Black Magic Sangria
2 cup fresh or frozen blackberries
2 cup black grapes, halved lengthwise if large
4 black plums, pitted and thinly sliced
2 (750-milliliter) bottle full-bodied red wine, such as Shiraz, Malbec, or Cabernet Sauvignon
1 cup brandy
1/2 cup crème de cassis (blackcurrant liqueur)
4 cups seltzer or club soda, chilled, plus more if needed
Place the blackberries, grapes, and plums in a pitcher. Add the wine, brandy, and crème de cassis, and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 4 hours or overnight.
When ready to serve, add the club soda and stir gently to combine. Taste and add more club soda if desired. Scoop a few pieces of fruit into ice-filled glasses before pouring the sangria. Makes around 12 to 16 servings.
