This recipe and these mini pineapple upside down cakes are sisters. And they both started when I went into Target.

I stopped at the dollar spot. Dangerous, right? Very. I found the cutest pineapple paper straws and had to buy them because I really do like the pineapple craze that’s going on right now.

So my brain went into pineapple mode, brainstorming pineapple recipes I could share with you so I could somehow include the cute straws in the photos. Kind of sad that this whole thing was revolving around straws.

I really should have bought 2 packs of these straws.. I went back to Target a week later and couldn’t find any left. So I’m salvaging them because you never know when you’re going to need a cute pineapple straw.

I wanted to make a pineapple based drink and that’s how this pina colada sangria was born!

It combines the best of summer flavors with the ease of sangria. Plus you can add garnishes that really make this drink tropical and fun!

A few recipe notes:

-Save yourself some time and buy 2 large cans of chopped pineapple – that way you get pineapple juice and pineapple!

-If you’d like a coconut rim on your glasses, dip your glasses in a small amount of corn syrup and then dip into shredded coconut.

-Target no longer sells these pineapple straws, so I linked to pineapple straws from Amazon

  1. Looks delicious! How would you modify this for kids?

    • Hi Nate!! You can use coconut milk in place of the rum and carbonated water (or sprite) in place of the wine. The proportion mights be different, I would just taste while mixing :) You could also omit the carbonated water and just do the pineapple juice, coconut milk, and maraschino cherries with some ice if you want it blended!

  2. Everthing looks so good . I don’t know what to make first!

  3. Hello Beth, you always have yummy treats on your website, I love it. I really like this drink, very colourful, great for parties, picnics. I will try to make it for myself.

    Keep up the amazing work!
