Alcohol-less Sangria

One of the hardest parts of living a more halal life is giving up alcohol.  I won’t lie to you- I’ve been quite the fan.  In order to make this transition easier, I started looking up mocktails (alcohol-less cocktails!).  The first thing I tried was a tonic and lime…no vodka for this girl!  I found I liked it, so I went to good old Uncle Google for somemore ideas.

I looooove sangria (or should I say, loved), so when I saw this recipe- I knew I had to try it.  I already had two glasses of it today! The hubby loves it too!  This means…I must share!
