"This is the recipe given to me by a bartender at Carrabba's Italian Restaurant for their famous Blackberry Sangria. Goes down very easily, so be careful!"
Serving Size: 1 (422 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"I used Sutter Home Sweet Red Wine and it turned out wonderful!!!!!!!!!!! As good if not better than Carrabbas!!!"
"This is really great! It tastes just like the drink at Carrabbas!"
"This recipe is perfect! I couldn't find the Bisanzio red wine but used a sweet red. Also couldn't find cranberry juice that wasn't a cocktail juice. I substituted cranberry liquor in its place and it was amazing!"
"This is wonderful. It tastes just like the one from Carrabbas. I found the blackberry syrup on Amazon. Every time I make it I gets lots of compliments, everyone loves it. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing."
"AWESOME! I made it this past weekend and it was fabulous! Several people tried it and agreed. I also used the Sutter Home Sweet Red Wine. Very yummy!!"
"I love this recipe !!"
"This sangria is so delicious! But, looking at the nutritional facts I was startled to read that it has a whopping 539.8 calories per serving. Now I know why I keep gaining weight even though I watch what I eat all week long! It's the sangria that's packing it on. So, beware that even though this is basically the "nectar of the gods" it is really high cal."
"I made this with a few substitutions. I could not find the blackberry syrup so I used a raspberry syrup found in the coffee section of my grocery store. I used a blackberry wine, and for the juice I used a 100% berry juice blend. It was wonderful! I took it to a gathering of friends and everyone loved it."
"could not find the 14 ounces monin blackberry syrup so I took an 18 oz jar of blackberry preserves and 2 oz of blackberry snapps put it on the stove to dissolve the preserves and wow, it tastes great. Have already had to make a second batch the first batch did not last too long."
"Tried this recipe and it tastes just like Carrabba's. I used Lambrusco wine (as suggested by others) and instead of the blackberry syrup, I used smuckers from the store. Tastes the exact same. Thanks for the recipe!"
"FABULOUS!!! Made this for a party (minus the fruit), makes a little less than a gallon pitcher....was so glad I had some left over! This tastes just like Carrabbas. The two cups I had leftover sat in the pitcher in the fridge for a couple weeks, I stirred it up and drank them one night on the patio and let me tell you, it was even better the second time around! This will be a regular in our house! THANK YOU JUNEANGEL!!!!!"
"OUTSTANDING! I used Lambrusco for the wine, and since I like to taste the booze I kicked up the Tuaca amounts to suit my tastes. Thanks for sharing, a keeper recipe."
