Mississippi Bourbon Punch

    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    I should have known better. This was sickly sweet. I'm not even sure how it made it into Southern Living, it's that bad. I served it at a party and everyone took a glass because I normally make great punches, and we all quickly agreed it was not good. I threw out 85% or more of it at the end of the night. What a waste of $34 of alcohol! The sodas and acidic orange juice do nothing to cut through the saccharine grenadine and muscadine wine. By the way, the drink pictured is NOT this punch. This drink's grenadine + cranberry juice = something the color of your child's Kool Aid. Good alcoholic beverages are never Kool Aid red in my experience. Had the picture been right, I probably would have skipped over this recipe. Oh well, live and learn.
