Refreshing Mock White Sangria

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


  1. 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.
  2. Just before serving, add ginger ale; gently stir. Pour over ice into glasses.

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).
