Wild Blueberry Sangria
A delicious and refreshing red wine sangria, this Wild Blueberry Sangria is made with fruity red Cabernet Sauvignon, fresh summer berries, brandy, orange juice, and garnished with mint.
- 1 cup wild blueberries
- 1 cup mixed berries of choice (we like strawberries & blackberries)
- 1 orange sliced
- 1 lime sliced
- 1 lemon sliced
- 1 cup Brandy
- 1 bottle Cabernet Sauvignon
- Chilled carbonated water
- fresh mint
Add the berries, orange, lime, and lemon slices to a large pitcher. Add the brandy (or whiskey) and orange juice and gently muddle to extract the flavors of the fruit into the juice and alcohol.
Pour the Cabernet Sauvignon into the pitcher and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
When ready to serve, fill a glass with ice and fill three-fourths of the way full with sangria. Top off each glass with bubbly water or lemon-lime soda. Garnish with additional blueberries and fresh mint, if desired.
