I discovered this juice blend from Trader Joe’s, which is amazingly good. It’s a combination of 7 different juices (pomegranate, tart cherry, black mulberry, red grape, purple carrot, cranberry, and blueberry juice) but it’s not from concentrate and has no added sugar. It’s rare to find a fruit juice that is just fruit (and one veggie). I was experimenting with real sangria made with wine and tried adding the juice. It wasn’t quite right so I added more juice and less wine. By the end of the experiment, I ended up with just the juice. I decided to scrape the more traditional sangria recipe and just go with the non-alcoholic version. It’s healthier and tastes great. I know I make a lot of cocktails on the blog but you can’t have cocktails every night. This is the type of fun drink I would make during the week when I need something more than plain water but don’t want the sugar in wine or straight up juice.
The juice is so sweet and intensely fruity. It really stands up against the sparkling water without needing any additional sweetener. You can always add a little more juice or a teaspoon or two of honey or sugar if you want more sweetness. If you needed a substitute, I think the closest juice would be a Concord grape juice.
