Wine Cocktails - The Wineapple, Frosé, & Tiki Sangria


It’s Summer! Time to break out a few warm weather wine cocktail recipes for your next brunch or BBQ. There's been a lot of trials to get these tasting to perfection, so I hope you enjoy my creations!

The Wineapple

1 750-mL bottle white wine blend, chilled (I recommend The Delicious Monster)

2 cups chopped pineapple

1/4 cup Tito’s vodka

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1/2 cup fresh pineapple juice

2oz - 4oz agave adjusted to your desired sweetness

2-3 cups ice

Directions: combine, blend, and cheers to your health.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Quick Summer Frosé

1 750-mL bottle Underwood rosé, chilled

2 cups chopped frozen strawberries

1/4 cup Campari

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

2oz - 4oz agave adjusted to your desired sweetness

2-3 cups ice

Directions: combine, blend, and cheers to your health.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Beachcomber’s Spiced Tiki Sangria

Add some tiki flair to your gathering with my nod to the legendary Don the Beachcomber by replicating a homemade version of his classic Don’s Mix.

Step 1 - Create the syrup base in a small sauce pan by combining the water, sugar and spices over medium heat. Simmer and stir to let the sugar dissolve. Once it has reached a syrup consistency, let cool and set aside in a glass jar.

2 cups water

1 cup demerara sugar

1/2 teaspoon whole cloves

Two 3-inch cinnamon sticks

1-inch slice of fresh ginger

Step 2- Combine the ingredients below in a pitcher and let sit in the fridge overnight.

750ml Grenache

½ cup Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum

¼ cup Brandy

¼ cup Triple Sec

⅔ cup fresh white grapefruit juice

⅓ cup spiced syrup

2 navel oranges—peeled and cut (pierce cloves in orange peels and add to batch for an extra kick)

1 diced apple

1 diced pear

Serve in your preferred drinkware over ice.
