Virgin Sangria Recipe and 25 Summer Mocktails to Try

Have you ever tried a virgin sangria recipe? Marty and I don’t drink or serve alcohol to our guests. To offer our guests something a little special when we entertain, these non-alcoholic drinks can be a great choice.  We can always offer lemonade or my Templeton iced tea but sometimes I want something just a little bit different. Thankfully, there are lots of different summer mocktails we can make to serve at our parties. This virgin sangria recipe is one of my very favorites because it’s loaded with fresh, organic fruit. This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

Summer Mocktails

This is the perfect summer mocktail recipe because I can vary the fresh fruit I use based on what is in season. So, if you don’t have cherries but do have raspberries, you can use those instead. If you don’t have orange juice but do have pineapple juice, feel free to substitute. Because you will be floating the fruit (orange, lime, and lemon) in your mocktail, please choose organic. Don’t be afraid to experiment with this. You can even try this virgin sangria with ginger ale if you want fizz in your drink. I’m going to try this non-alcoholic sangria with cranberry juice for our Thanksgiving day celebration.

To make it easier to serve your mocktails this summer, I really recommend a serving tray and a large glass pitcher. You can mix up a big batch of your favorite mocktail ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator. Then, when your guests arrive, you can put the pitcher and glasses on your tray and head outside.

Have everyone bring a few of their favorite nail polishes and enjoy a few hours being pampered.

Summer Mocktails are very easy to make. It’s just a matter of removing the alcohol from your favorite drink and replacing it with a juice of some sort. This Virgin Sangria mocktail is a yummy combination of pomegranate juice and black tea. Since I am a huge fan of both pomegranate juice and iced tea, it’s one of my favorites.
