Every Who down in Who-ville liked Christmas a lot... but the Grinch,  who lived just north of Who-ville, did not! Instead, the Grinch liked this punch that tastes like lemon and lime, he liked it so much he made it all the time. The green and red colors were such a display, maybe that's why his heart grew three sizes that day!

    Add 2 quarts of water to a large pitcher and add unsweetened lemon-lime Kool-Aid. Optionally, you can add 1 cup of sugar, but it's as sweet as Cindy Lou Who without it! Stir until everything is dissolved.

    If you like your punch as cold as the Grinch's heart, add ice cubes to your glass and pour your punch! If it's cold enough, you can skip the ice and get right to the punch!
