8. Red Apple Sangria

Red Apple Sangria

Can't forget the sangria! As you can see, most recipes for mocktails take on classic favorites, but this one actually makes the original better – at least, if you're not a huge fan of alcohol. The apple juice makes this drink so fresh and delicious, your taste buds will go into throes of ecstasy! There's also plenty of citrus, and grape juice for that all important flavor.


2 quarts fresh apple juice (from 16 red apples, cored but not peeled) plus 1 apple, thinly sliced

1 cup fresh lemon juice (from 6 lemons) plus 1 lemon, thinly sliced

1 quart fresh orange juice (from 10 oranges) plus 1 orange, thinly sliced

1 bottle (24 1/2 ounces) sparkling white-grape juice chilled


In a pitcher, combine the apple and lemon juices immediately after juicing to keep the apple juice pink. Stir in orange juice; cover, and chill. Just before serving, add grape juice and sliced fruit.


These mocktail recipes combine lots of fun, fruity flavors, and they definitely taste delicious. On those occasions when you can't serve alcohol, don't want to, or want to provide an alternative for the people who don't drink, mocktails make an excellent choice. You can also drink them during really hot days when the inclusion of alcohol would just make you feel hot and fuzzy. What's your favorite recipe for a mocktail?
