Hibiscus Kinnow Sangria (Alcohol Free)

Hibiscus Kinnow Sangria (Alcohol Free) - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
A festive non alcoholic Spanish drink with the goodness of spices, fresh juice and fruits. The hibiscus lends the intense ruby colour to this beautiful Sangria besides giving lovely floral notes.
I like adding some gondhoraj lebu slices to the drink for its heady fragrance.

Instructions
 

For the syrup

  • Mix together all the ingredients in a pan and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Switch off the heat and cover the pot.
  • Let the flavours steep for half an hour.
  • Strain the syrup and allow to cool completely.

For Sangria

  • In a large jar or a jug, mix together the hibiscus syrup, lime juice and kinnow juice.
  • Stir well. Always taste food or drinks before serving and I recommend the same here. Adjust flavours to taste, before serving.
  • Add the fruits and mint leaves and refrigerate for a few hours to chill. Pour in glasses along with fruits and top with ice. Cheers!

Recipe Notes

  • Kinnow is a mandarin hybrid (cultivated majorly in Pakistan and India) which has a lot of seeds and also a lot of juice. I have yet to come across a sour kinnow.
  • Feel free to use lemonade instead of orange or kinnow juice. You can even use club soda or sparkling water instead of juice. However, the kinnow juice perfectly counter balanced the tartness of hibiscus. A little bit of lemon juice and a few slices of it add a nice zing to the drink, bringing all the flavours together.
  • Also, feel free to use fruits of your choice
  • Since the kinnow I used were pretty sweet, therefore I used less amount of sugar for the hibiscus syrup. Adjust the sweetness accordingly.
  • Yield – Makes 900 ml
