Non-Alcoholic Sangria Mocktail from JensFavoriteCookies.com - a great fruity drink to share with kids!Spring has finally come to Utah, and not a moment too soon.  It was one of the coldest winters in recent history, and the spring fever has been strong this year.  I think every person on my street was outside in their yards today.

And you know what spring means… it means fruit.  Lots of fruit.

Have you ever watched that Bobby Flay breakfast show?  It makes me want to live with Bobby Flay, let me tell you.  Because the man makes a mean hash, which is the best breakfast food of all time.  But also, he tends to make a lot of Sangria.

I’m not a drinker.  But if I were, I bet I would really be into Sangria.  There’s something about a fruity drink on a summer morning that appeals to me.  Thus, I have created a non-alcoholic version for you.

And me.

This one is super simple.  The toughest part is waiting for all the fruits to steep, and let the juice get all fruity-delicious.  It was the toughest part for the kids, too.

I expected The Fruitarian to be all over this one, but surprisingly, The Lizard (oldest son) was the one with the mad hovering skills today.  He watched me make it, helped me photograph it, gave his input while I edited the photos, asked for seconds, and then left, just when I got to the cleaning up part.

Teenagers.

I chose a cherry-grape juice for my fake-Sangria, but you can choose just about any juice you like.  You can choose almost any fruit you like, too, though I recommend having at least one juicy citrus in there.

That might just be personal preference.

Last tip: I let my slice of clementine float in my glass while I sipped, and it added an extra tangerine-like punch to my beverage, which was really delicious.  Plus, it looked really, really cute.

And let’s face it, that’s what it’s really all about.

  1. This does look delicious. You won’t mind if I slip a little vodka into mine, right? :)

  2. Hi Jen,
    I love your mocktail!! I ws hoping you could
    tell me where you purchased the pitcher…It is
    really nice…
    Sincerely,
    Nancy Carlson

    • Thanks Nancy! The pitcher came from Crate & Barrel, but I’ve also seen a similar (less expensive) version at Walmart.

  3. I love your pictures and recipes, they are mouth watering. Would love for you to share them with us at foodieportal.com. We are new but at foodieportal.com we are not photography snobs, we are just foodies.

  4. Great job with this! Sangria is a wonderful beverage, and made right isn’t overly alcoholic – although obviously it contains some. This looks like a wonderful version for anyone who wants the flavor and doesn’t want the wine (or brandy, which is often put in sangria). Really good stuff – thanks.

  5. Mmmm…Jen, although I’m an alcoholic and love boozy sangria, I certainly wouldn’t turn down a glass (or pitcher) of your version. This would be super refreshing on hot summer days. And I covet your pitcher – I need to buy one and fill it with sangria!

  6. Your food photos are amazing. You can share your mouth watering photos with us at foodienewz.com and your photos published on FoodieNewz without any editorial review.
