    Tips

    When choosing store-bought juice, look for 100 percent pure fruit juices with no added sugar, colouring, or flavouring. Or, if you have a juicer, you can squeeze your own to avoid any unwanted additives.

    Any combination of sweet and tart juices will work in this sangria. Try apple cider and blueberry juice, orange juice and cranberry juice, or pineapple juice and cherry juice.
