Non-Alcoholic Sangria

Non-Alcoholic Sangria
Serves 8, or one for 8 drinks

3 cups boiling water
3 black tea bags (or 2 teaspoons loose-leaf tea in an infuser)
1 lg or 2 sm cinnamon sticks
3/4 cup sugar
4.5 cups pomegranate juice
1.5 cups freshly squeezed orange juice (I’ve left it out when I don’t have it and don’t miss it)
1 orange, sliced into thin rounds
1 lemon, sliced into thin rounds
1 lime, sliced into thin rounds
1 apple/1 cup pineapple, cored and cut into 1/2-inch chunks (also not necessary)
4-6 bottles of ginger ale

Pour boiling water over tea bags and cinnamon sticks and steep for 5 minutes. Discard tea bags and stir in sugar to dissolve.

In a large jar or pitcher, combine tea, cinnamon sticks, pomegranate juice, orange juice, orange, lemon, lime, and apple. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour and preferably overnight.

Just before serving, stir in ginger ale. Serve in glasses over ice.  I keep a pitcher of the magic in the fridge and grab a ginger ale and stir in when I want a great treat throughout the week.  Works well!
