This family friendly Holiday Sangria recipe is a colorful mocktail of fresh fall/winter fruits, juices and sparkling cider or non-alcoholic wine.
Since this isn't made with a nice dry wine like a traditional Sangria, it could be called a fruit punch. But Sangria just sounds more festive. Obviously, if you want an adult only version just switch the fruit juice for a bottle of red wine (Pinot Noir, Merlot, etc. ).
It is perfect for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's or other holiday party when persimmons and cranberries are ripe. For the tea, I used Twinings Holiday Berry , but Bigelow Constant Comment, Celestial Sasonings' Sugar Plum Spice or anyother orange or berry tea would also be good.
