What is Winter Sangria?
A Sangria is traditionally served in Spain and is made up of a sweetener, chopped fruit, and wine. But today we are skipping the wine and keeping it kid friendly. I used my favorite winter fruits along with some cranberry juice, pineapple juice, and some ginger ale. The results are heaven. Sangria is a dark slightly purplish red. It is the colour of Sangría wine. It is named after this wine.

How Do You Make Mock Winter Sangria?
There are two parts to making this mock sangria – the fruits and the liquids.
I’ll start with the fruits. You will want to dic your apples and pears so they are roughly the same size as the berries, and you will need to slice your orange. Once your fruit is prepped:
- To a pitcher add diced apples.
- Top with orange slices.
- Add diced apples.
- Layer raspberries.
- Add cranberries.
- Top with blueberries.
The next step is adding in your liquids:
- Pour in pineapple juice.
- Add cranberries juice.
- Finish with ginger ale.
What Should I Serve My Mock Sangria In?
Traditionally sangria is served in a punch bowl, but can also be served from a pitcher like I’ve done here. If you are serving a crowd, you can also serve mock winter sangria from a drink dispenser.
