Chef notes

A large batch of nonalcoholic sangria is perfect for Dry January entertaining. I’ve found with a lot of tasting that the nonalcoholic sparkling and white wine categories are really amazing right now (see: Thomson & Scott and Wolffer's Spring in a Bottle).

You can add a boost to this recipe by adding a functional spirit base or by using functional drops like Apothékary's Wine Down herbal red wine alternative tincture.

Ingredients

  • 1 bottle (750 milliliters) red verjus or spiritless red wine alternative like Thomson & Scott Noughty Non-Alcoholic Rouge
  • 10 ounces nonalcoholic spirit like Aplos Calme, Seedlip Spice 94 or ISH Caribbean Spiced Spirit
  • 8 ounces pomegranate juice
  • 8 ounces Cheeky Honey Ginger Syrup
  • 6 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 star anise pods
  • 2 oranges, sliced into rings
  • 2 apples, cut into slices
  • 1 lemon, cut into wheels

Preparation

1.

Combine all ingredients in a punch bowl or large format container.

2.

Let infuse for 2 hours. Chill by putting in the fridge or adding a large ice block to a punch bowl.

3.

Serve in punch cups or wine glasses over ice. Garnish with fruits.
