Lightly sweetened iced tea replaces the wine in this alcohol-free twist on fruity sangria. Frozen grapes keep the drink cold without watering down the flavour.

Ingredients

  • 5 tea bags
  • 8 cups boiling water
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup each lemon juice and lime juice
  • 2 cups cherries pitted and halved
  • 1 apple quartered, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 orange thinly sliced
  • 4 cups seedless green grapes

Method

In large heatproof liquid measure or bowl, steep tea bags in boiling water for 5 minutes; discard tea bags. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Let cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Pour into pitcher; stir in lemon juice, lime juice, cherries, apple and orange. Refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 4 hours.) Stir in frozen grapes just before serving.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: To freeze grapes, simply wash grapes and pat dry; freeze in an airtight container until solid, about 1 hour.
