Berry Sangria

About 1 quart


For the Sangria
1 bottle zinfandel (or your preferred red wine)
1 cup rum (such as Bacardi Puerto Rican Rum)
1 cup simple syrup
1 1/2 cups blackberries
1 1/2 cups blueberries
1 1/2 cups raspberries
sprig of mint, optional
12 oz lime soda
ice (optional)

For the Simple Syrup
1 cup water
1 cup sugar


Prepare Simple Syrup: Combine water and sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer until sugar dissolves, about 3-4 minutes. Cool completely.

Prepare Sangria: In a pitcher or glass bowl, combine wine, rum, and fruit. Gently muddle the fruit into the alcohol by pressing and stirring with a large spoon. Stir in the simple syrup (and mint if desired), cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1-2 hours. Before serving, stir in the lime soda. Serve over ice if you wish. Cheers!
