Fall is here, and so is a new flavor profile in sangria.

Pumpkins and Halloween costumes are popping up fast in area stores, which can only mean one thing: Fall is here. To celebrate, Django’s general manager, Michael Crownover, shares his recipe for a great seasonal sangria. Delicious and fruity with a hint of spice, this cocktail is perfect for the changing season. In a large pitcher, combine the following:

  • 1 bottle of merlot
  • 3 cups cherry/pomegranate juice
  • 1 cup fresh cherries
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2/3 cup Captain Morgan spiced rum
Pour over ice in a wine glass and garnish with a mint leaf and skewer of frozen berries.
