Pineapple Mojito Sangria

If you’ve visited Kitchen Treaty before, even once, you’ve probably already seen that I’m a fiend for white sangria. Almost psycho level. Less obvious is my affinity for mojitos, but trust me. I stalk ‘em both with enthusiasm.

And so. One dark and stormy night (okay, actually a partly cloudy day with off and on rain showers), I was thinking about white sangria and mojitos and also pineapple and limes. And then I had a sudden booming flash of brightness. I will put them all together! As one! Pineapple mojito sangria!

And then I rubbed my hands together with glee and laughed an evil (yet jovial!) laugh.

True story.

It took me a few tries to get there, but I dare say I think this is one of the best white sangria recipes I’ve made. It’s refreshing, but a little sweet, too. Unique, but not crazy-involved. Boozy, but not too boozy. Okay, actually, it is fairly boozy (and it’s also pretty easy to drink, so as always, I say:

pace yourself!)

I love that you start out by muddling lime slices, fresh mint, and sugar all together mojito-style, releasing all of those lime juices and those wonderful minty oils. (Bonus: muddling is an excellent stress reliever). Then you pour in white wine, pineapple juice, and a little rum, and then throw in a whole huge pile of fresh pineapple chunks. Basically, you desecrate the heck out of all that lime-and-mint mojito-y wonderfulness. And it is good.

Let it soak for a good long while, then serve over ice and top with lemon lime soda. (In the spirit of true mojitos, I really, really wanted club soda to work, but my Official Kitchen Treaty Test Panel [okay, my in-laws] unanimously agreed: lemon lime soda is so much better. But do try club soda if you like – please, go forth and laugh like an evil genius and make it your own!)

Pineapple Mojito Sangria

Boozy pineapple chunks mingle with muddled lime and fresh mint for a refreshing white wine sangria that's sure to be the life of the party.

Yield: 6 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 hours

Total Time: 5 hours 5 minutes

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 (on the dryer side is best - I like 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

Directions:

Instructions
  1. In a heavy pitcher, muddle together the lime slices, peppermint leaves, and sugar. You can use a muddler made specifically for the purpose or a sturdy wooden spoon.
  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. Garnish with additional mint leaves and pineapple wedge if desired. Serve (with a straw, if you like).

The mint leaves lose their vibrant green hue as the sangria marinates - I like to sprinkle a few fresh mint leaves in right before serving to add back some color and give revelers a bit to chew on, if they'd like.

    I want to drink these allllll weekend long. I love mojitos, I love pineapple, and as we’ve discussed before, I’m a big fan of the lemon lime soda + wine combo. :D

    What is “white rum”? I was at the liquor store yesterday looking for it and couldn’t find it, so I bought coconut rum.

    • Karen Troughton replied on June 10th, 2013 on 7:25 am

      I am so glad you asked this, because I just assumed the bottle was labeled “white rum.” But when I just looked in my liquor cabinet, it was not! So sorry about that! White rum is simply the clear, lighter rum as opposed to darker, more golden varieties of rum. Basically the rum that looks like vodka. ;) I’ll clarify that in my recipes that include white rum going forward. Meanwhile, I am super curious how the coconut rum tasted in this. Sounds divine!

    This was amazing! I made this last Tuesday night and my boyfriend and I killed a whole pitcher in one evening. (Yes it was a weeknight – don’t judge!)

    • Karen Troughton replied on June 10th, 2013 on 7:05 am

      So glad you liked it. Weeknight sangria is the best kind!

    This looks amazing. I am looking for a signature drink for a rehearsal dinner. Do you think I could add a little food color to make it Orange?

    • Karen Troughton replied on July 17th, 2013 on 4:46 pm

      Sure, you could add food color – or just add sliced oranges for a punch of orange! It would probably be a delicious addition, too.

    Just made this and is stiing in my fridge until tonight. Having dinner with two of my friends. I will let you know what we think! I used coconut rum as well since I already had some. Can’t wait to try it with grilled chicken and mango salsa!

  12. Gloria Laurent posted on July 25, 2013 at 1:38 pm

    Look like delicious. Going to try it this weekend

    Lemon lime soda??? You mean Sprite or 7Up?

    Lemon lime soda??? You mean Sprite or 7Up, either or neither?

    • Nat replied on August 3rd, 2013 on 10:06 am

      Thanks for the recipe it is delish & it was worth a trip to the store for fresh mint. I left out the pineapple juice because I used pineapple&coconut flavored rum.

      • Karen Troughton replied on August 8th, 2013 on 7:23 am

        Ooh, excellent substitution. Great idea!

  15. Amy posted on August 4, 2013 at 8:26 pm

    This was SO good! I subbed zero cal and less sweet key lime sparkling water for the lemon lime soda, and I would do less sugar next time but it is really delicious! Genius!

    • Karen Troughton replied on August 8th, 2013 on 7:21 am

      I’m so glad you liked it, Amy! I was proud of this one. ;) Your substitution sounds terrific.

      Just bought a jeuicr last night and wanted to try it. All I had was a bag of baby carrots. Juiced some and tasted it. Completely awesome. Had no idea carrot juice tasted so good! So much better than just plain carrots. Wow. That got me reading about the health benefits. What I have seen, you cant go wrong with carrot juice. Gonna get a bunch of fruit and vegetables today and juice like crazy!!
