Speaking of summer in a glass...... here is a recipe for a fabulous tropical sangria. Pineapple rum stars in this delicious tropical version of a white sangria!!! Be warned that it goes down a little too smooth!!!
glass pitcher (or a sangria pitcher)
1 lemon, sliced
1 lime, sliced
1 orange, sliced
fresh pineapple, sliced
1-1/2 cups pineapple rum
1/4 cup sugar
1 bottle of white wine (Reisling or Pinot Grigio works great)
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup pineapple juice
After the citrus fruit is well-chilled, slice each piece into thin rounds (about 1/8 inch thick) and place them into the glass pitcher. Sprinkle the fruit with the sugar and carefully pour in the chilled rum. Stir the mixture gently and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
After the fruit has steeped in the rum, crush it gently with the wooden spoon. This will release the flavors. Pour the white wine, pineapple and orange juices into the pitcher and stir. Serve straight-up, or over ice for a lighter drink. Hello, summer!
