What Is Sangria?

No, Non Alcoholic Sangria is non alcoholic. It is still made with a whole lot of fresh fruit, soaked in juice to swap out the wine.

This Non Alcoholic Sangria is a tasty assortment of fruit that gets ladled into each glass. It’s a refreshing sip, and fruit snack, on a warm day! There are thousands of recipes for sangria, each using different combinations of wine and fruit, so it’s a great option for whatever you have on hand to make the sangria with.

When these fruits are steeped for several hours, the fruits both flavor the drink and soak up the juices, making them flavorful. They look pretty in the glass, but are fun to eat and garnish with!

Non Alcoholic Sangria Serving Tips
- If you’re going to make a non alcoholic sangria, it SHOULD be in a glass pitcher so that everyone can see the pretty colors!
- Chill the sangria in the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving (preferably 2-3 hours if possible) to allow the fruit to steep into the juices.
- You can easily make the recipe the day before and let it chill in the fridge overnight. Just wait to add the fruit until a couple hours before, and the lemon lime soda until serving.
- This recipe can be doubled or tripled easily for a crowd!
- Easy to customize: instead of the lemon lime soda, use ginger ale, club soda, sparkling water, tonic water.
- The juices are easily customizable too: white grape juice is a great option for a lighter color!
- Cranberries and spices (cinnamon, star anise, cloves) are a great option for a holiday non alcoholic sangria.
- Garnish: the fruit in the sangria is a great option for a garnish – use a cocktail pick and lay it on top of the glass.
- Sweetener: we didn’t use any sweetener in this, as the juice was sweet enough, but if you pick tangier juices and need some sweetener, simple syrup and honey work really well!
- Don’t add ice cubes: this will water down the drink. Use cold ingredients and make sure to store in the fridge until serving.
