I love the flavor of raspberries. This sangria recipe combines the delicious raspberry flavor with red wine and raspberry-flavored liqueur. Chambord is a raspberry flavored liqueur from France. For the red wine, Rioja is most authentic, as it's a delicious red wine from Spain. You can substitute in any other red wine you enjoy. Merlot and shiraz work well here.
For the raspberries, fresh raspberries are always best, especially if you can find locally grown ones. Frozen raspberries have the benefit of being natural ice cubes when a few are added in right before serving.
1 bottle (750 ml) red wine
1 pint raspberries
3 shots Chambord
Mix together the wine, raspberries and Chambord until well mixed. Refrigerate at least an hour, or ideally overnight. This lets the flavors from the raspberries soak into the drink.
Serve the next day from a large pitcher filled with ice.
To turn this into a single-glass sangria recipe, a typical assumption is that one 750ml bottle of wine yields four large glasses of wine. Divide all ingredients shown by four. If you're making just one glass worth you probably don't want to wait for the overnight soaking. If the mixture doesn't soak, you just won't get as much of the fruit / berry flavors permeating the sangria.

Note: I created these sangria recipes and have had them online for years. If you find similar sangria recipes elsewhere, it's because someone copied my idea. I do appreciate it when visitors write in to warn me about the plagiarism - but usually there's not much I can do about it! What's really funny is when they copy my design right down to my sangria pitcher. That's a bit much :)
