Pineapple Mojito Sangria

Ingredients
  • 3 medium limes, thinly sliced
  • Small bunch peppermint, leaves stripped (about 30 peppermint leaves)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 small fresh pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into 1 to 2-inch chunks (about 2 cups diced)
  • 750 ml bottle white wine (Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio)
  • 1/2 cup white rum
  • 3/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 4 cups lemon lime soda
  • Additional peppermint leaves and pineapple wedges for garnish

Instructions
  1. In a heavy pitcher, muddle* together the lime slices, peppermint leaves, and sugar. 
  2. Add the pineapple, then pour the wine, rum, and pineapple juice over the top.
  3. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 4 – 5 hours.
  4. Remove from refrigerator and add the lemon lime soda. Add ice and a few chunks of the pineapple to your glass and pour sangria over. 
  5. Garnish with additional mint leaves and pineapple wedge if desired. Serve & enjoy!


* When mixing cocktails, herbs and/or fruit are often mashed or ground -- muddled -- with sugar in the bottom of a glass before adding the liquid ingredients to intensify their flavors. You can muddle with a spoon or a pestle-like tool called a muddler.
