Here is a list of ingredients that can be used to make a refreshing and delicious sangria mocktail. Each of these ingredients blends together to create a flavorful and refreshing nonalcoholic sangria punch that is perfect for parties and special occasions, like brunch, summer potlucks, and backyard barbecue parties.

Fruit Juice

Fruit juice serves as a flavorful base for the punch, providing sweetness and depth of flavor. Good fruit juices to use include cranberry juice, pomegranate juice, grape juice, and cherry juice. You can use one type of fruit juice or create a blend of juices to make a delicious mocktail sangria base. 

Orange Juice

Orange juice enhances the citrus notes and adds brightness to the punch. Use freshly squeezed orange juice to add the best flavor.

Simple Syrup

Use simple syrup or honey to sweeten the sangria punch and balance the tartness of the fruit juices. 

Citrus Slices

Use fresh orange, lemon, and lime slices to infuse the punch with citrus flavors. Sliced lemon and lime can also be used to garnish the drink. Sliced citrus adds both freshness and visual appeal to the drink. Be sure to remove and discard any seeds before adding sliced citrus fruit to the sangria.

Strawberries and Other Fruits

Fresh sliced strawberries and other types of fruit add sweetness, tartness, and a burst of fruity flavor to sangria punch. Popular fruits to add to sangria include sliced strawberries and sliced apples.

Be sure to wash and core fruits—and remove and discard any seeds, before adding the fruit to the sangria mocktail. Fruit can be muddled before adding it to the nonalcoholic sangria cocktail to help bring out their flavors.

Soda or Sparkling Grape Juice

Both club soda and lemon lime soda can be used to add effervescence and lightness to the sangria punch, making it refreshing and bubbly to drink. Sparkling grape juice can also be used for the same effect.

Ice Cubes

Ice cubes chill the punch and help to maintain it’s cold temperature while serving. To prevent diluting the sangria punch, you can freeze fruit juice in ice trays and use the frozen fruit juice cubes to help chill the punch.

Fresh Mint Leaves (optional)

Using fresh mint leaves to garnish sangria punch adds a hint of herbal aroma and freshness to the punch.

Fresh fruits play an important role in making a delicious nonalcoholic sangria cocktail. Here are some other fresh fruits that make great additions to a nonalcoholic sangria recipe. Be sure to wash, peel, and core the fruit, and remove and discard seeds, before adding the fruit to the cocktail. 

  • Berries. Raspberries, blackberries, or blueberries add delicious summery sweetness and visual appeal with their vibrant colors.
  • Grapes (seedless). Seedless grapes offer bursts of juicy sweetness and a pleasing texture when sliced and added to sangria.
  • Kiwi Slices. Kiwi adds tangy and refreshing flavor to sangria punch,  along with a pop of green color.
  • Peach or Nectarine Slices. Sliced peaches and nectarines are perfect summer fruits to add to sangria. When picked at the peak of ripeness, these fruits add a delicate sweetness that pairs well with other summertime fruits.
  • Pineapple Chunks. Pineapple chunks add tropical sweetness and juicy texture to the sangria punch.
