🍴Instructions

Step One: Make sugared jalapenos and pineapple

mixing bowl with peppers and pineapple chunks

Prepare the fruits and sugar. Toss the sliced jalapeño, pineapple chunks, and sugar in a small dish. Allow it to sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes until the sugar is dissolved.

Step Two: Add the wine and juice

Combine all of the ingredients, except for the club soda. In a large pitcher, combine the pineapple juice, wine, and contents of the bowl with the sugar and fruits. Allow to chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.

🔍 FAQs

Can I use any type of pineapple juice?

Yes, you can use canned pineapple juice, fresh pineapple juice, or even frozen concentrate.

Can I make this ahead of time?

Absolutely! In fact, it’s best to make sangria a few hours (or even a day) in advance so the flavors have time to meld. Just be sure to add the club soda immediately before serving or it will lose its fizz.

What if I don’t want it too spicy?

The recipe is easily adaptable to your taste. If you don’t want it too spicy, you can remove the seeds before slicing. But it’s not too spicy at all as written; there’s just a hint of heat.

👩🏻‍🍳 Expert tips

  • Don’t skip the sugar; you need it to help the jalapeno release its juices and flavor into the sangria.
  • For a less spicy drink, remove the seeds from the jalapeno before slicing it.
  • Our favorite wines for white sangria are Pinot Grigot, Sauvignon Blanc, Vermentino, or Grenache Blanc. But be sure to pick something affordable: an expensive wine is a waste of money in sangria.
