Short on time?
If you’d like to serve this pineapple sangria right away, use chilled wine and add lots of ice to individual serving glasses. Avoid putting the ice directly into the pitcher because it will dilute the sangria once it melts.
Want it to be bubbly?
Use sparkling wine or add club soda.
What Kind of Wine Should I Use in Sangria
This sangria recipe calls for white wine. Choose one of these recommended white wines:
- pinot grigio
- sauvignon blanc
- dry or sweet riesling
How Long Will Sangria Keep in the Fridge
Sangria is best consumed within 3 days. After that, the fruit may go bad. However, you can remove the fruit and seal the container for longer storage.
Tips for Making Sangria
- 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, but Amazon does!
