Pineapple Lemonade Sangria

I just love a good sangria for a party don't you? And this one is perfect for any party you're planning. This goes super fast so double it up, at the least!

You may have seen my Cranberry Pomegranate Holiday Sangria that I posted back around Thanksgiving. Made with a combination of cranberry and pomegranate juices and fruit, apple, orange and lemon, it's a perfect fall and winter sangria.  Well, spring is finally upon us, and so I think it's a perfect time to introduce a Spring Sangria for our weekend cocktails series - lemon, pineapple, strawberries, orange, apple - so fresh and delicious. I just love it!

I used a bottle of Mondavi Woodbridge Chardonnay and a Gala apple for my sangria - use whatever your favorites are. While you're here, be sure to check out our newest addition to the sangria family, Apple Julep Sangria!

Recipe: Pineapple Lemonade Spring Sangria Blanca

©From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish
Prep time: 10 min | Total time: 24 hours, to soak| Yield: About 16 servings

  • 1 (large) bottle Chardonnay
  • 1 (12 ounce) can frozen lemonade
  • 1/2 cup light Rum
  • 1/2 cup Triple Sec
  • 3/4 cup simple syrup
  • 1 large (approximately 20 ounce) can pineapple chunks or tidbits, in juice
  • 1 apple, unpeeled, cored, quartered and cut into chunks (I used a Gala)
  • 1 orange, halved and sliced thin
  • 1 lemon, halved and sliced thin
  • 6 strawberries, sliced
  • 1 can lemon-lime soda (like 7-up, Sprite, Sierra Mist)
  • Whole strawberries, or lemon or orange slices, for garnish, optional
  • Maraschino cherries, for garnish, optional

In a one gallon pitcher, combine the wine, lemonade, rum, Triple Sec and simple syrup. Stir well. Add the pineapple with the juice, apple chunks, orange and lemon slices, and sliced strawberries. Stir and refrigerate overnight or for several hours.

Just before serving, add in the 7-up and stir. Fill individual glasses halfway with ice, scoop out some of the fruit, then add more ice. Pour the sangria in and top off with a garnish of a fresh strawberry or a fresh slice of lemon or orange. Toss a cherry or two on top and serve!

Remember, drink responsibly, don't drink and drive and don't let your friends drink and drive.
