Non-Alcoholic Sangria [Using REAL wine!]


3 minute read

A non-alcoholic sangria is the perfect mocktail for get-togethers, baby showers, or any sober party where a delicious Spanish beverage is appreciated. The traditional summer drink is easy to customize, too, including when you enjoy it.

Hint: It doesn't have to be summer for you to make heart-eyes 😍 over this refreshing drink.

Ingredients for the Perfect Non-Alcoholic Sangria

You can probably find sangria on store shelves, but it’s easy to put together your own virgin sangria recipe.

What is non-alcoholic sangria made of? Non-alcoholic sangria is typically made with fresh fruit, sparkling water, and juice or an alcohol-removed wine. 

The only difference with the alcoholic version is the alcohol. (Mexican sangria usually has a higher ABV.) White grape juice is typical in many drink recipes for sangria, but we like to elevate things. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 bottle Surely Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 1-2 cups fresh fruit (blueberries, orange slices, and red grapes are all great)
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 can orange Zevia*

*We like Zevia because it doesn’t add calories. If lemon-lime soda is your jam, go for it. If you don’t want any sweetness, club soda is an easy get when ordering at the bar.

Chilling time: 4-6 hours

How to Change It Up

We know our alcohol-free sangria is pretty classy, but there are ways to change up this mocktail recipe depending on the fruit juices you have or desired flavor profile.

  • Need more citrus? Add some orange juice. A splash of lemon juice or lime juice will do the trick, too.
  • Planning winter holiday cocktails? Try cranberry juice and fresh cranberries in your mix. That makes for a great Valentine’s Day (or Galentine’s Day) option, too.
  • Feeling fall flavors? Sangrias featuring apple cider or apple juice are delicious. Garnish with cinnamon sticks for a true autumn delight.

Virgin Sangria = All the yum, none of the regret.

All of that fresh fruit you’re piling into your glass is already a healthy start. Keeping the alcohol out of your glass is even better. 

The best part is, you’re still drinking real wine. If you’re not a fan of red wine, we think our non-alcoholic rosé would work just as well.
