Well drinking isn’t something I’m big on, I prefer to keep my drinks non-alcoholic. So to get through these hotter months here in Texas I thought it would be fun to share a mocktail recipe that’s perfect for everyone! (You could even make these into popsicles)
The star in this faux sangria is the Simple Truth dark cherry juice. It has a rich flavor that’s reminiscent to red wine. To take it a step further I also included their pineapple seltzer water for a little bubbly! Totally optional though, feel free to omit or double up if you want a even lighter mocktail.
In true sangria tradition I included chopped fruit. Have fun mixing and matching what you like best. For this I decided to combine blood oranges, green apples and fresh limes. Muddled together with coconut sugar for added sweetness. Alternatively you could use a liquid sweetener to taste or omit for a bolder flavor that’s only naturally sweetened by the fruit.
Be sure to stock up on all the goodies needed at your local Kroger Family of Stores. Stay cool this summer and let me know if you give this recipe a try. I would love to hear what you think!

Thank you very much for taking the time to follow along with my content and make my recipes!
