  • Method: Stovetop
  • Cuisine: American


  • 1 pint fresh blackberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/8 cup water
  • 3 cups chardonnay white wine, chilled
  • 1 lemon


  1. Make a simple syrup by combining the berries, the sugar and the water in a small pot and heating the mixture to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer, stirring every now and then, until the berries have broken down and the mixture is syrupy.
  2. Cool the syrup and then pour it through a fine mesh strainer into a 2 cup measuring cup, pressing down and stirring the solids with a spoon until you have gotten all the liquid out. Refrigerate for several hours.
  3. Right before you are read to serve, pour the wine into a large pitcher. Pour the simple syrup into the pitcher and stir until the wine and the syrup are well-combined.
  4. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice out of one half and add to the sangria. Cut the other half into slices or strips.
  5. Pour the sangria into wine glasses, garnish with lemon slices and enjoy!
