Pineapple- Lime Sangria

Dayuuuummmm it is hot outside- and in this heat there is nothing more refreshing then an ice cold glass of fruity sangria. Sangria is a fruited wine cocktail and I love to make it all year long. In the winter I use red wine, lots of citrus, and cinnamon but when it's warm I prefer to use white wine and all the summer fruit I can get my hands on. The great thing about sangria is that you can totally customize it to your liking- don't like pineapple juice? Use orange juice instead. Don't like apples? Use pears or plums instead. The only problem with sangria is that once the flavors have time to meld you almost don't taste the wine at all and only after your second cup when you've fallen face first into your plate do you remember it's alcoholic. I often serve this on Shabbat in the summer as a cocktail before the meal, kind of like an alcoholic fruit plate appetizer or as a fruity and fun part of dessert. Either way, there is never a drop left and everyone always seem to leave happier then when they came :) Enjoy!

1 bottle dry white wine
1 liter (about 4 cups) 100% pineapple juice
1/4 cup lime juice
2 green apples, skin on, washed and diced
2 yellow peaches, skin on, washed and diced
2 white peaches, skin on , washed and diced
1/2 cup diced fresh pineapple
optional additions for serving: Pomegranate seeds, frozen blueberries, frozen grapes, frozen strawberries

Place all the fruit on the bottom of a large pitcher. Pour in the white wine, pineapple juice, and lime juice and gently mix so as to combine all the juices but not bruise the fruit. Cover the pitcher and refrigerate preferably overnight. An hour before serving add some frozen fruit to the pitcher for color, taste, and to serve as natural ice cubes.


  1. Delicious, healthy and refreshing drink.
