HAPPY MONDAY!!! Being that we are already in May, I thought I would do something a little different and kick off Spring with some fun! I have done some experimenting with food and drinks over the last month and actually discovered an amazing & healthy (somewhat) drink! Sugar-free Sangria !!!!
What?!?!…. That’s Correct!!! It is pretty much amazing! I wanted to drink something besides dry, red wine for this detox and I love Sangria. Why not make one that fits my diet AND doesn’t make me bloated. I know there are so many ways to make Sangria but I also know that it is possible to make a healthier drink that wont kill you on the calories. I have also discovered LaCroix water trying to stay away from Diet Coke. Let me tell you…. this stuff is amazing!!! It helps replace the carbonation craving and rather than reaching for a soda, this will help curve the craving! There are so many flavors and they are all delicious. I decided to add some to my Sangria and I am so glad I did 🙂
- 2 bottles red wine (I used Pinot Noir (dryest))
- ¼ cup La Croix Cranberry Sparkling Water
- ¼ cup club soda
- 3 oranges (thinly sliced)
- 1 lemon (thinly sliced)
- 1 lime (thinly sliced)
- ¼ cup apples
- ¼ cup cherries (pitted)
- ¼ cup raspberries
- Mix all ingredients together in large pitcher.
- Chill in fridge and add ice.
Feel free to change the fruits up to what ever you have available. One of my favorite sangria mixes was mainly berries but there was Brandy and Grand Marnier mixed in. Try it out.
What are some specialty drinks you are loving? Any healthy drinks you think I need to try?
