Fourth of July called…it wants you to make this Kid-Friendly Sangria Punch for your parties or BBQ’s so that everyone will love you.  This would go perfectly with my Hawaiian Pineapple Chicken Sausage Kabobs and my Classic Italian Pasta Salad.  There you go, your whole menu planned out for you.

Summer weekends are so busy, aren’t they?  Last weekend I had my “little” cousins’ high school graduation party.  They are 18-year-old twins and they have been “my babies” since even before they were born.  They may just be my cousins but they are like little sisters…or kids….to me – not quite sure which.  I’m very over-protective of them and can’t believe they are off to college in the fall! Mr. Wishes thinks it’s absolutely ridiculous, but I call the girls “baby” when I address them in person or in cards, etc.  Old habits die hard, right?  He asked me, “What are you gonna do when they’re 50? Still call them ‘baby’ and ‘sweet pea’?”  YES…yes, I am.  I got permission from them when they were about 6 or 7 years old to always let me baby them and call them by their little kid nicknames and I plan on making them fulfill that promise.  I might be secretly following them to college that first day with a box of tissues in tow…just saying…

I’m trying not to torment myself by starting a mental countdown of the weeks and days until they leave (as if it’s an execution date or something).

Non-Alcoholic (with option to add alcohol) Sangria Punch recipe is so refreshing and will cool you off on these hot summer days! This drink would be great for holidays or any parties year 'round!

SO, this fruity cranberry-citrus lemonade sangria punch is alcohol-free so you can easily serve just one punch at your next party that people of all ages can happily sip on.  It seems a lot of people aren’t too crazy about party punches because they tend to sometimes be overly-sweet, but this one is actually not too sweet at all.  It has just the right amount and nothing more.

Of course you always have the option to make the adult version of this sangria punch by adding some white wine.  I’m thinking vodka or coconut rum would also kick your party up a notch.  Enjoy!
