Crafting a tasty, well-balanced punch requires a solid go-to recipe—enter Mississippi Bourbon Punch. Fresh and fruity, this sweet cocktail will appeal to a wide array of palates. Best of all, swapping in ingredients that align to your personal tastes make adjusting the drink simpler than ever.
Based on a combination of fruit juices, grenadine and of course, bourbon, this slightly effervescent sipper is perfect for the holidays, birthday parties and beyond. Serves 12–14.

- 1 12-ounce bottle grenadine
