Pineapple Sangria

by Erin

The great thing about sangria is that it is loved by all no matter if you are a white or red person. This refreshing sangria is perfect for summer with strawberries and pineapple.

Red or white, that is the question. Most wine drinkers fall on one side or the other in terms of which is their favorite. I tend to gravitate towards the dry reds with the occasional semi-sweet red. Meanwhile if you hand me a white wine, it better be so sweet as to be mistaken for white grape juice because I feel like I am drinking nailpolish remover when it comes to dry whites. I guess it’s similar to my question asking whether you like nuts in your cookies or not, everyone has a different taste preference. Thankfully when it comes to sangria, you can make it appeal to white and red wine drinkers alike and this pineapple sangria is pretty much essential for sipping on your back porch while enjoying the weather.

i actually love both red and white but they have to be in the semi-sweet to sweet range. I can’t do dry. I do love me some sangria!! And this looks amazing!
