This Blackberry Sangria is easy to make and so delicious. Great for a party, BBQ or just about anytime you want something refreshing.
Sangria Cocktail Tips:
Blackberries and mint are in abundance during the spring and early summer. If you skip add the zest you will be sacrificing a lot of flavor.
Can you make ahead?
Fridge: After making the sangria, cover and place in the fridge for up to 3 days. Add ice to glasses before serving.
You can use strawberries, blueberries or raspberries if you cannot find fresh blackberries.
