We came up with this Sparkling Holiday Punch recipe using the following ingredients (for one drink):

Lemon and pomegranate


  • Put about a teaspoon of edible glitter in a shallow dish. Wet the rim of your glass and dip into glitter.
  • Put Powerade drink mix in glass.
  • Pour both DASANI Sparkling Water flavors into the glass without touching the glittered edge.
  • Toss in the pomegranate arils.
  • Garnish with orange peel and cranberry on a skewer.
  • Add a pretty straw and enjoy.

For added sparkle, place a small inverted glass dish over small white lights to shine lights up through the drinks, really making them shine. You’re drink table will be a hit! You can also use a variety of styles of glassware. Kids especially love getting to use the fancy glasses.

Adding pomegranate arils (seeds) to a sparkling drink is fun because they continue to “dance” the whole time. They float up and down with the bubbles. And, when you’re finished with your drink, you can eat them. The kids call them ‘nature’s jelly beans’. 🙂
