Traditionally, sangria is a fruited wine punch. This version replaces the wine with cranberry juice for less alcohol and fewer calories. If hosting a crowd, just double or triple the recipe.
Total Time: 15 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
3 cups light white cranberry juice drink, chilled
1 small orange, sliced and halved
½ of a lemon, sliced and halved
¼ cup Grand Marnier®, triple sec or fresh orange juice
½ of a Granny Smith apple, cored and cut into thin wedges
1 cup diet ginger ale, chilled
- Combine 1 cup cranberry juice drink and orange and lemon slices in large pitcher. Partially crush citrus slices using the back of a wooden spoon. Add remaining 2 cups juice drink, Grand Marnier and apple to pitcher. If desired, cover and refrigerate for up to 6 hours.
- Just before serving, add ginger ale; gently stir. Pour over ice into glasses.
Alternate Preparation: REFRESHING MOCK RED SANGRIA
Prepare white sangria recipe as directed, except substitute light red cranberry juice drink for the white. If desired, cover and refrigerate for up to 1 hour (the fruit will start to absorb the red juice if it sits longer).
