Non Alcoholic Sangria

Non Alcoholic Sangria Recipe

Ever since I visited Spain, many moons ago, I fell in love with sangria! It’s not the alcohol I used to love about it but the great assortment of fruit! But as I’ve given up alcohol a few years back I didn’t have the chance to enjoy a real sangria ever since. Until yesterday when I decided to make a kid friendly, non alcoholic sangria!

This version of virgin sangria is pretty similar to “the real thing” but without the alcohol buzz which to be honest, I don’t miss at all, especially in hot summer days. This lovely recipe is so nice to sip on and/or to “snack” on the fruit. As I find citrus the perfect choice for a refreshing drink (in any season, really!), I used a lot of lemons and oranges in my alcohol free sangria.

I also added red grapefruit juice to my non alcoholic sangria, instead of the red wine you would typically find in the original recipe and I added a little rum extract to mimic the brandy. I opted for peaches to give the recipe extra sweetness and counterbalance the sourness in grapefruit and added cinnamon sticks for just a touch of spiciness.

The fruit looks great and when steeped for several hours (I left them in the fridge overnight), they make this non alcoholic sangria recipe taste a thousand times better that the original version! If you prefer you can make this with alcohol, I’ll specify the proportions below.
