    Mocktail Pairing:

    Pair Paella Fried Rice with a pitcher of non-alcoholic tropical sangria. What you’ll need:

    -Plenty of fruit, for example: apples, oranges, peaches and lemons.
    -A selection of fruit juices. Be creative: grape juice, apple juice, orange juice, etc.
    -Your favorite variety of seltzer water for a fizzy twist! 

    How to Make: The first thing to do is to cut up your fruit and place it in a pitcher. Once the fruit has been added, you can add in your juices adjusting to suit your tastes. Mix the whole thing together and leave it in the fridge for around an hour. Before serving, add in a few cups of carbonated/seltzer water and mix together.
