Finally, a sangría that even the kiddos can enjoy. Grape juice, lemon, lime, orange soft drink, and puréed raspberries give this ruby-red tea drink its great flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

Process raspberries in a blender or food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Pour puree through a fine wire-mesh strainer into a large container, discarding raspberry seeds.

Step 2

Bring sugar and 3 cups water to a boil in a saucepan, stirring often. Remove from heat; add tea bag. Cover and steep 5 minutes.

Step 3

Remove tea bag with a slotted spoon, squeezing gently; cool tea mixture slightly. Stir together raspberry puree, tea mixture, grape juice, and lemon and lime slices. Cover and chill 2 to 24 hours. Stir in orange soft drink, and serve immediately over ice.

Chef's Notes

You can substitute 1 cup orange juice and 1 cup lemon-lime soft drink for orange soft drink.

This was yummy. The raspberry puree was kind of a pain, though. It didn't just pour through my sieve-I had to actually force it through to separate the puree from the seeds. However, the flavor was very good. I couldn't find a family sized tea bag, so I just threw 5 tea bags in the water-I used green tea.

I used strawberries instead of raspberries so I wouldn't have to strain the seeds and it tasted great! I made it for a party and it looks very pretty.

I mix the puree, with the seeds, to the tea and grape juice, and then strain it. It is much easier than trying to strain the thick puree.
