Everytime my family has a get together, we make sure we first start the party off with a glass of fresh sangria.  While our traditional version is typically made with a bottle of red or white wine, this refreshing beverage is non-alcoholic & can be enjoyed by the entire family.

The hardest part about making this recipe is letting it sit in the fridge for the alloted time.  While this beverage is best after sitting in the fridge overnight, I would suggest allowing it to sit and marinate for at least 3 hours. Feel free to improvise with whatever fruit or juices you may have on hand. For example, you could add some cranberry juice, pomegranate juice, sliced peaches, sliced pineapples, etc. to make it your own.
