Ingredients

1 cup coconut water

1/2 cup sugar

One 750-milliliter bottle Sauvignon Blanc or other dry white wine

1 1/2 cups soda water

1 cup coconut rum

3 tablespoons lime juice

1 1/2 cups pomegranate seeds

2 dragon fruits, peeled, halved and cut crosswise into 1/8-inch-thick slices

2 kiwis, peeled and cut crosswise into 1/8-inch-thick slices

1/4 pineapple, peeled, cored and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices

Directions

  1. Bring the coconut water and sugar to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Let cool, then transfer the syrup to a 3-quart pitcher.
  2. Add the wine, soda water, rum and lime juice to the pitcher, and stir to combine. Add the pomegranate seeds, dragon fruits, kiwis and pineapple, and cover the pitcher with plastic wrap. Refrigerate the sangria to chill, at least 4 hours up to overnight.
