Member's Mark&trade Sangria (1.5 L) is a product of Spain that offers a delicious, refreshing beverage for any sangria lover.
What Is Sangria?
Sangria is essentially a type of punch that has been transformed into an alcoholic beverage. Some may call it "adult punch." Sangria is typically made by blending red wine with chopped fruit, and other ingredients like orange juice or even other alcoholic ingredients like brandy. Sangria wine bottles are typically rounder than other wine bottles but still contain the usual 750 ml of beverage. However, this Member's Mark Sangria comes in a size that's double the fun. That's to say, this red wine sangria comes in a 1.5 L wine bottle.
What's the Origin of Sangria?
Not much is known about how sangria or red wine sangria originated, although early versions of the drink are said to have been popular in Spain, Greece, and England. A predecessor to sangria called "Sangaree," was often served hot or cold and is likely to have originated in the Caribbean. From the Caribbean, this beverage was introduced into mainland America where it was actually very common during the colonial era but disappeared from the United States by the early 20th century. In the late 1940s, Hispanic Americans introduced the modern spin on Sangaree with sangria, and the drink soon became popular in the United States. By the 1964 World's Fair in New York, sangria had become an iconic beverage for the U.S.
What Does This Drink Pair With?
Member's Mark Sangria pairs well with a tray of fresh fruit to further accentuate its sweetness and also pairs well with spicy favorites like chips and salsa or a juicy carne asada with onions. The sweetness of the red wine sangria helps to undercut the spicier flavors and textures of the foods to create a well-rounded meal. Of course, you can also always simply relax with a glass of the red wine sangria in hand and enjoy the moment.
How to make blackberry sangria
This recipe only takes a handful of ingredients: blackberries, sugar, red wine, orange brandy and sparkling water.
The best part of this recipe is that you can make an individual glass or a pitcher full in minutes. That&rsquos because the fruit is muddled intead of soaked in the wine. No waiting around all day for the flavors to mingle!
This blackberry sangria is sweet, fruity, and dare I say, pretty darn boozy? I tested two wines: Beringer Paso Nobles The Waymaker Red Wine 2016 and Red Blend Portugal by Carlos Santos Lima. Neither was expensive and they both complimented the blackberry flavor nicely. Bottom line, don&rsquot break the bank for a mixed drink.
I served the sangria with a large ice cube to keep the sangria cold, but not water it down too much. The garnish I used is lemon balm from the garden and of course a cocktail pick with more blackberries. If you&rsquod like a more traditional looking sangria, you can add berries, apples or citrus to the sangria before serving. No matter how you dress it up, this sangria cocktail is a refreshing porch sipper. I&rsquom sure you&rsquore going to love it! Cheers!
Recipe overview: blackberry cobbler
Blackberry filling: A combination of blackberries, sugar, flour, lemon zest, and lemon juice. The lemon pairs wonderfully with the blackberries, creating a balance of sweet and tart flavors.
Cobbler topping: This is my favorite cobbler topping. It’s a cross between a sugar cookie and a buttery biscuit. Stir together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Add melted butter and vanilla and stir until well combined. No need for a mixer – this topping comes together in one bowl in just about a minute.
Assembly: Scoop the blackberry filling into an 8 baking dish. Press pieces of the topping between your fingers and scatter the pieces on top of the blackberries.
Bake: Bake the cobbler for about 30 minutes, until the berries are bubbling and the topping is beginning to turn light golden brown.
- 5 cups (1 pound 10 ounces) raspberries (red, black, or a combination of the two)
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
- 3/4 cup heavy cream, plus more for brushing
- Sanding sugar, for sprinkling (optional)
Make the filling: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix together raspberries, granulated sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Pour into a 9-inch square baking dish (2 inches deep).
Make the biscuit topping: Whisk together flour, baking powder, granulated sugar, and salt. Cut in butter until largest pieces are the size of small peas. Add cream, and use a fork to incorporate, stirring just until cream is absorbed (there should be lots of loose pieces).
Turn out dough onto a clean surface, and knead once or twice, gathering loose bits into ball. Pat dough to a 1 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into 9 rough squares, and place them on top of filling. Brush with cream, and sprinkle with sanding sugar.
Bake cobbler until bubbling in center and biscuit topping is golden brown and cooked through, about 1 hour (loosely tent with foil if biscuit topping gets too dark). Let stand at least 30 minutes before serving.
Fresh fig cobbler

I’m loopy over fresh figs such a seductive fruit. And I love the fig tree, especially on hot summer nights, when the big, coarse leaves smell deliciously like vanilla and cinnamon. I like its sturdy stance, and the branches so generously laden with green and purple-striped fruit. To open a fig plucked right off the tree and see the mysterious red heart that promises a mouthful of sweetness, well … it’s a moment to cherish and come back to when you need to remember how good life can be.
There’s a great big old fig tree in my neighborhood that I visit once in a while, checking if the hard, green little figs have ripened yet. I suspect the neighborhood kids and the birds will get most of them, but maybe I’ll get some too, if I’m alert. Until I can forage my figs, the market offers plenty of them. So I brought 4 pounds home.
Four pounds! That’s a lot of delicate figs. Now I had a kitchen quandary. Could we eat them up before they spoil?
Figs baked with honey that was good. Chilled fresh figs with frozen arak poured on top also good. And a cobbler, to finish them up. The recipe’s easy and it only takes half an hour to bake. The cobbler is light, just sweet enough, and a little different from the usual peach or apple cobblers.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/2 cup sugar, and another 1/2 cup later
- 2 tablespoons softened butter or margerine
- 2 tablespoons milk or orange juice
- 1/2 cup sweet or semi-sweet wine (I used Emerald Riesling)
- 3-4 cup figs, sliced into quarters
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Optional: whipped cream

Preheat the oven to 375° F (190° C). Use a medium cake pan or quiche dish.
Cut the stem end away from the tops of the figs discard them and quarter the fruit. Sprinkle the cinnamon over the figs and set aside.
Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Beat the eggs add 1/2 cup of sugar. Add the butter or margarine and the milk.
Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Stir gently until everything is combined. Pour the batter into the pan.
In a medium saucepan, boil the wine and the second 1/2 cup of sugar for 5 minutes. Add the figs turn them over in the hot syrup and pour the mixture over the batter.
Blueberry cobbler can be served warm or cold. I prefer serving it warm or room temperature, but I’ve been known to go for it straight from the refrigerator.
I typically serve blueberry cobbler with a spoon. Sometimes I serve it with the berries on the bottom and sometimes I put the biscuit topping on the bottom and spoon the blueberries over top.
I typically serve cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Alternatively, a good dollop of whipped cream or even a drizzle of heavy cream complement cobbler wonderfully.
