This non-alcoholic Stars And Stripes Mocktail Sangria will be a refreshing hit at your next celebration.
There is a whole lot of celebrating going on at my house these days. I feel like I have been on a merry-go-round of milestone after milestone since mid-June. With the end of year school activities and two graduations, I guess you can say we have been a little busy. Now that the school frenzy is over, it’s time to fit in a little 4th of July Fun, Gabrielle’s 18th Birthday celebration AND one big graduation party for both kids.
This Stars and Stripes Mocktail Sangria is going to be a “star” at my summer celebrations over the next week. It’s the perfect non-alcoholic drink to serve for a July 4th celebration. All that beautiful red and blue fruit is so patriotic. I also plan on making a huge batch for the kids’ graduation party next week. Simple ingredients combined to make a refreshing drink that anyone can enjoy.
I am a big sangria lover, but I always like to have a non-alcoholic drink to serve at any party or gathering too. This mocktail has the same ingredients of a sangria minus the wine and alcohol. This mock sangria uses white grape juice instead. For parties, I mix this Stars And Stripes Mocktail Sangria in a large beverage dispenser so everyone can enjoy. I usually double the recipe too for larger parties.
No sangria is complete without plenty of fresh fruit. I am so excited that blueberry season has begun on our farm. I am literally in blueberry heaven, with 20 acres of blueberry bliss. Did I ever mention how much I love living in the Garden State? It’s pretty cool living on a 700-acre farm and growing all these delicious Jersey Fresh fruits and veggies. Even though our strawberry season is over, I managed to find a few lasting strawberries in our fields to add to this recipes as well. Blueberries and strawberries are like best friends. They go so well together. What are your plans for the July 4th holiday? Do you have a favorite party drink that you like to serve?
