"This make-ahead punch blends red wine, brandy, and plenty of summer fruit flavors. It's perfect for spring and summer brunch parties!"
Blackberry Syrup: – ⅔ cup granulated white sugar – ⅓ cup Water – 4 oz fresh blackberries sliced or mushed slightly – cheesecloth or mesh strainer
Blackberry Simple Syrup 750 ml bottle of dry red wine ½ cup brandy 24 oz ginger ale 1 sliced lime cut into thin slices 2 medium oranges 6 oz blackberries
If you want to skip making the blackberry simple syrup, add the ⅔ cup of sugar to the room temperature wine before adding the fruit. Stir until completely dissolved.
In a small saucepan, add the water and sugar. Bring to a boil until sugar is dissolved and the water is clear. Add in blackberries and simmer for about 10 minutes.
Transfer to the cheesecloth and squeeze all of the juice into a small bowl. Allow to completely cool before using in the sangria.
In a pitcher or desired serving dish, add all of the ingredients except for the soda. Allow to sit overnight in the fridge. Add the ginger ale and ice just before serving.
