This fresh and delicious non-alcoholic sangria tastes just like the real thing but won't give you any hangover! Made with fresh seasonal fruits and alcohol-removed red wine, this recipe is a perfect mocktail to make for your next party!
Why This Recipe Works
- This non-alcoholic sangria is so delicious and tastes just like the real thing! Cocktails are fun but so are mocktails! I really wanted to create this sangria to taste as much as a regular alcoholic sangria as possible! It's such a fun party drink, it's refreshing, full of delicious seasonal fruits and is great for summertime, holidays or just a random Saturday. This recipe will be a hit at your next gathering for people who don't drink alcohol and even those who do!
- It's super easy to make and customizable! You'll need to do a little chopping and slicing but that's it! Chop the fresh fruits of your choice, and you'll have a delicious, beautiful and refreshing concoction!
- Alcohol- removed red wine. I personally used a cabernet sauvignon but you can use anything from merlot to red blends. You can find alcohol-removed wine at select grocery stores, Bevmo type stores or online. The selection has grown tremendously over the last few years for the pleasure of those who enjoy a glass of wine but don't drink alcohol.
- Fresh fruits. You get to pick what you like and what's in season! The most common fruits used in traditional sangria are oranges, strawberries, apples, lemons, peaches, grapes and limes. But you do you! Add raspberries, blueberries, plums, kiwi, mango, cherries... you literally can try most fruit you love!
- Orange Juice. You don't need a lot but it's an important ingredient, it really binds the non-alcoholic sangria together.
- Sweetener. Only a couple of teaspoon is enough but you can always use more or less to taste. My preferred choice for this recipe is agave nectar but honey, sugar, monk fruit and more work as well.
- Sparkling water. Plain, lemon, lime or lemon-lime is my choice for this recipe.
- Fresh mint. It adds the last touch to this recipe and I highly recommend adding it to the sangria.
How To Make Non-Alcoholic Sangria
- All you'll need to do is chop and slice the fruits, then pour the wine, juice and sweetener on them and then muddle the fruits in the liquid just a bit.
- For the very best results, let the fruits marinate in the wine and juice for a at least couple of hours in the fridge and up to 24 hours. When ready to serve, add the sparkling water to the virgin sangria, and serve over ice.
Tips & Frequently Asked Questions
- What if wanted to make this recipe with alcohol? You absolutely can! All you'll need to do is add regular red wine and if you wish add a half-cup of Triple-Sec, Grand Marnier or Cointreau. The rest of the recipe is exactly the same.
- You said I can use most fruit, how about banana? Ok, ok maybe banana might not be the best choice for a sangria only because it might get a little funky seating in liquid. But I haven't tried it myself so it you do, please report back and let me know if it worked!
- Can I make the non-alcoholic sangria in advance? Absolutely! The drink can stay in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Just don't add any ice and hold off on adding the sparkling seltzer until right before serving.
