Tennessee Blackberry Sangria

I hope you made it to the 2011 Tennessee Food and Wine Festival. If you didn't, here is a taste of what you missed. Sangria made with Tennessee wines proved to be a delicious and refreshing drink. Since Sangria is the Spanish word for blood it would make sense to make it with red wine and that is exactly what I did. I used Tennessee Valley Blackberry wine- Yum.

Serves 8


4 ounces triple sec
4 ounces brandy
3 plums, sliced
8 ounces fresh or frozen dark cherries
8 ounces fresh or frozen blackberries
4 cups Blackberry Wine
1 ½ cups club soda, chilled


Combine first 5 ingredients through the blackberries in a large pitcher. Stir in the wine. Chill at least 2 hours or until cold allowing the flavors to develop.
Stir in club soda before serving. Can add ice and a sprig of mint to garnish
