Where Can I Buy Lemon-Lime Kool-Aid?

Great question! And if you’ve had a hard time finding it, you are not alone.

Since the time I posted this recipe, some people are having a hard time finding the Lemon Lime Kool-Aid packets in-store. I believe they may have discontinued these after this recipe was made.

However, I found them on Amazon in a large pack which is totally cool if you plan to make a lot of this. You can order them here (or click the image below).

If that doesn’t work, you can also use the Green Apple Flavor although it will taste a bit different. You can order them here.

Ingredients Needed to Make Grinch Punch:

How to Make Grinch Punch:

This punch couldn’t be any simpler to make.

STEP 2: Next, add the Kool-aid mix and sugar and stir until the sugar is dissolved.

This would be really fun to make for a Christmas party at school too! I bet your kiddos will love it as much as mine have!

Things to Note:

  • You can use a pre-made Kool-Aid mix in the bottle if you prefer and just add the red sanding sugar to the cups prior to pouring the drink.
  • Don’t add the red sanding sugar until you are about ready to drink the punch as getting it wet will cause it to dissolve and melt.
  • You can rub the rim of a glass lightly with corn syrup before dipping in the red sanding sugar if you prefer.
  • This drink is good for a few days in the refrigerator exception of the Sprite, I would add that right before drinking so it doesn’t get flat or lose the carbonation.
