A good host remembers to stock up on the essentials – beer, wine, and liquor, but a great host remembers to provide a non-alcoholic option, too!
Do you ever have times when you try to do something, but anything and everything happened to prevent you from doing something?! That almost seems like the story of my life lately! I have been wanting to share this with y’all for about a year now. It seems like every time I made this, something else came up, preventing me from getting pictures so I could put it on the blog! So please, forgive me if I seem a little excited! 😊
As someone who enjoys having friends and family over for entertaining, I try to be respectful of everyone’s tastes and preferences. I get it, not everyone drinks – but shouldn’t a non-drinker be able to have fun drinks too?! Yeah, we usually have a cooler chest full of sodas and bottled water. There’s always coffee or tea available, but it’s just not the same as all of the fun alcoholic drinks!
To make sure all of my guests can get in on the fun drinks, I like to serve pitchers of this Non-Alcoholic Sangria! Even the kids love it!! It’s so easy to put together and it can chill in the fridge until it’s time to serve! Just before serving you add the sparkling mineral water or lemon-lime soda for a drink everyone can and will enjoy!
This Non-Alcoholic Sangria makes a great addition to Valentine’s meals with your favorite person, or set it out on the Christmas buffet! We also enjoy it in the summer as a cool and refreshing drink on a hot day – it really is perfect for any occasion … or no occasion at all! 😉
I will note, that you have the option of using either sparkling mineral water or lemon-lime soda. The difference really comes down to personal preference – we enjoy it both ways! The lemon-lime soda will make this a sweeter drink, whereas, the sparkling mineral water will be less sweet. Use whichever your family prefers!
