Boozy pineapple chunks mingle with muddled lime and fresh mint for a refreshing white wine sangria that's sure to be the hit of the party.
3medium limesthinly sliced
Small bunch peppermintleaves stripped (about 30 peppermint leaves)
1small fresh pineapplepeeled, cored, and cut into 1 to 2-inch chunks (about 2 cups diced)
750mlbottle white wineon the dryer side is best - I like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio
4cupslemon lime soda
Additional peppermint leaves and pineapple wedges for garnish
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.
Add the pineapple, then pour the wine, rum, and pineapple juice over the top.
Cover and place in the refrigerator for 4 – 5 hours.
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).
