Non-alcoholic White Sangria
Bursting with sparkling flavor, this clean version of sangria is
unique in its use of ice cubes made from apple juice. For parties, this can be
served in a large, transparent punch bowl next to a transparent bowl containing
traditional red sangria. This pairing provides a beautiful contrast, provided
they are not immediately consumed by eager guests, as is often the case.
- Makes 8 glasses
- Difficulty: Very
- Preparation time: 10
- Apple juice, for ice
- 1 1/4 cups (10 fl. oz) water
- 1 small bunch fresh mint
- 1/2 cup (3 1/2 oz) sugar
- 3 cinnamon sticks
- 3 1/4 cups (26 fl. oz) grape juice
- 2 medium peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced
- 2 small pears, cut into chunks
- 2 medium oranges, sliced crosswise
- 2 small lemons, sliced crosswise
- 3 cups (24 fl. oz) sparkling non-alcoholic apple cider
- Mint leaves, to garnish (optional)
To make the apple juice ice cubes, pour the apple juice into two
ice trays and freeze until the sangria is ready to serve.
Combine the water, mint leaves, sugar, and cinnamon in a small
saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat and simmer for
several minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Once the mixture has
cooled to room temperature, remove and discard the mint and cinnamon sticks.
Transfer the remaining mixture to a large serving bowl.
Add the grape juice, peaches, pears, and the orange and lemon
slices to the serving bowl. Mix well, and refrigerate overnight. Immediately
before serving, mix in the sparkling apple cider and the apple juice ice cubes.
Garnish with fresh mint leaves, if desired.
