How to Make Summer Sangria

Have you made sangria before? The process is really simple and starts with chopping all your fresh fruit.

Pineapple, oranges and cherries go into this sangria recipe. Before removing the skin from your pineapple, cut two thin rings. Cut the rings into fourths for the garnish and set them aside.

Now you can remove the skin of the pineapple. Cut the pineapple flesh into bite size pieces, being careful to discard the core. Place all the diced pineapple in the bottom of a large pitcher.

Next, thinly slice the oranges. Add half of the orange slices to the pitcher along with the maraschino cherries. The remaining orange slices are for garnish.

Pour in the bottle of moscato, coconut rum, orange juice and pineapple juice. Now comes the important part, let all that goodness soak with the fruit in the refrigerator for a few hours.

If you didn’t plan for the soak time it will still be yummy but it’s definitely better if you have the time for it to soak. This helps the fruit juices release and give it an even more tropical vibe. It also makes the fruit boozy for your snacking later.

Right before serving, add in the lemon lime soda. This keeps it’s bubbly and delicious.

How to Serve

This recipe makes 8 servings of sangria. Divide evenly between 8 wine glasses and garnish them with an orange slice, pineapple quarter and a cherry.

You can stick the fruit on a toothpick and hang it on the edge or cut a slit in each piece and place it directly on the glass.

Sip them directly from the glass or use a fun paper straw to make them extra festive.

Now take it outside and sip it while laying in a lounger. That’s the life.
