It's the time of year once farmers market stands ar explosive with attractive berries and their sweet smells fill the air. do not resist. move grab a pint of each! If you'll be able to keep yourself from uptake all before you get home, build yourself a pitcher of this sangaree — the primary in a very series this month of sangrias impressed by the farmers market.

Blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries have this sangaree screaming summer! Load it up with ice, high with some chilled soda water, and it's pretty on a hot summer day — or skip the ice and sip it as is on a cool summer's evening. Either way, you will be glad you probably did.

Traditional wine sangrias are not one thing I generally crave in summer. However, I found that employing a lighter wine, sort of a common grape vine Noir or a red wine, may be a fabulous base for a summer red sangaree. Also, since the berries during this sangaree ar a small amount delicate, this drink is best ready and served promptly, while not the normal long infusing.



Mixed Berry Sangria

Serves 4 to 6

Prep time: 10 minutes


·         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)



Place the honey in a small microwave-safe bowl and stir in 1 tablespoon of water. Microwave in 15-second bursts, stirring between each burst, just long enough to loosen it and make it easier to mix evenly into the brandy. Transfer to a pitcher.


Add the brandy and stir until evenly combined. Add the bluberries, raspberries, and blackberries. Add the wine and gently 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 Notes


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 looking a little muddled, letting the sangria chill overnight — or even an hour or two — really deepens the fruit flavor.
