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:
- 2 13oz packets Unsweetened Lemon-Lime Kool-Aid
- Pineapple Juice
- Frozen Lemonade Concentrate, thawed
- Red Sanding Sugar for Glass Trim

How to Make Grinch Punch:
This punch couldn’t be any simpler to make.
STEP 1: First, start by pouring 2 quarts of water in a 1 gallon pitcher. Of course, you can double or even triple this recipe if needed.
STEP 2: Next, add the Kool-aid mix and sugar and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
STEP 3: Now, add the pineapple juice and lemonade and stir well. You’ll notice it turns that nice pretty Grinch Green color!
STEP 4: To top the rim of a glass, dip the top in water then dip into the sanding sugar.
Just before serving, add the Sprite and ice and serve and enjoy!
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.
