Grinch Non-Alcoholic Punch

Ingredients (Serves 4)

1/2 Cup Lemon/Lime Cordial
1/2 Cup Sugar
Pineapple Juice – Un-sweetened
1 x 1.5lt Sprite
Ice Cubes
Castor Sugar
1 x red food dye
1 x 2lt Jug

Method

First, add 1/4 cup of Castor Sugar and add a few drops of Red Food colouring into a small mixing bowl. Mix the sugar and food colouring together until the sugar turns red.

Pour the coloured sugar onto a saucer and spread it our evenly, so the pile of sugar is just a little larger then the glasses you will serve the punch in.

Then pour 1lt of clean drinking water in a 2lt jug. Of course, you can double or even triple this recipe if needed. It is all down to taste.

Next, add the Cordial and sugar to the water and stir until the sugar is dissolved.

Now, add the pineapple juice and lemonade and stir well. You’ll notice it turns that nice pretty Grinch Green color!

To top the rim of a glass, dip the top rim of the glass in water then dip into the coloured castor sugar.

Just before serving, add the Sprite and ice and serve and enjoy!

Variations

1. Add Orange, Red, Fruit Punch Cordial instead of Lemon/Lime – Green Cordial

2. Add measured portions of vodka or gin or bacardi or white rum into each glass before adding the punch.
