I have never met a fruit that I didn't like Sangria-ed
Sangria is one of those easy cocktails. You don't have to baby sit it or serve it right away. There isn't any ice that is going to make it watery. In fact it tastes even better when its been married together for a while. It's an excellent party cocktail. Strong enough to get everyone feeling good but sweet enough to keep them coming back for more. Kind of like if Christian Grey were to find his Justin Timberlake side.
This sangria has more of a tropical feel to it so I added rum as my liquor choice. I've had sangria with tequila and vodka as well. If rum isn't your thing you're welcome to use a different liquor. Bacardi went into this sangria but a coconut rum would be great too! I made this sangria with the fondue night we had last weekend. It's fruity enough to accompany a heavy meal and give it some balance.
Strawberry Pineapple Orange Sangria
1 Bottle of White Wine (I used a fruity chardonnay)
1 Cup of Rum (I used Bacardi)
1 Cup of Pineapple Juice
1 Cup of pineapple Chunks
1/2 Orange cut in thin slices (save the other half)
6-8 Strawberries sliced in half
Slice all of your fruit and place in a large pitcher. Squeeze the juice out of the other half of the orange. Pour in your cup of pineapple juice, rum, and bottle of white wine. Mix well. Chill in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours. The fruit will soak up the contents of the sangria in this time. Fill glasses with ice and serve chilled.
