Healthy Berry-Rich Sangria for a Sparkling New Year

Very Berry Sangria

Ring in the New Year in style and moderation with this tantalizing sangria. Red wine is brain-healthy in moderation (1 or 2 glasses), because it is rich in resveratrol, which keeps neurons young and strong. Berries pack a neuroprotective punch, with their rich complement of fisetin and antioxidants. Raise your glass to this "low-risk-big-taste"  fruit-and-wine pair. Happy New Year!

Prep Time: 8 minutes


  • 1 bottle of red wine (750 ml)
  • 1/2 cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 cup blackberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 cup strawberries (sliced)
  • 1 12 oz. bottle of ginger ale
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 oz. blackberry liqueur


  1. Toss the wine, the berries, the blackberry liqueur and the sugar in a pitcher.
  2. Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight.
  3. Pour in a bottle of chilled ginger ale just prior to serving.
  4. Add ice in either the pitcher or individual glasses.
  5. Enjoy!
