Patriots Red, White and Blue Sangria
Recipe from: Created by Cathy Pollak for NoblePig.com | Serves: 6
1 bottle (750 ml) Pinot Noir wine (I used Pinot Noir for its tartness)
1-1/2 cups cranberry juice
1 cup brandy
juice from one large orange
2 cups fresh blueberries
6-8 ounces fresh red raspberries
6 ounces blackberries
1 large apple (I prefer Pink Lady), sliced very thin
To a large pitcher add wine, cranberry juice, brandy, orange juice and simple syrup.
Add blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and apple. Chill overnight.
Fill six glasses 1/2 full with ice and use a slotted spoon to add fruit from the pitcher to each glass. Pour liquid over ice and fruit and serve.
*For the simple syrup, add 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer until sugar is dissolved. Cool completely.
