Virgin Sangria


Introduction

A refreshing and fruity drink, Virgin Sangria is a great choice for a summer party or BBQ. Non-alcoholic and full of flavour, this drink can be enjoyed by all.

Ingredients

– 1 litre of orange juice
– 1 litre of lemonade
– 1/2 a litre of cranberry juice
– 2 oranges, sliced
– 2 lemons, sliced
– 1 punnet of strawberries, hulled and sliced
– 1/2 a cup of sugar
– 1/4 a cup of mint leaves

Method

1. In a large jug or punch bowl, mix together the orange juice, lemonade, cranberry juice and sugar.
2. Add the oranges, lemons and strawberries.
3. Stir in the mint leaves.
4. Serve over ice.

Potential changes & improvements

– If you want a bit more of a kick, add a splash of vodka or rum to your glass.
– For a less sweet drink, cut down on the sugar or add more cranberry juice.
– Use any type of citrus fruit you like – limes, grapefruit, blood oranges would all work well.

What other food it works well with

As Virgin Sangria is quite a sweet drink, it goes well with food that is not too heavy or rich. Try serving it with:
– BBQ chicken or pork
– Salads
– Lightly flavoured pasta dishes

Common Mistakes

– Not enough fruit – the key to a good Virgin Sangria is plenty of fresh fruit to give it flavour and sweetness.
– Not letting the Sangria sit for long enough – the flavours need time to develop, so make sure you make it a few hours before you plan on serving it.
