A large glass of this would be great

I love Sangria - specifically my friend Nicole's Sangria. Mmmm yum.
I found this as I was off dreaming and gazing at Forty-Sixty at Grace. Sounds amazing! Also, I LOVE anything with Chambord - the absolute best!

blackberry sangria

2 bottles of grenache based red wine
(or any wine you like really)
750 ml club soda
1/2 vanilla bean
2 cinnamon sticks
1 lemon (sliced)
1 cup fresh orange juice
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup fresh blackberries or marionberries
2 apples sliced
1/2 cup chambord

1. combine wine, sugar, chambord,
half of the blackberries, vanilla pod, orange juice,
cinnamon sticks and lemon together
and stir until sugar is mostly dissolved.
2. let stand in refridgerator for 2 - 24 hours.
3. before serving add the soda,
the sliced apples
and the remaining blackberries.
4. i think it's nice to serve it from an old bottle
with a pretty ladle
and lots of ice
into small glass lassie cups.
5. but, anything you like is just fine. enjoy!

my second love is sangria, and oh how i ache for it!

have you actually ever tried to make your own? i've always thought about doing it but figured it wouldn't be as good as the ones i've had in fancy little restaurants. and also that it may be a good think i can't make it... it may get a little out of control around here.

Just reading that recipe made me SO thirsty! Great pic, too, huh?
This is my "pretend" drink.
