We're not sure how many healthy benefits blueberries add to your drinks, but they add a lot of flavour to this sangria and helps lighten up the drink. It's another way to use those sweet and plump B.C. highbush blueberries that we have. 

2 cups fresh or frozen B.C. blueberries, divided
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup orange liqueur
1 bottle white wine
1/2 cup sliced apple
1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup orange juice
3 tbsp lime juice
1/2 cup club soda, optional

In a pitcher, combine 1 cup blueberries and honey, and gently muddle until fruit is lightly crushed but not pureed.

Add orange liqueur, wine, remaining blueberries, apple, strawberries, orange and lime juice.

Serve over ice.

For a lighter drink, top with club soda.
