DAY 2 – Refreshing Non- Alcoholic Sangria

For a piquant Summer drink, Sangria would never fail to satisfy and refresh.

Sangria  is a Spanish drink usually prepared with  wine, fruits, sugar and spices.

Today I am sharing a non- alcoholic version of Sangria!!! It is the best way to quench your thirst this Summer.

What’s new?

This drink is citrusy  and has  health beneficial ingredients like

Aloevera  which contains wealth of nutrients like vitamins A, C, E, and B12 as well as minerals potassium and zinc. It’s been reported to promote heart health.

Pomegranate which contains the maximum amount of antioxidants. An interesting fact- pomegranate is ranked next to green tea for it;s health benefits.
