Hope you all are enjoying this new year after spending a good time together with family. I too enjoyed weekend with my family. Holiday time is a great opportunity to enjoy, relax and complete those things which are left in a corner for several days. Next month valentine’s day is coming. I was trying to figure out the recipes for that special occasion. After going through much researching and thought process I compiled a list of some good recipes. Raspberry Sangria Mocktail is of them. I will be blogging more recipes on valentine’s day so stay tuned.
I always excited to try mocktail rather than cocktail because it’s not just restricted to adults. It could equally be enjoyed by kids and elders who don’t prefer cocktail. Basically mocktail is a cocktail without alcohol, it is a blend of beverages like iced tea, juices, fruits like berries . Mocktail originate from the word “Mock” which means mimic or to imitate.
I make this juicy, fruity raspberry sangria frequently in my parties and special occasions. It’s just like icing on the cake.
Recipe is very simple and calls for just 3- 4 ingredients. Let’s check the recipe.
