Tropical Pineapple Coconut Sangria

1 Bottle Pinot Grigio or another white wine of your preference

2 cups 100% pineapple juice

1/2 c. coconut rum

1 pineapple, cut into chunks

1 orange, sliced

2 limes, one juiced, one sliced

2 cups pineapple coconut seltzer

Stir all ingredients together except the seltzer in a large pitcher and refrigerate overnight.  Just before serving, add the seltzer. Garnish glass with extra fruit, serve & enjoy!

Strawberry Orange Rose Sangria

        1 Bottle Rose wine

        1 Cup Vodka

        1/4 Cups Splenda Baking Sugar (I accidentally read my recipe wrong and added way too much, so if you want it really sweet, add moreJ)

        8 Large Strawberries

        1 Orange or 2 Clementine’s

        2 cans Sprite

 Cut up the fruit and mix everything together.  Serve over ice and enjoy!

Rose White Peach Sangria with Homegrown Basil

2 white peaches—peeled and chopped

1 nectarine — peeled and chopped

Put into pitcher and add 6 large basil leaves

Muddle together with wooden spoon

Top with 1 bottle of rose

Cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour

Before serving, top with sparkling water

To make sweeter, use sparkling lemonade instead (I used 1/2 sparkling water and 1/2 sparkling lemonade)

Raspberry Rose (labeled Raspberry Lime Rickey)

1 liter bottle Ginger Ale

Fresh mint leaves (I chopped these small, but can put in whole)

1 sliced lime (squeezed juice of ½ and then sliced it up and threw that in too)

1 package frozen raspberries

Can make the above mixture ahead of time to let the ingredients soak

Right before serving add 1 bottle of your favorite rose champagne, stir and serve cold and fizzy!
