The Sidekick’s Christmas Tree Punch

Christmas Tree Punch


We love celebrating the SEAson here on Canada’s East Coast and every year part of those celebrations include getting crafty – in the workshop and the kitchen too!

So with this year’s theme of Christmas TreesSEA AND BE SCENE TV host Stephanie Beaumont gets a lesson from The Sidekick on how to make her truly festive Christmas Tree Punch!

As a bonus – the recipe is easily spiked with a rum or vodka for the adult beverage seekers on your holiday guest list. Enjoy responsibly.


♦ 1 – bottle of white cranberry Juice (1.77L size)

♦ 1 – 2 litre  bottle of ginger ale

♦ 1 – 2 litre bottle of lemon line flavoured pop (eg. 7Up, Sprite)

♦ 7 – 10 drops of green food colouring

♦ 1/2 to 1 cup of pomegranate seeds (if you love ’em more is more)

♦ 1 lemon thinly sliced into rounds


  1. In a large punch bowl pour 1L of white cranberry juice
  2. Add 1 litre of ginger ale
  3. Add 1 litre of lemon/lime pop
  4. Stir to combine
  5. Add 7 – 10 drops of food colouring to achieve desired green
  6. Toss in pomegranate seeds and lemon circles

Helpful Hints

The beauty of the punch bowl approach to beverages is the serve yourself/low maintenance appeal.

Of course, you’ll still need to keep it cold all party long so we recommend making a tray of ice cubes using cranberry juice instead of water.  This will keep your punch cool without diluting the flavour.  And by all means, pop a few pomegranate seeds in the tray for extra colour and festive feel.
