 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.

    YUM! I need one of these right now – it’s been a looong day. Thanks for sharing at the Cook it! Craft it! Share it! Link Party! I’m pinning this to the party board and sharing with the FB group!

    What is white soda? I know that I will love it as it combines everything I love but do have some friends who will perhaps not want quite so sweet.

      Of course! One of my favorite things about sangria is how easy it is to swap things out. With the sweetness from the pineapple juice you should still be good.

    This looks delicious! Does it have to be chilled overnight? Would it make a huge difference?

    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?

    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.

    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?
