  • 1 1/2 cups Wish Farms blackberries
  • 1 cup Wish Farms blueberries
  • 1/2 cup Wish Farms Strawberries, sliced
  • 2 cups of dry red wine
  • ½ cup brandy
  • 1/2 cup of a blueberry or blackberry juice (we used a blueberry blackberry acai juice)
  • 1 cup fizzy soda or sparkling flavored water (we used a black raspberry flavor)
  • 1 lime
  • 2 medium blood oranges (you may substitute for normal oranges as well) 
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary, optional
  • Dry ice, optional

Dry Ice Safety:

  1. Handle with Care: Dry ice is extremely cold (-78.5°C or -109.3°F) and can cause frostbite if touched with bare skin. Always wear insulated gloves or use tongs when handling dry ice.
  2. Ventilation:  Ensure proper ventilation when using dry ice. It releases carbon dioxide gas, which can displace oxygen in confined spaces. Use it in well-ventilated areas.
  3. Do Not Ingest:  Never consume dry ice directly or allow it to come into direct contact with your skin or mucous membranes. It can cause burns or injury if ingested or touched.
  4. Keep Away from Children and Pets:  Store dry ice securely out of reach of children and pets. It can be hazardous if mishandled.


  1. Prepare the Fruit:
    • Wash berries with cool water and pat dry
    • Wash and slice the blood oranges and lime into rounds
    • Slice the strawberries
    • Set aside some fruit slices for garnish
  2. Mix the Sangria Base:
    • In a large pitcher, combine the red wine, brandy, and blueberry juice
  3. Add the Fruit:
    • Drop the prepared fruit slices, blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries into the pitcher.
    • Gently stir to combine, allowing the fruit to infuse the mixture.
  4. Chill:
    • Cover the pitcher with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, but overnight is even better. This allows the flavors to meld and the fruit to soak up the wine.
  5. Serve:
    • When you’re ready to serve, fill glasses with ice cubes, or frozen blueberries and blackberries work great!
    • Pour the chilled sangria over the ice, filling each glass about two-thirds full.
  6. Top with Fizz:
    • To add a refreshing fizz, top off each glass with your desired fizzy soda or sparkling flavored water.
    • Adjust the amount to your taste; more soda will make it lighter and bubblier.
  7. Garnish:
    • If you like, garnish each glass with a sprig of fresh rosemary and a sliced strawberry.
  8. Enjoy Responsibly:
    • Sip slowly and savor the flavors of your mixed berry spooky sangria.
    • If incorporating dry ice in the presentation of your cocktail, please reference the safety notes below in addition to doing thorough research on proper usage with cocktails.
    • Remember to drink responsibly, and never drink and drive.
