Sparkling Green Sangria

Sparkling Green Sangria for St Patrick's Day - a healthy and gluten free cocktail - get the recipe at This Mama Cooks! On a Diet

While having a pint of Guinness or some green beer is a must for many during St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, for us gluten free folks it’s a no-no. Instead, how about trying something a bit more sophisticated but without the gluten?

Here's a green sangria that’s perfect for St. Patrick’s Day parties, especially if it’s warm where you live. There's nothing better than sangria when it’s hot out!

I especially like this recipe because it’s on the healthy side as it features cucumbers, grapes, and apples. Also, the calories in the wine are reduced by adding club soda to the mix. It’s almost like a spa drink, but with a little wine added.

And now you finally have an excuse to get that cool punch bowl set you've been storing since summer!
