Rum • Sweet
White Pineapple Zin Mojito

On its own, White Zinfandel can sometimes be a little sweet. But in this Mojito, it’s perfect. Mixed with white rum, fresh pineapple and mint, the rosy wine comes through with its ripe strawberry flavors and hint of acidity. Make one for yourself or scale up the recipe and make a big pitcherful for a crowd of wine snobs—then, after they’ve poured themselves seconds, break it to them that they’ve been drinking White Zinfandel this whole time. It’s trickery at its most delicious.
