Rainbow Ribena ‘Sangria’ – The Prettiest Thirst-Quencher You Can Make This Summer
Oh my goodness, so pretty! It is time to add some rainbow in your life, and have a cool refreshing Ribena at the same time.
I was inspired when I saw a “Rainbow Sangria” recipe video floating around Facebook, and thought I could do a non-alcoholic version to serve at the next gathering.
Plus, Ribena made with 100% Blackcurrants from New Zealand, will create that gorgeous purple colour. Rich in Vitamins C, no artificial flavouring, no additional, sweetener, no colouring.
The Rainbow Ribena Drink is also ridiculously simple to make.
Have it after a meal, and it almost feels like a combination of both a cooling thirst-quencher and healthy fruit platter.
This is also one way to get the children to have their fruits (willingly). Which kid doesn’t like Ribena? And each 200ml glass of Ribena drink can provide with a child’s daily Vitamin C requirements.
Rainbow Ribena Drink (makes one tall glass)
1-2 tbsp Ribena Cordial
Rainbow colored fruits (I used strawberry, orange, pineapple, lychee, green kiwi, and blue berries)
In a tall glass, add 1-2 tbsp of Ribena Cordial. You can adjust the sweetness to your liking. I bought the “Less Sweet” bottle.
Add in cut-up rainbow coloured fruits. (The fruit-to-drink ratio in the photos is much higher than usual, so feel free to adjust accordingly.)
Top it up with soda water, and it will be ready. Cheers!
– For the base, you can choose other Ribena flavours such as the regular cordial, blackcurrent, blackcurrent blueberry and blackcurrant strawberry.
– You can also add everything with ice into a pitcher, and leave it to the guests to scoop their own ‘rainbow’.
Other suggested fruits include
Red: strawberries, raspberries, pomegranates
Yellow: pineapple, golden kiwi
Green: green kiwi, honeydew, green grapes
Purple: red grapes, blackberries, dragonfruit
For a more indulgent version, I also added a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a Rainbow Ribena Float!
If you are throwing a party and would like an ‘adult variant’, include a touch of liquor such as brandy and Spanish red wine, and it will make a fine glass of sangria – Ribena version.
