July 4th Patriotic Cocktail



  • 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



1. To a large pitcher add wine, cranberry juice, brandy, orange juice and simple syrup.
2. Add blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and apple. Chill overnight.
3. 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.
