Pineapple Rosé Sangria

The molten depths of our earth’s core has flipped inside out and surfaced where I live. I’ve been patiently waiting for you to say this first so that I could piggyback off your complaint but you seem to be so silent and air-conditioned, so I’ll say it. It is viciously hot. I am a puddle of mean, heat-raged crazy. Ready to uppercut anything that’s pretty or small.  And it’s the heat that’s doing it aaaaahhhhh make it stop!

Breathe.

There are places that are hotter than here. I’ve been to them. I was a puddle of mean, heat-raged crazy. That shirt done got tore to shreds. Pretty and small things got uppercut….ted.

Okay. Cat’s out of the bag. I have been dripping sweat indoors, and that happens to people. Even princesses who can’t handle more than 78 degrees Fahrenheit.

I’m trying to sucker punch the heat back down to the earth’s molten core using sangria. Want to join?

You didn’t believe how hot it was until you saw the beads of sweet on the glass…it’s true. My beverages have been sweating and pissed off too.

This sangria was inspired by my boss, who is also a Gemini, also my dear friend, also heat-intolerant, and also has the same taste in food and wine as me. I have never been a huge fan of sangria, but I’ve had this little obsession lately called rosé. So when my boss informed me about the rosé sangria she makes, I knew I had to add it to our list of commonalities. Done.

You may have heard the skinny on pineapple juice, but it’s pretty much the swankiest fruitalicious bundle of goodforyouedness and that’s not even a tall tale.  Pineapple juice aids digestion because it has an enzyme (bromelain) that helps break down protein. This also helps relieve indigestion. It is also a natural inflammatory, antibiotic, and is high in Vitamin C and B6. Plus this thing I read says pineapple juice keeps you looking young and tall. That’s not a tall tale either.

This is a tasty treat-of-a-refreshing beverage and once you’re finished drinking it, you get to enjoy the rosé-soaked fruit. Gaaaawl, let me climb in the glass!

Why wouldn’t we add pineapple juice to alcohol? Make this for the 4th of July!

    I usually hold out on turning on the AC until it gets upper 90s, but my poor super fluffy kitties looked miserable and sweaty, so I had to do it for my babies. I looooove sangria (and wine in general) but I dont think I’ve ever tried Rose. I have to give this a try!

      I think it gets even hotter in Denver than here in the foothills…the last time I visited my friend in Denver, I swear I didn’t move the entire time I was there…just sat on the couch and melted. Sending you a bucket of ice cubes and some sangria, my friend!!

    I’m no good in heat. I get mean and irritable. My hair does crazy things and my nose and upper lip sweats. It’s not a good look. If I have to sit out in the heat, then this sangria is an absolute must. Matter of fact, you’d have to bribe me with one of these in order to get me to go out in the heat and humidity; otherwise, it’s not happening.

    • Julia says

      Same over here, sister. And my hair is bound to look like crap until it stops being muggy outside and I stop sweating all over it. This will not be a pretty summer…but that’s okay because I’ll have my sangria goggles on ;)

    Oh I pour me one too, it’s 90’s here with the humidity it’s well into the 100s, ugh! Some days I adore it and days like today when the A/C breaks down not so much. But seriously…i love pineapple juice drinks, this sounds delish!

    WAIT. HOLD THE FRIGGEDY-DIGGEDY PHONE. Pineapple juice does all of that?! Ok, I know what I am searching for tomorrow at the grocery and that ain’t no tall tale. You know this stomach of mine needs all the help it can get and if it’s delicious to boot? Yes puhleeze.

    If I was visiting you, we could sit inside and sweat and bitch about the heat and watch Grey’s and DH and cry and laugh and drink gallons of this sangria. Amen.

    • Julia says

      You said it all, sister. Sweat, bitch, eat, vegetate. And yeah, it’s CRAZY how great pineapple juice is for you (there’s even more stuff that I didn’t list!) My boss is a health nut too, so she was the one who told me how great the stuff is. Whoodda thunk it??

    We spent the day in 100 degree heat. I wanted to die. The highlight was checking out this recipe. Who needs water to hydrate when there is delicious sangria that will cure all aches and pains!

  6. says

    I would love 78 degree heat, we get to the mid 90’s with 120% humidity! Having said that we also just got new A/C, it’s so lovely.
    This really is a refreshing looking drink, love the berries and the pink color is so pretty!

  1. [...] I high tailed it. Hopped in the car, leaving molten lavaville for the mountains, where temperatures are 20 degrees cooler. For those of you who are still melting saunas of cranky sweat, my warmest (errrr….coolest?) wishes to you…I’ll be joining you again soon enough. Here, have some sangria! [...]
