Combine the pineapple juice, ketchup, brown sugar, soy sauce, and rice wine vinegar in a pot.

In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch and water to make a slurry. Slowly pour into the pot, whisking as you pour.

Simmer while whisking until the sweet and sour sauce thickens and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from the heat.

Stir in food coloring if desired. Cool and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
