Default Crazy idea -- fermenting punch

I got a crazy idea and was wondering if anyone had ever tried fermenting Hawaiian Punch? Seems like it would be tasty if fermented. Maybe just better to add alcohol to punch, though.
Anyway, just wondering if anyone had tried it and if so how it turned out? I figure with all the sugar in there, it ought to be fermentable.

I am guessing all of the unnatural things in there (preservatives) might cause fermentation issues.

You can buy Mad Dog at most corner liquor stores around here for a couple bucks

Good point. I was thinking more about the powdered, pre-sugared mix, or the "sugar it yourself" powder. Definitely didn't think about the preservatives in the liquid. May even be some in the powder. Have to check. I may try to brew a 1 gallon batch of this just for giggles.

Yeah, I was just thinking about weird stuff you could (try to) ferment.

In 1970 when all of the ingredients used for punch had real sugar, a college room mate fermented some in a cabinet under the sink at the dorm room. He said it was pretty good. Of course then he would drink Ripple and Boones Farm

I've got an empty apple juice gallon jug. I may mix up a batch of punch (the add your own sugar stuff) and give it a shot just to say I did.
