This is a sangria I served at a recent family gathering. While this is the first sangria I’ve ever made (don’t ask me what took me so long), it certainly won’t be the last!

Kitchen tools and equipment needed:

  • That pretty much depends on the people you’re serving, but one pitcher of Blackberry Sangria should make 8 servings of 8-ounces each.

Can Blackberry Sangria Spritzer be made in advance?

  • Yes! It can (and should) be made in advance so the flavors have a chance to mingle and marry.
  • Please allow at least 30 minutes of marinating before adding the lemon-lime soda and serving.

Can the fruit and berries be changed up according to the season?

Yes.

However, since the fruits and berries I’ve chosen to use in this recipe can be found pretty much year-round in the market this sangria is easy to make throught the entire year.

What season is prime-time for fruits and berries?

Winter:

  • apples
  • grapefruit
  • kiwi
  • lemons
  • limes
  • oranges
  • pineapples

Spring:

  • apples
  • apricots
  • kiwi
  • lemons
  • limes
  • pineapples
  • strawberries

Summer:

  • apples
  • apricots
  • blackberries
  • blueberries
  • canteloupe
  • cherries
  • lemons
  • limes
  • mangos
  • peaches
  • plums
  • raspberries
  • strawberries
  • watermelon

Can frozen fruit and berries be used in this sangria spritzer?

While I don’t necessarily recommend it, I think it can be done with the following simple precaution:

  • Thaw the indivudual fruits and berries completely on paper towels before assembling the sangria so the berries (in particular) won’t bleed their color and muddy the appearance of the completed sangria.

Can different wine be used for making blackberry sangria spritzer?

Yes.

Feel free to use your favorite type of wine.

The reason I chose a rosé and pinto grigio is because they’re lightly colored and fruity in their own right with hints of citrus and apple.

These wines mix well with the apple cider (or juice) and the lemon-lime soda.

If you do decide to switch up the wine in this spritzer recipe please keep those flavor components in mind and make your choice accordingly.

Mixing it up LIVE in my Kudos Kitchen:

A while back I went LIVE with a Facebook video that shows me in my Kudos Kitchen whipping up a pitcher of this Blackberry Sangria Spritzer (along with a few other fun things).

I hope you’ll enjoy the video and spending some time getting to know me a little better!

Make the most of the boozy fruit leftovers!

Once the sangria is gone, you’re left with this amazingly flavored fruit.

The sangria marinated fruit leftovers can be eaten as is in an adult fruit cocktail, or add them to an adult smoothie for a little extra kick of flavor!

Sangria marinated fruits and berries should be served to the 21 and older crowd ONLY!

Yes, it would since not everyone is a beer drinker. It's nice and light with the addition of the lemon-lime soda.
