven’t guessed already, naughty or nice refers to the addition of vodka.
  • You can break up the sherbet with a fork, or scoop it into the bowl with an ice cream scoop so it does not remain in one solid chunk. 😉
  • Remember to always drink responsibly!!

Here is the Polyjuicy Potion for comparison of lime sherbet shades of green.

I lived in Iowa at the time, so that would have probably been Hyvee’s brand…but I’m not positive. I only mention it because I was so shocked when I opened the carton and saw how light mine was…you have been warned!!

  1. I had to see what you used for the green popcorn. I wouldn’t have thought of candy melts, but I bet it’s good.. My mom made colored popcorn balls using flavored gelatin. She made red and green for Christmas — orange for Halloween.

  2. I love this punch inspired by one of my favorite Christmas movies! Pinning for later, thanks for sharing! Visiting from Pint Sized Baker’s Two Cup Tuesday link party. Have a fabulous Thanksgiving!

  3. Quite an assortment of beverages, delicious to behold, even more to the taste, it must be. Your blog is rich with helpful information for families. Please keep it up, Lisa!
