Black Sangria Recipe


Hellooo Friday! It’s the weekend before Halloween, which means major party time for many of you. You’ll be happy to know that I have the BEST sangria recipe ever for Halloween! I call it the Black Sangria and the name says it all! A sangria made with blackberries, black plums, black grapes and Apothic Dark wine. If you let it sit for about an hour the plums turn a mean shade of black and everything is black! It’s pretty incredible and super easy to make. You know me, it’s got to be easy or it ain’t happening! Entertaining is fun people! Happy weekend before Halloween, Charmers!

Black Sangria Recipe
1 bottle Apothic Dark
2 cups organic blackberries, washed
4 black plums, washed and sliced
1/4 cup brandy
2 cups black grapes, washed
1 cup sparkling water if you desire, but you don’t have to if you want a strong wine taste.

Add everything into a pitcher and mix with a large spoon.
Let it sit in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours. The longer it sits the darker the plums becomes. Best to keep sangria in the fridge. Enjoy!!!

    I love apothic wines but have of yet to try the dak. Where could i get some ?

      It was a limited release and is no longer available. I never had a chance to try it. I wonder if someone who did can suggest an alternate wine. Carnivore, maybe?

      Hi Adriana! I bought it at World Market but a few years ago! I just tried to search to see if it was there and I don’t see it anymore ;( I bet you could find one on Amazon. It’s a cast iron one!

      It really depends, but we say about 6-8… one serving each.

    Not quite flavorful enough. This sangria was more like wine with fruit in it than a fruit infused wine with fruit pieces. A few people suggested that next time I should cut the blackberries and grapes in half to release more flavor (which was my plan to begin with but I handed the recipe to a friend to make). Another person thought that I should freeze some of the fruit beforehand so that those fruit pieces can act as ice to keep the sangria cool.
