Check out this recipe for sangria for your Halloween gathering.

Mixed Berry Sangria

Yields 4 to 8 servings

3 Tbsp sugar
1 orange, cut into chunks, seeds removed
1¼ cups mixed berries, fresh or frozen (blueberries, raspberries or strawberries)
1 750-ml bottle red wine
⅓ cup brandy
¾ cup orange juice
Extra fruit for garnish (optional)
Soda water or blood orange soda

1. Muddle the fruit with sugar: Place sugar, orange chunks, and berries into a pitcher and smash with a wooden spoon or a muddler to release some of the juices and break up the fruit.

2. Add the red wine, brandy, and orange juice and steep for up to 2 hours. The flavors will improve the longer you can wait before serving.

3. Pour into glasses filled with ice and extra fruit.
