The next cocktail in the row that caught my eye is this non-alcoholic sangria. In a time span of just 20 minutes, you will get a super refreshing drink for the hot summer days. The traditional Spanish Sangria is made of wine, fruits, and sweeteners. This time we are giving the alcohol a pass, and we are embracing a more healthy alternative. Blend white grape juice and the blueberries and pour the mixture into a jar. Then add the lime and orange juice and mix it well. Next, get a glass container, fill it with ice, and add the liquid mixture and the fruits (chopped). Put it in the fridge for a couple of hours before consuming.
- 4 cups white grape juice (1 l)
- 1/4 cup blueberries (40 g) + 3/4 cup blueberries (120 g)
- 1 cup orange juice (250 ml)
