Blackberry Sangria

Sangria is quickly becoming my favorite summer drink. While a recipe isn’t really necessary, these are the basic ratios I’ve found particularly tasty.

Blackberry Sangria

Add blackberries, raspberries, sliced strawberries, sliced apples and sliced peaches to a pitcher and stir in:

750 ml red wine

1/2 cup blackberry brandy

1/2 cup triple sec

1 cup orange juice

Serve over ice and and top with club soda.

When the pitcher runs low, just add more wine!

    Nicky! I am glad you posted–it reminded me that I still haven’t linked to your blog. I just added it now under McElfresh Family on the right nav. Smith Family fans, check it out!

    Doug, the best I can do is have a pitcher waiting on Thursday. And Mom, would you be surprised to know we made this again this weekend?
