Non-Alcoholic Kid Friendly Sangria
This past summer we had a party and it was a lot of fun. Food, friends, family and drinks. One of the drinks we served was pitches of red wine sangria. The pitchers of punch full of fresh cut fruit looked beautiful on the tables and were enjoyed by everyone!
Everyone but the kids.
We had to explain to the kids that these were adult drinks and even though they had fruit in them these drinks were just for the grown ups. I went inside to cut them fresh apples and grapes but they wanted everything in the pitchers like the adults.
After the party I assured my kids I would create them a sangria recipe that was kid friendly and they would be able to share with all their friends. They LOVE it and we will be serving it throughout the holiday season this year and especially on New Years Eve. The kids are so excited!
This recipe is super simple with a fruit juice base and then top each serving with your favorite DASANI Sparkling water. I love DASANI sparkling water because it has zero calories, unsweetened, zero artificial colors, and it’s caffeine-free. DASANI is available in 4 flavors, Lime, Berry, Lemon & Black Cherry. DASANI sparkling water is available 12 packs at Walmart.
Let’s Get Started!
In a pitcher add 4 cups of Minute Maid Apple juice.
To that, add 2 cups of Minute Maid Lemonade .
Followed by 2 cups of Minute Maid Light Mango Passion Juice.
Cut about 20 white grapes (or red if you prefer) in quarters, lengthwise.
It is always good to cut grapes when serving them to children.
Remove the core from 1 red apple ( or green if you wish!)
And slice into thin strips and then into match sticks.
Add the grapes and the matchstick apples to your pitcher of fruit juice base. I love the look of the apples in the sangria. It looks like confetti!
Store this juice base in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.
Here is where the fun begins.
Fill a cup half to three quarters full of your juice base.
Have the kids pick out their favorite DASANI sparkling water either Lime, Berry, Lemon or Black Cherry and top off their kid friendly sangria. They are pouring in another layer of flavor, the bubbles that they love, zero calories and no artificial flavors!
They can mix it up and top off their sangria juice base with a few different flavors of DASANI, making there drink more personal and unique!
