Non - Alcoholic Cranberry Sangria

After making Apple Sangria mimicking the white wine sangria, it was time to make a faux red wine one. This one is just as delicious and is cranberry paired with orange. The sangria is also a lot less sweet as the juices used have lower sugar content. It paired perfectly with a Lebanese lunch I made. 


3 cups (~750 ml) cranberry juice
1 cup orange juice 
1 medium apple, cored and sliced thin
1 sweet lime {mosambi in Hindi} (or orange), sliced thin; seeds removed (with rind) 
1 stick cinnamon
Juice of 1 lemon (~2 tablespoons)
1/2 liter lemon- lime soda (I used Sprite)

In a big water jug, add the lemon juice. Next add the apple slices to it and make sure they are coated in lemon so they don't turn brown. Next add the sliced sweet lime and the cinnamon stick. Add chilled cranberry and orange juice. Mix with a spoon and let this sit for at least an hour till upto 12 hours in a refrigerator. It tastes much better when it's allowed to sit for 12 hours, so plan ahead. 

When serving add ice and soda. Serve chilled!
