Blackberry Sangria

Blackberry SangriaThis bright sangria, sweetened with a summer-ripe blackberry syrup, will inspire guests to linger for one more glass. Sprigs of fresh basil make a beautiful garnish.


* 4 cups fresh blackberries
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 1 1/2 cups water
* 2 750-ml. bottles rosé wine
* 1 cup cognac
* 1/4 cup lemon or lime juice
* 3 cups sliced peaches and/or plums
* Fresh basil sprigs (optional)


1. For the syrup, in a medium saucepan* combine 2 cups of the berries, the sugar, water, and a dash of salt. Bring to boiling; reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Strain through a colander, pressing gently without crushing the fruit; discard berries. Cool syrup.

2. For sangria, in a gallon jar or pitcher combine the blackberry syrup, rosé wine, cognac, lemon juice, fruit, and a few sprigs of basil, if desired. Cover and refrigerate 4 to 24 hours.

3. Serve with ice, additional fruit, and basil. Makes 13 cups (26, four-oz. servings).

4. *Test Kitchen Tip:
Use a nonreactive saucepan, such as Teflon-lined, enamel, stainless steel, or silver. The acid in the berries may react with metal.
