The RYR summer drink of the week is Sangria!

This refreshing non-alcoholic summer drink is inherently sweet thanks to the rich combination of fresh fruits and juices. The addition of sparkling water right before serving helps balance the sweetness.

For an adults-only version of this drink, swap out the unsweetened grape juice with an equal amount of dry red wine.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Chilling time: At least 4 hours
Serves: 4-6

Ingredients:

½ c. blueberries
1 c. strawberries, sliced
1 large orange, sliced*
1 medium ripe peach, sliced
2 c. unsweetened grape juice
1 c. freshly squeezed orange juice
2 cinnamon sticks, optional
2 c. sparkling water or club soda
Ice, to serve

*Reserve one orange slice and cut into 4 or 6 small wedges for garnish

Directions:

  1. Add the fruit to a large pitcher and gently muddle with a large wooden spoon to release the juices.

  2. Add the grape juice, orange juice, and cinnamon sticks. Place the pitcher in the refrigerator to chill for at least 4 hours.

  3. To serve, fill individual serving glasses with ice and add sparkling water until half full. Top off with the chilled sangria and fruit and give a quick stir to combine. Garnish each glass with an orange wedge before serving.
