Sangria is a wine based drink with fruit that is great for serving at large gatherings 

This pina colada sangria is so easy to make because we chose to use canned pineapple and jarred maraschino cherries. They are both available year round, so you can enjoy tropical sangria anytime! 

Add fresh garnishes to elevate this adult beverage into something you’d be served at an ocean side resort!

I have made this 6 times already. Everyone raves about it. I add just a few spoons of cream of coconut to give it a creamy taste. I made it with moscato and white sangria but the moscato was so much better.  A very dangerous drink. Lol. Better served on ice so it’s nice and cold.

Pina Colada Sangria Ingredients

  • pineapple juice
  • chopped pineapple
  • maraschino cherries
  • white wine
  • coconut rum

How to Make Sangria

In a large pitcher, combine the canned chopped pineapple (and juice), white wine, coconut rum, and maraschino cherries. Stir with a spatula to combine. Refrigerate until chilled. 

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 pina colada sangria recipe calls for white wine. Choose one of these recommended white wines:

  • moscato
  • pinot grigio
  • Chardonnay 
  • 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!

  1. I make this all the time at the lake but I freeze my pineapple chunks then there’s no need to use ice 😉 just my little hack. 

  2. 5 stars
    This was a delicious drink! I used a mango strawberry moscato and it was so good! Made it for a party and everyone enjoyed it.

  3. When you put in the chopped pineapple, do you add any more of the juice? Recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups pineapple juice I know. But then drain the rest and then add no more juice from the chopped pineapple? It is a little confusing. Thank you.
