July is National Berry Month and I’ve had the privilege of working with Driscoll, producers of delicious berries and Rios de Chile Winery to create a new recipe for summer.

I’ve had so many ideas bouncing around in my head on how to use these flavorful ingredients.  Salads, glazes for meats and maybe even a BBQ sauce but I finally decided on Sangria.


The rich Cabernet Sauvignon from Rios combined with the fresh, sweet berries from Driscoll are the perfect marriage for a pitcher of liquid happiness!

Even though July has come to an end, berries are easily available so pick up a bottle of Rios Cab, grab a pitcher and start stirring.  All you need to add is a few good friends and you are ready for a great time!
