I duplicated this recipe from a wonderful little tapas restaurant in Boston that serves the best white sangria I've ever had. I asked the bartender how it was made, and here's my modified version based on what she told me. I think it tastes exactly the same. It is important to buy an unsweetened can of pineapples, as that changes the flavor drastically. Read the ingredients and make sure there's nothing besides "pineapples, and pineapple juice." Note: Does not require 15 oz can of pineapples. They made me specify a size, just buy the smaller one. For an extra little touch, I froze raspberries inside mango-juice ice cubes. It tastes great as it melts. Garnish with orange or kiwi slices.
- 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.
yum.. yum.. yum... made this for father's day dinner... it was really really good... the fruit mixture was amazing.. thanks for the recipe.. this is definitely a keeper!!!
How did I never review this?! I just saw another recipe for white sangria and wondered if I had ever reviewed this one - seems not! I made this about 2 months ago when our Spanish assistant at school left and had a barbecue for her leaving do. Everybody LOVED it and the whole lot went very very quickly. It didn't take me long at all (although it was a challenge not to eat up all the schnapps-soaked fruit before I even made it hehe!) Completely adored by the English, Spanish, French and Poles at the party alike. DEFINITELY a keeper!!
Made this for a college graduation party and it was a big hit. Everyone loved it. I added Triple Sec in same amount as the Peach Schnapps and left out the raspberries. It went like wildfire.
