Namaqua Triple Berry Red Wine Brew

Prep time: 5 – 10 minutes

Difficulty: easy

4 – 6 servings



¼ cup honey

½ cup cherry brandy

1 cup blueberries

1 cup raspberries

1 cup blackberries

750ml Namaqua Sweet Red wine

Soda water, chilled (optional)



  1. Place the honey in a small microwave-safe bowl and stir in 1 tablespoon of water. Microwave in 15-second bursts, stirring between each burst, just long enough to loosen it and make it easier to mix evenly into the brandy. Transfer to a jug.
  2. Add the brandy and stir until evenly combined. Add the blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and the wine and gently stir. You may serve this at room temperature as a still brew, or chilled and served topped with chilled soda water over ice. Be sure each serving gets some berries too.


Since the berries in this Triple Berry Brew are a bit delicate, this drink is best prepared and served right away, without the traditional overnight infusing. However, if you’re okay with the berries looking a little muddled, letting the brew chill overnight — or even an hour or two — really deepens the fruit flavour.
