“Almost” Blackberry Wine Recipe

I love berries, and buy them whenever I can find a good price. Tonight I wanted some dessert, but didn’t have too much sweet in my cupboard, so I improvised.


1 tbsp Sugar

¼ cup water

3-4 blackberries

Glass of Wine, preferably something fruity

I made simple syrup, microwaving the sugar and water for 90 seconds. Then I smashed the blackberries into the syrup with a fork. I poured the berry concoction into a wine glass and then added some from the bottle I had open for dinner. It was a perfectly simple after dinner sweet.

Thanks to my friend Tina who is contributing these great recipes!  I am thinking this would be nice with maybe some white grape juice or light colored soda for those of us who aren’t big wine drinkers!
