No Alcohol Summer Sangria
Traditionally, Sangria is a Spanish wine with different fruits. This is an alcohol- free version, pretty and thirst quenching.
1 Large bottle cranberry cocktail, well chilled
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
Juice of 1 lemon, and 1 lime
Thinly sliced each, whole orange, lemon and lime
fresh strawberries, washed and halved
1 small apple or fresh peach thinly sliced (or both)
2 Tablespoon sugar
1- 26 ounce bottle of Pellegrino or club soda, well chilled
Strawberries, citrus fruit slices, or apple/peach slices for garnish
In a large pitcher, combine cranberry cocktail, orange juice, lemon and lime juice, sliced citrus fruits, strawberries, peaches and apple with the sugar. Stir and refrigerate 2-3 hours for flavors to meld.
To serve: fill glass with ice, pour in juice cocktail, and add the chilled soda. Garnish each glass with fresh fruit.
