Low Sugar, Low Calorie Sangria

Low Sugar, Low Calorie Sangria

Ingredients

1 bottle of a red blend wine or a Rose
3 sliced oranges
1 sliced apple
2 handfuls of seedless grapes (dark seem to have a better flavor when added)
1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
12 ounces sierra mist free (or try Oogave Soda, which is sweetened with Agave)

Directions:

slice the oranges and apple
add sliced oranges, apple, berries and grapes to a pitcher
pour the wine over fruit
add sierra mist or Oogave Soda

For best results, soak wine and fruit together for a few hours before adding Soda.

Please note–I realize this is not necessarily a ‘healthy’ drink but it IS a healthier option. The Oogave Soda is a better alternative than the soda, if you can find it. This is not something we make or drink often, but we had a celebration (a return from Afghanistan) and I wanted to make a drink we could all enjoy, without the calories.

    This looks so refreshing! In summer you could use frozen grapes and raspberries – what a treat! Perfect for a celebration.

    Thanks for the recipe.
