The dog days of summer are upon us, and St. James Winery’s new Blackberry Blueberry Fruit Wine, a summertime perfect blend of blackberries and blueberries, is a great way to beat the heat.
Like all St. James Winery’s award-winning fruit wines, Blackberry Blueberry is made from 100% real fruit with no added colors or flavorings, making it a delicious starting point for wine cocktails, a cool treat when sipped chilled, and a great secret ingredient for cooking.
Use it to make a genuine fruit cocktail by pouring the wine over blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries, refrigerating the mixture for a couple of hours, then serve on skewers.
Blackberry Blueberry wine is the perfect base for cool treats like Fruit Wine Pops and Fruit Wine Shooters.To make the pops, blend 4 cups of blackberries and blueberries in a food processor, add sugar to taste (about 3/4 cup), then add 3/4 of a bottle of Blackberry Blueberry Wine, and a squeeze of lemon juice.Blend together, pour into popsicle molds, and freeze until solid. For the shooters, dissolve a two 3-ounce boxes gelatin (one blackberry one blueberry) in 2 cups of boiling water, add 2 cups of wine and pour into 1-ounce shooter glasses and chill until set.
