Pineapple, Strawberry & Orange White Sangria

I’ve been looking forward to making this Sangria ever since I made the first version of it for my birthday in May. Crisp, cold, fruity, slightly bubbly and very boozy – I’ve talked to some people who haven’t even heard of white wine sangria, but I think I prefer it over red, at least for the warm months.

Sangria is one of those things where, once you get the basic idea down, you can really put whatever you want in it. Some recipes call for brandy, but I don’t drink brandy so I didn’t want to spend money on a whole bottle of it just to use a cup or two, so I just use white wine and champagne for the alcohol.

And look, I’m pretty cheap. I automatically look for the bottom shelf stuff when it comes to making sangria. This is not some fine-wine-dine experience… this is a sit on the porch while you grill type drink. I used Barefoot Moscato and Andre champagne – all together a little over $10 for the booze. Then a little pineapple juice and some fruit. Let the fruit and wine sit together overnight, then add the champagne right when it’s served.

In two glass pitchers: mix Moscato, pineapple juice, and fruit. Cover and let sit overnight or for 6-8 hours. Immediately before serving, gently stir in Champagne with a wooden spoon. Pour into wine glasses or mason jars and use a ladle to scoop out fruit. Enjoy!
