2 cups unsweetened pure cranberry juice
2 cups unsweetened pure red grape juice
1 cup fresh unsweetened orange juice
4 cups San Pellegrino or sparkling mineral water
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 large lemon – skinned and flesh chopped
1 fresh lime – skinned and flesh chopped
2 cups frozen cranberries
1 orange skinned and flesh chopped
1 cup fresh mint rustically chopped
Place all of the ingredients except the San Pellegrino and the mint in the blender and pulse a few times until rustically combined.
Transfer to a punch bowl.
Rustically chop the mint in the mini food processor or by hand and then add to the mix.
Chill in the fridge for at least a few hours to allow the flavours to infuse.
Just before serving, add in the San Pellegrino and give it a good stir.
Serve over ice cubes and garnish with fresh mint leaves.
For a zesty Summer drink, you just can’t go past this non alcoholic Sangria, which never fails to refresh and satisfy. There are a ton of wonderful non alcoholic Sangria recipes out there that use a variety of fruits. A lot of recipes use pears and apples. But I really like the tartness of citrus fruits – any excuse to use lemon and limes. I used an equal mix of unsweetened cranberry juice and red grape juice to keep the punch that lovely burnt blood red that resembles the color of Sangria wine. Then I added a little bit of freshly squeezed orange juice to balance out the flavors. Most Sangria recipes add in chopped fruit. But I like to blend everything up to get a lovely rustic velvety texture. Throwing in a whole orange, lemon and lime gives it a zesty edge; and the fruit and juice is so naturally sweet that there is no need for any additional sweetener. This is a great drink to offer up at your next Summer BBQ or picnic. Just give the flavors time to infuse before serving for the best results.
