If your kids are anything like mine, they love to have virgin cocktails. And since I love sangria, I knew that the kids probably would like something similar too. So I created this non alcoholic Sangria for Kids recipe! It’s totally easy and makes them feel like they are getting a special (kind of naughty) treat! My boys are about 2 1/2 years apart in age. At times, they get along famously. And others they act like, well, brothers. But there are two things they can agree on. They LOVE soda (which I try not to give them too much of). Recently they’ve become interested in my world of cocktails.
With all the special tools and specialty ingredients, they are always asking questions about drinks and wanting to use the strainer or jigger. I decided to create a non alcoholic sangria for kids as a special treat. And while there isn’t much soda in this recipe, it’s still enough to make the kids feel like it’s a special occasion.

How to Make Non Alcoholic Sangria for Kids
This recipe is super simple. Which is just the way I like it. I started with a white grape juice as the base and then added some of the kid’s favorite fruits.
I quickly prepped the fruit by cutting it in to slices or rounds. It looks pretty and the more surface area you have, the more flavor will be released. I mean the best part of sangria is the fruitiness and kids sangria is no different. Then I put this juice and fruit in to the refrigerator to chillax. I left it overnight. Basically, you just want the fruit to infuse its flavor in to the juice. I mean, I really shouldn’t even call this a recipe. It’s just putting fruit in juice. But that title sounds funny.
I feel like fruit n’ juice sounds a little better but it’s still not right. You know what sounds way better? Non alcoholic sangria. Because then the kids feel like they are a little bit sophisticated for a minute. But I know that won’t last long. I have a 10-year-old boy and was informed this morning that he can now burp the whole alphabet. Yeah! To serve, I poured the virgin sangria in to a glass and then topped it with a little bit of lemon lime soda. So see, not that much soda. It adds just a little bit of fizz that a lot of kids like. It’s the perfect thing to finish of the kids sangria.

This non alcoholic sangria is tasty and good enough for adults to enjoy too. It’s not as good as sangria sangria, because wine. But kids don’t know that. So don’t tell them, ok?
I love to enjoy a glass of something delicious (usually wine) while I watch TV to unwind from the day. This virgin sangria is the perfect mocktail for them to sip (if kids were to sip and not suck down any liquid in a glass that is put in front of them – or is that just my kid?) while they watch their shows too.
Because my kids are different ages, it’s sometimes hard for them to figure out what to watch together on TV. But Netflix is totally awesome and have put together Sibling Playlists.
