Red-White-Blue-Cocktails-Parade-Collage

Recipe from: Created by Cathy Pollak for NoblePig.com | Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 bottle (750 ml) Pinot Noir wine (I used Pinot Noir for its tartness)
  • 1-1/2 cups cranberry juice
  • 1 cup brandy
  • juice from one large orange
  • simple syrup*
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 6-8 ounces fresh red raspberries
  • 6 ounces blackberries
  • 1 large apple (I prefer Pink Lady), sliced very thin

Directions

  • To a large pitcher add wine, cranberry juice, brandy, orange juice and simple syrup.
  • Add blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and apple. Chill overnight.
  • Fill six glasses 1/2 full with ice and use a slotted spoon to add fruit from the pitcher to each glass. Pour liquid over ice and fruit and serve.
  • *For the simple syrup, add 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer until sugar is dissolved. Cool completely.
