Sangria Mocktail Ingredients

For this recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 1 lb strawberries
  • 1 lime
  • 1 pomegranate
  • 6 oz raspberries
  • 750 ml bottle of non-alcoholic rosé or sparkling grape juice
  • 2 cups peach cranberry juice (you can also use a blend of peach nectar and cranberry juice)

A note: sparkling grape juice and many non-alcoholic wines can trend on the sweeter side. Opt for a no-sugar-added juice in this recipe so you don’t get hit with sweetness overload!

How to Make a Virgin Sangria Mocktail with Fresh Berries

Step 1: Prepare the strawberries by cutting the stems in a V shape to create a heart shape. Place the heart-shaped strawberries in a large pitcher.

Virgin Sangria Mocktail Variations and Substitutions

The beauty of this and other sangrias is how customizable it is to your preferences and whims. This particular recipe is great for an occasion like Valentine’s Day, but you can change up the fruits which will also change up the color for any occasion, honestly!

Here are a few ideas:

Fruit Variations:

  • Different Berries: Use blueberries, blackberries, or cherries for a different taste and color.
  • Citrus Twist: Add orange slices or grapefruit for a citrusy tang.
  • Tropical Flair: Incorporate diced mango, pineapple, or kiwi for a more tropical flavor profile.

Juice Substitutions:

  • Apple or White Grape Juice: For a lighter flavor, replace peach cranberry juice with apple or white grape juice.
  • Pomegranate Juice: To enhance the pomegranate flavor, use pomegranate juice instead of peach cranberry juice.
  • Mixed Berry Juice: For a berry-rich sangria, consider a mixed berry juice.

Non-Alcoholic Wine Alternatives:

  • Sparkling Grape Juice: If you prefer a fizzy sangria, use sparkling white or red grape juice.
  • Non-Alcoholic White or Red Wine: There are various non-alcoholic wines available that can substitute for rosé. Choose according to your flavor preference.
  • Sparkling Water or Club Soda: For a less sweet version, mix in some sparkling water or club soda.

Sweetness Adjustments:

  • Honey or Agave Syrup: If you prefer a sweeter sangria, add a bit of honey or agave syrup.
  • Lemonade or Limeade: For a tangy, sweet twist, replace some of the juice with lemonade or limeade.

Herbs and Spices:

  • Mint or Basil: Add fresh mint or basil leaves for a refreshing herbal note.
  • Cinnamon or Star Anise: For a warmer, spicier undertone, include a stick of cinnamon or a few star anise pods.

Serving Variations:

  • Frozen Fruit: Use frozen berries or fruit instead of ice cubes to keep the sangria cold without diluting it.
  • Individual Jars: Serve in individual mason jars for a cute and personal touch.
