After what seemed to be a really long week. I wanted to make something light and refreshing to end the week. My roommate and I love sangria. I wanted find one to make for us to enjoy on Friday night after work. When I searched for white sangria (our favorite kind), I found this Peach Mango Pineapple White Sangria. I just had to try a version of it. I made it Thursday night so we could enjoy it on Friday night. The recipe says that it tastes better if it sits for awhile. For the bottle of wine I used Moscato as that is what I had on hand. I also just used an 8 oz can of pineapple chunks. The last part I changed was the amount of sugar. I used only 2 tablespoons. As Averie said “to taste.” I liked it just using the 2 tablespoons, but everyone has different tastes.
Since I don’t have a large pitcher I just divided up the mango chunks and pineapple chunks into three mason jars. Then in a large measuring cup, I poured the wine and peach schnapps and added the sugar. Stirred that together and then added the pineapple juice. After that mixed, I pour the liquid evenly into my three mason jars, put the lids on, gently shook them and put the in the fridge.
In the morning I gently shook them before I headed off to work. All day at work all I could think about was the sangria that was in the fridge waiting for me. I could not wait to try it. When my roommate and I got home, we sat out on the porch to enjoy our sangria. It was delightful.
