Everybody raise yo’ hands – it’s sangria time again!

Test tasting at my place has been fun these last few weeks as I’ve rolled out a couple of big batch cocktails.

If you’re looking for a super refreshing drink, my cucumber watermelon punch will come to your rescue.

And if you have a bottle or rose looking for a new home, then my berry rose sangria is calling your name.

If neither of these cocktail recipes is what you’re looking for then make my blackberry sangria. You’ll be happy you did.

So many restaurants, including Outback, Carrabbas, Bonefish Grill, and Applebees, have a blackberry sangria recipe on their menu.

But save your cash and make it at home instead!

How To Make Blackberry Brandy Sangria

To make blackberry sangria, you will need a pitcher and a strong spoon or muddler.

Begin by adding the blackberries and lemon and lime juice to the pitcher.

Muddle the berries until about half have been smashed.

Then add the red wine, white rum, and blackberry brandy and stir. Looks sooo good already, right?

Place the pitcher in the refrigerator to chill for 2-3 hours.

When you are ready to serve, add the lemon-lime soda and some fresh lemon and lime slices.

So simple right?

What’s in blackberry sangria?

You will need a bottle of red wine, white rum, blackberry brandy, lemons and limes, lemon-lime soda, and blackberries.

If you want to use frozen blackberries, make sure the berries are completely defrosted.

Also, you can use frozen blackberries as an ice substitute when serving or in addition to ice.

What can I use instead of blackberry brandy?

I completely understand if you don’t want to buy a bottle of blackberry brandy for just one recipe.

You will use a lot of a bottle however, and can use the rest to make my berry rose sangria.

If that doesn’t change your mind, look for blackberry liqueur or blackberry vodka when shopping.
