Tropical Sangria

As summer  and graduation parties approach I thought this might be useful. This is also another recipe from my Survivor Party.

  • 1/2 cup peach schnapps
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pineapple rings , in their own juice, not sweetened
  • 1/2 cup juice , from pineapple can
  • 1 (750 ml) bottle dry white wine , like sauvignon blanc
  • 1/4 cup seltzer water
  • 1 kiwi , peeled and sliced
  • 4 strawberries , quartered
  • 4 slices lemons
  • 4 slices oranges
  • 4 slices limes
  • 1/2 cup raspberries (about a handful)
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
-Do not open bottles of wine or seltzer until ready to serve
-Place slices of lemon, orange and lime in a large sangria pitcher and dust with the granulated sugar.
-Lightly mash with a wooden spoon until fruit begins to break down and sugar begins to dissolve.
-Cover fruit with pineapple juice. Quarter 3 of the pineapple slices and add to pitcher.
-Add remaining fruit and peach schnapps. Stir lightly, then refrigerate for 4 hours
-Right before serving, add seltzer and bottle of wine to pitcher. Be sure each glass gets some fruit!
-Garnish with orange or kiwi slices and serve with fruit-juice ice cubes.
