Tim and I are both recovering alcoholics. It was the best decision we both made. Although our decisions were made at different times, we are both committed to maintaining our sobriety no matter what comes our way.

Having said that, sometimes you still want a special drink to celebrate a special occasion……for the holidays or just because.
You all know that I regularly troll Pinterest for recipes. Sometimes, the special drinks look so good. There was a recipe for Apple Cider Sangria and since I had already made Pomegranate Moscato Sangria , I wanted to go a different direction. Continue reading “Alcohol Free Caramel Apple Mimosa”

Pomegranate Moscato Sangria

Alcohol free Pomegranate Moscato Sangria. That right no alcohol……..

Pomegranate Moscato Sangria

As a recovering alcoholic, I miss certain types of drinks in certain situations. I always enjoyed a glass of wine with a meal, a margarita with Mexican food, and Sangria on a warm summer evening.

Stopping my use of alcohol was the best thing I have ever done for myself. I could not have succeed without the help of my wonderful husband. Tim has helped me to achieve and maintain my sobriety for the last 6 1/2 years.

Pomegranate Moscato Sangria

In search of a non-alcoholic version of popular drinks, or mocktails as they are commonly referred. I came across a company that makes alcohol free wines. Sangria was back!

FRE is America’s #1 alcohol-removed wine brand.
Fre Wines are produced by Sutter Home Winery, one of America’s most trusted wine brands. Originally founded in the late 1800’s, Sutter Home Winery was purchased by the Trinchero Family in 1947. Today, Sutter Home is one of the few remaining family-owned and operated wineries in Napa Valley.

Pomegranate Moscato Sangria

Summer time is the perfect time for Sangria. Fruity and refreshing or at least my Pomegranate Moscato Sangria is…….

I really winged it on this recipe. After finding the FRE Moscato I went to ……you guessed it, my favorite place on earth…….the grocery store!!

Pomegranate Moscato Sangria

I spent a long time in the produce section, gazing at fruits……what did I want? Well……I kinda bought some of everything. I didn’t use it all, but I had a large variety to chose from. The cool thing about Sangria is you can make it your own using different fruits and wines…….so go crazy.

In the produce section I came across pomegranates, the little red seeds, also called arils, would make a pretty addition to my sangria. Pomegranates can be intimidating, especially the peeling and seeding. I came across a blog post at Simply Recipes that is perfect. It shows step by step how to cut and seed the pomegranate.

Pomegranate Moscato Sangria

A mixture of oranges, lemons, limes, and fresh pineapple….yummy! I picked up pomegranate juice for the extra flavor and color.

Making sangria is really fairly simple. First, cut your fruit and place it in a decorative pitcher…… must look pretty after all!

Pomegranate Moscato Sangria

Top the fruit with the wine, and I added the pomegranate juice at this point. Let the mixture set in the frig for a couple of hours. Gives the fruit a chance to soak up the flavor of the wine, and for the wine to absorb the flavor of the fruit.

To serve, I found some really nice big wine goblets……bonus, they were plastic. You know summer time, outdoors, glass, cement…….not good. The gal at the store started to get paper to wrap them until she discovered they were plastic…

Pomegranate Moscato Sangria

Ice, the wine fruit mixture, and then the other friend of non-drinkers Sparkling White Grape Juice. Welch’s has a variety of these tasty, bubbly drinks. Perfect for the non-drinker to celebrate and enjoy.
Top the Pomegranate Moscato Sangria with a splash of the sparkling white grape juice and garnish with fruit…….beautiful!

Pomegranate Moscato Sangria

For your next summer get together, or just because it’s summer, make pitcher of
Pomegranate Moscato Sangria and enjoy!
