Simple delicious non-alcoholic red wine sangria

How to make non-alcoholic red wine sangria that isn’t just a fruit juice.

Sangria is the most famous Spanish drink. Traditionally, it has red wine and a strong spirit, such as brandy or whiskey. That is a challenge if you are not on the booze.

Most virgin sangrias are just fancy, mixed, fruit juice that would be at home in front of a kid.

What if you want more? What if you want the same boozy taste of the traditional sangria, the cocktail experience, the party feeling? 

We have worked on a no-fuss, 6-ingredients, non-alcoholic red wine sangria recipe with alcohol-free wines and spirits that will satisfy you and all your alcohol-drinking friends.
