Remember when I said I had a few more summer recipes? This is one of them . . . . but it’s okay, right? I can wear white pants and still post sangria right? A few more days?

Over the weekend, we hosted a huge BBQ to say goodbye to my brother and sister in law who are moving over seas.

To call them my brother and sister in law, honestly, feels crappy. I use “in law” because it helps you to understand that we are talking about my husband’s brother and his wife, but honestly, they are my brother and sister. They are truly family. I have known them just a few months less than I’ve known Nathan, and they have always been nothing but kind and sweet to me. They welcomed me as family, even before I was officially family.

They are raising three of the greatest kids. Three sweet little boys (well, two little boys, and one not so little boy who is the same height as me at age 10), who are going to be such great men, that you’d be so happy to have them marry your daughters . . . you know, assuming your daughters aren’t their cousins, lol! They came with absolutely no notice when Piper was born and stayed overnight with our older kids. And they were endlessly supportive when Elliot died. Taking care of things at our house, fighting battles we couldn’t fight, and a few months later, taking care of Gavin so that we could take a much needed husband and wife getaway.

I adore them. Saying goodbye was so bittersweet, because I know that this will be so good for them, but so sad for us to not have them in town.

What is super necessary for bittersweet goodbyes?

Sangria. Lots and lots of sangria.

This is the second time I’ve served this sangria recipe to a crowd, and the second time it was deliciously devoured. It is based on the idea of a pina colada with the combo of coconut and pineapple and then a very sweet moscato in the background. If you like dry white wines, you might want to use something else, because this is a very sweet and delicious drink. You could cut it with white soda to make it not so strong, and last a little longer.

Though I will take mine strong please, especially when saying goodbye to my family.

    I have a dumb question is it 1& 1/2 cups malibu or 1- 1/2 cup?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Not dumb at all, Kristyn it is 1 and 1/2 cups.

    Tried this last night and it was yummy. Next time I’ll make it in a punch bowl so people will use a ladle. All the crushed pineapple ended up at the bottom of the pitcher. Even a spoon to stir it before pouring, didn’t help much since most people didn’t bother to stir it.

    Or, I might just use pineapple juice with a few larger chunks for garnish.

    Anyone have a better serving idea?

    • Lisa Longley says

      The punch bowl is a great idea!

  4. Mercedes says

    Do u put the crushed pineapples inside of the drink?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Sure do! I read a reader online who blended it and really liked it that way.

  5. Ed says

    Heading to Key West for the winter. Sangria is a perfect drink anytime in the Keys. We’ll give this one a go. Sounds great and is easy. Much thanks.

  6. Mildred south says

    Love Sangria. These different ones look delicious

    • Lisa Longley says

      Thanks Mildred!

  7. Tracy says

    Could you use one bottle of moscato and one bottle of pinot Grigio to cut the sweetness a bit or should the two different wines not be mixed?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I think that’s a great solution to cut the sweetness!

  8. Susan says

    What white soda do you recommend and how much?

    • Lisa Longley says

      If I am being totally honest . . . I like mine straight without any soda added. But you could add a little 7UP or Sprite to the top if you don’t like your drinks as strong.

  9. Rebekah says

    I went to christmas party I forgot to write down name of bottle.. All I remember is brown glass bottle that has pina colada alcohol in it and saw the label on top right corner front of bottle says “add milk”. I have spend many days to find that bottle and no where to find. Is there that you can tell me where can I look for more? Please help and thank you.

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m so sorry, it doesn’t ring any bells. I hope someone who knows chimes in!

    Would I be able to put this drink in a beverage dispenser and serve for a party? If so would you recommend making it the day before or the day of the party. How ,any pitchers should I make if I can use a beverage dispenser? Plan on using the recipe for my Fourth of July party.

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hi Caroline! I would chill your wine the night before, make a double batch the day of, and use canned pineapple chunks instead of crushed.

    • Renee says

      Hi there! I’m wondering what the consistency of crushed pineapple is? Does the drink have chunks of fruit like sangria or is it more smooth like juice? I see your comment about using chunks instead if you’re planning to serve it in a beverage dispenser, is this because the crushed pineapple would clog the spout? Any advice is appreciated thank you!

      • Lisa Longley says

        The crushed pineapple is like the middle of road between smooth and chunks. And yes, the crushed pineapple will get stuck in the dispenser. The beautiful thing about this recipe is how flexible it is. You could totally blend the crushed pineapple, making it much more smooth, before adding the other ingredients if you are worried about it.
