Pineapple Sangria

I don’t usually drink white Sangria, but this one is really nice on a hot day,
it’s not as “heavy” as the red sangrias can be, although still my favorite!

The temperatures here have been in around 70 – 80 degrees F and very humid!

This drink is sooo refreshing

😀

I found a couple of great recipes and “melded” them together…..

First one is from eat.drink.love

and the second

from Erin’s Food Files

 

 

Spring-Sangria-4-mark

Ingredients

3 cups pineapple juice
1 bottle dry white wine, such as Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc
1 cup brandy (pear brandy or apricot brandy will work)
1 ripe pineapple, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 cup pineapple soda
1 bunch fresh mint, roughly chopped

I added 1 sliced lime and 1/2 cup of orange juice and a splash of sprite.

 

Directions

In a pitcher, combine the juice, wine, brandy, pineapple, and soda with ice and stir. Pour into large wineglasses and garnish with the mint and orange.
