Over the years I’ve shared many Christmas cocktail recipes. The other day someone asked for a few non-alcoholic mocktail recipes. I thought that was a wonderful idea, and I’m happy to deliver. That’s why I decided to create and share this beautiful and delicious Non-Alcoholic Sangria.

Most of you probably know that I love a good sangria recipe. So that’s where I got the inspiration for this holiday mocktail.

Of course, you’re probably wondering how can you make sangria without the alcohol since the base of sangria is wine? Well, I have a few tricks to share that make this mocktail super delicious and doable!

How do you make a non-alcoholic sangria?

There are two key ingredients.

First, you’ll need sparkling grape juice. I opted for red grape juice because I’m serving this mocktail for the holiday and wanted a rich red color. This will cover the grape-aspect of the wine and add a little fizziness.

The second main ingredient is brewed tea. One of the key elements in red wine is the tannin. In short, it’s responsible for the woodsy, sometimes bitter flavor and dryness of red wine. Brewed tea can create a similar effect, which is why we’re adding it to this non-alcoholic sangria.

Pretty interesting, right?

So for this mocktail sangria recipe, I started with the sparkling red grape juice and the brewed tea. I used Bigelow’s Constant Comment. Its notes of orange and sweet spices work great for this particular recipe.

Next, I added cranberry juice for seasonal flavor and a touch of sweetness. Finally, it wouldn’t be sangria without some fruit. I tossed in sliced oranges, fresh cranberries, and cinnamon sticks. Pomegranate seeds or cubed green apples would likewise be beautiful and delicious!

(Since someone will probably ask, the cute pine tree drink stirrers came from Target a few years back. However, CraftyLumberjacks have a great DIY version which you can find here.)

    Dear One,
    Just had to tell you how much I enjoy all you do. Usually you youngsters are so far out and modern that I just don’t feel comfortable trying the food or decorating. At 73, we start getting “set in our ways” don’t you know. But I have so enjoyed following you. Your recipes and designing are so clean and crisp yet somehow warm and inviting. Would love to have you in for a cup of hot chocolate! Anyway, just say’in. The Sangria looks divine and I will be making it for the holidays. I am married to a Cuban gentleman so have had my share of Sangria over the years but too old now to chance a broken hip from drinking the hard stuff….sorry for running on like this.
    Wishing you a Blessed Christmas and thanks again, Sharon (East Tennessee)
