I love to try new sangria recipes! I also love pineapples so combining the two for a summer outing was easy. White wine is combined with pineapple juice and soda pop to create a twist on ta traditional sangria recipe.
I'm not much of an alcohol drinker, but I love Sangria – probably because it tastes like Kool-Aid! The first time I made this sangria I took it to a friends house for a pool party and it was a huge hit. When I heard that this week's Sunday Supper theme was picnics, I new that pineapple sangria would be a great addition.
Sangria works really well for picnics because it's best to make the drink a day before hand and let it set so the flavors can mellow. Just pack it up in a Thermos or other cooler for a tropical drink on the go. My peach sangria recipe would also work well if you aren't a fan of pineapples. Mango Pineapple Green Tea Sangria Mocktail is also great to bring along for the kids or anyone who prefers a non-alcoholic beverage.
I'm not a big fan of adding soda pop to sangria — it's just not authentic! But, in this case, I conceded and it was really good. If you want sweeter sangria, though, just add more simple syrup.
- 3 cups pineapple juice
- 1 bottle white wine
- 1 orange, 1 lemon, 1 lime
- Lemon-lime soda pop
- 2 Tablespoons (or more) simple syrup
- Pour pineapple juice and wine in to a pitcher (I prefer one with a lid).
- Add in simple syrup, tasting to get it to desired sweetness.
- Squeeze juices from orange, lemon, and lime in to the pitcher. Then slice the fruit and put in to the pitcher as well.
- Chill pitcher until read to serve -- at least a few hours, but I like to do it a day in advance.
- When ready to serve, add ice and 1 cup of lemon-lime soda.
