This Fall Sangria is like the California wine harvest in a glass: Champagne grapes, Mission figs, crisp apples, and blackberries mixed with luscious Merlot.
2 cups red champagne grapes or Concord grapes (reserve a few for garnish)
1 cup fresh Mission figs, quartered (reserve a few for garnish)
1 Gravenstine or Honey Crisp apple, thinly sliced (reserve a few for garnish)
1 lime, sliced into wheels (reserve a few for garnish)
1 cup blackberries (reserve a few for garnish)
1 bottle California Merlot red wine
2 cups Italian grapefruit soda
Ice, for serving
Muddle the fruit: Combine grapes, figs, apple slices, lime wheels, blackberries, and wine into a large pitcher. Using a long wooden spoon stir and press fruit into wine, breaking fruit up a bit with the back of the spoon. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
Mix and Serve: Stir in grapefruit soda. Add ice to each wine glass, pour in sangria and top with the fruit you reserved to garnish.
