You are reading that right, my friends. Malibu Sangria.
Sangria is a staple in my life. Wine + Booze + Fruit + Juice and Sparkling Water = Happy Farmwife. This Malibu Sangria recipe will not disappoint any of my Malibu rum loving friends out there. The Malibu sangria is easy to make if you have some staples on hand.
Frozen tropical fruit. (I used a frozen fruit from sam’s club with strawberries, pineapple, mango and peaches)
Pineapple and Lime Juice
Start the Malibu sangria by pouring the frozen fruit in the bottom of a two quart pitcher. Then add the Malibu rum along with pineapple and lime juice. Now, you can let this soak until you are ready to serve it. For me, there is never any waiting. Just move right on to step two.
Pour wine into the fruit and juice combination. What wine you ask? I used a Sauvignon Blanc that was described as having tropical fruit, wet stone, lime peel, honeysuckle flavors. I am not sure why wet stone is a flavor we want in wine, but it must be good. Because according to my farmwife friends I made it for, it was delicious.
I get the bulk of my wine from wine clubs. My favorite wine club is Club W. I split this club with Katie from Fancy in the Country. That makes two happy farmwives. Check out the wine club. Seriously. Do it. Most wine costs between $13-20 a bottle. And are delicious.
Pour the whole bottle in.
Then follow it up with some soda water or some ginger ale.
Make sure when you are serving the Malibu Sangria you get some of the fruit in each glass. Now, grab a good book and find pool chair to enjoy the afternoon.
