Blackberry & Clementine Sangria

And I'm back after a bit of a technology detox. It's oddly refreshing when you don't post on social media for a week. Now I didn't go cold turkey, I still liked and commented on stuff, but no posting on my part. I didn't realize how much I pressured myself to post, or get the so called perfect picture.

I'm slowly beginning to post again, but I'm taking more of a carefree approach to it than I used to. Anyhoo, here's a recipe, if you can even call it a recipe, is extremely flexible. It's more of a guideline than a recipe.

I ended up making this because I had leftover wine (who ever heard of such a thing?!) from a recipe that I will be sharing soon.

This recipe is for about half of a bottle of wine, but can easily be halved or doubled depending on how much wine you have or how much sangria you want to drink!
½ bottle of wine
juice of 2 clementines
½ cup halved blackberries
segments of 1 clementine
chilled ginger ale or seltzer water
1. In a medium bowl or pitcher, combine wine and clementine juice. Stir in blackberries and clementine segments. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours, or overnight.
2. To serve, fill glass with ice if desired, then fill glass halfway with sangria and fill the rest of the glass with ginger ale or seltzer water.
If desired, orange liquor maybe added (I use ¼ cup per bottle of wine).
Feel free to substitute other citrus fruits for the clementines.
I used a sweet red wine, but use whatever you like best.
