Simple Hillbilly Sangria Recipe

**This recipe is for an alcoholic beverage.  
Do not drink if you are under the legal drinking age, and as always DRINK RESPONSIBLY.**

I don't know what its like where you live, but here in West Virginia summer is in full swing. It has been HOT, but I'm not gonna lie, I've been loving every minute of it!  After a LONG winter, one of my favorite things to do in the summer is to sit on the porch with a bunch of friends, gossiping  our lives away, sipping on my Hillbilly Sangria.

What is Hillbilly Sangria you ask?   Well, traditionally sangria is made with a couple different alcohols and some sort of fancy simple syrup, BUT because we aren't huge drinkers around here that's just a little over-the-top for us. So I came up with a really simple recipe that I affectionally refer to as Hillbilly Sangria because here in West Virginia the best recipes are birthed out of our resourcefulness.  It's refreshing and delicious and I know you're gonna love it so...

Let's get started!

For this Hillbilly Sangria you will need a few simple ingredients.

  • 1 Bottle of White Wine (whichever you prefer to drink)
  • 1 20 oz Can of Pineapple Chunks in Pineapple Juice
  • 2 c Sliced Strawberries
  • 1 Orange Sliced
  • Lemon Lime Soda

So obviously the base of any good sangria is the wine.  You can use any white wine that you prefer for this.  Just make sure it's actually something YOU enjoy drinking.  I'm using this Summer Breeze Sweet White Wine from a local West Virginia winery called Batton Hollow Winery.  It's delicious!

So, pour your wine into your pitcher.

Next pour the pineapple juice from the can into the pitcher with the wine.

Add the pineapple chunks to the pitcher along with...

The sliced strawberries...

And lastly, the sliced orange.

I realize this image is wonky.  It won't let me turn it so we are just going to deal with it.  lol
 Now place the wine and fruit concoction in the refrigerator to chill and steep for AT LEAST 2 hours.

Once the wine and fruit are chilled, and have had time to steep, you can top the pitcher off with some lemon lime soda to give it a little sparkle.

You know how girls love their sparkles!

Give it a quick stir and you are ready to head out to the porch and drink!  This Hillbilly Sangria is so bright and refreshing!  It's perfect for a girls night, BBQ, or any quiet evening in.  I know you're gonna love it all summer long so give it a try tonight!

And as always...

Happy Reading, Happy Eating, and Happy living,
