Pineapple Sangria

I have entered my mad scientist phase once more. It’s ok. I’m have a chemistry background & I like to drink.

So i find a Gallo Pineapple wine (a blend with favoring). It being tropical drink night, well what does one do? Find pineapple juice, rum & some kind of juice…and play.

Sangria is wine with sweetness and alcohol. Playing with a white wine means lighter alcohol. Rum, flavored or unflavored, it is the prefect choice.

Cherry Brandy had a great mild taste to complement the pineapple. I had a Dole Orange Strawberry Banana drink to use. Banana was flavor I needed. Orange would have worked, as a Triple Sec liquor would add same orange tone. But we want at least 2 distinct flavors to give full flavor. Tasting alcohol is not the goal here. So we honey.

So what do I have here. For 2 large wine glasses the recipe follows:

Take a shaker

Add 2 shots of rum

1 shot of cherry brandy

2 oz pineapple juice

2 oz of Orange Strawberry Orange

1/2 tablespoon of honey

Shake these till they foam.

Take wine glasses fill 1/3 with crushed ice & pour wine to level of ice. Add the mix from the shaker. Enjoy.
