Mixed Berry Sangria

Posted on July 11, 2015 by Stephanie

The next time you have a gathering, bring this delicious sangria with you!
Serves 4 to 6

1/4 cup dark honey, like wildflower or buckwheat
1/2 cup cherry brandy
1 cup blueberries
1 cup raspberries
1 cup blackberries
1 750-ml bottle Pinot noir wine
Club soda, chilled, optional

Combine the honey with a tablespoon of water and microwave just long enough to loosen it and make it easier to mix evenly into the brandy. Microwave for 15 seconds, and then in additional bursts as needed.

In a pitcher, whisk the loosened honey with the brandy until evenly combined. Add the berries and stir. Add the wine and stir.

You may serve this at room temperature as a still sangria, or chilled and served topped with chilled club soda over ice. Be sure each serving gets some berries too.

Recipe Note

  • Since the berries in this sangria are a bit delicate, this drink is best prepared and served right away, without the traditional overnight infusing. However, if you’re ok with the berries looks a little muddled, letting the sangria chill overnight — or even an hour or two — really deepens the fruit flavor.
