Ready for a non-alcoholic sangria recipe that’s perfect for celebrating any season? Go ahead and enjoy this summer in a glass. This green tea mocktail will help keep you hydrated while adding a little flavor to your day!
Mocktails are So Refreshing!
I don’t know about you, but I love sipping a refreshing mocktail. And this time of year, it's so nice to slow down to a nice pace. What better way to enjoy the season than to pretend it's summer and drink a summery virgin cocktail?
Whenever I entertain, I like to whip up a few signature recipes. I’m not the biggest drinker, so I created this green tea sangria recipe that’s suitable for kids and adults alike! You can easily stir up a batch of this easy sangria recipe for a crowd.
Why This Sangria is Healthy
I love that this simple sangria takes just minutes to prep. You can make sangria the night before and have a refreshingly healthy beverage ready to serve up the next day!
This virgin sangria recipe is made with green tea, which will pump your body full of flavonoids that help keep your heart healthy. You’ll get the biggest benefit from taking in at least 400 milligrams of flavonoids daily, an amount you can get from drinking three to four cups of brewed tea. Isn't that amazing?
FYI: Two servings of this tropical beverage counts as one cup of brewed tea. I love recipes like this sweet sangria that feature tea. You can also try my matcha green muffins.
How to Make Virgin Sangria
In addition to the tea, I mixed in white grape juice and passion fruit juice and then a slew of tropical fruit. If you don't have white grape juice on hand, apple juice would also work.
I used key limes, oranges, kiwi, and pineapple in this summer sangria recipe, but you can certainly play around with your own fruit add-ins.
While I made a green tea sangria, feel free to try different tea options. I had regular green tea on hand, but you could also use iced green tea in this recipe—or you could go the black tea route and use black unsweetened iced tea. You’ll want to brew one iced tea bag in four cups of cold water.
Make Different Varieties of Sangria
Ready to whip up this delicious green tea mocktail? This tasty pineapple sangria without alcohol tastes like summer, so get ready to add this drink to your list of go-to tropical mocktails!
If you'd like the recipe to be a little sweeter, you can add some rosemary simple syrup.
If you want to change things up, try these modifications:
- If you want the drink to be colder, feel free to add some ice cubes.
- If you want a bubbly drink, replace the water for sparkling water.
- If you want this to not be a mocktail recipe, you can add a little peach schnapps or vodka (just a shot glass' worth or so!) to the drink.
