For adults, reinstate wine in place of the cherry juice.

Makes: 10 servings

Prep: 20 mins

  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened black cherry juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh pomegranate seeds (from 1 pomegranate)
  • 1 navel orange, halved and sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 granny smith apple, cored and thinly sliced into wedges
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 3 cups seltzer, chilled
  • 1 cup ginger ale, chilled
  • Ice
  1. In a large pitcher, combine the cherry juice, pomegranate seeds, orange, apple and maple syrup; refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight.
  2. Stir in the seltzer and ginger ale. Serve over ice.
  • Swap in cherry juice for red wine to maintain sangrias rich color and flavor without the alcohol.
  • Get more from your garnish: Pomegranate seeds add antioxidants.
  • Add a refreshing, festive fizz--but zero calories--with seltzer.
