Blackberry Tea Sangria
In a large saucepan combine the wine, tea, and sugar. Cook and stir over medium-high heat just until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool completely.Advertisement
In a large pitcher combine half the blackberries and the orange slices. Use a muddler or the handle of a spoon to coarsely mash the fruit. Add the wine mixture. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours.
Serve wine mixture over ice, if desired, and garnish with remaining blackberries and mint leaves. Top each with about 1/2 cup sparkling water.
Tip: Sugar substitute is not recommended.
