Sparkling Green Sangria Recipe

Sparkling Green Sangria

Try Sparkling Green Sangria as an alternative to green beer for St. Patrick's Day or heavy cocktails.

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

I especially like this green Moscato sangria recipe because it’s on the better for you side as it features cucumbers, grapes, and apples.

Also, the calories in this green St Patrick Day drink recipe are reduced by adding club soda to the green drink mix.

It’s almost like a spa drink, but with a little Moscato wine added.

How to serve Sparkling Green Sangria

Keep things cool: Want to know how to keep your green St Patrick Day drink recipe cooler longer? Use large ice cube molds!

I love the square ice cube molds or frozen ice ball makers. Just freeze the fruit and some wine (instead of water) inside the ice cube molds ahead of time.

Using wine instead of water means your Sparkling Green Sangria won’t be diluted, too. No one wants a watery green cocktail on St. Patrick's Day!

Make it in a punch bowl: For your St. Patrick’s Day party, invest in a punch bowl set in which to serve your green sangria!

Having one will give you the incentive to make sangria and other types of punches throughout the year!

You’ll be surprised how often you use it. Plus, you can use it as a snack bowl for chips or snack mixes.

Also, serving this green cocktail in a punch bowl means that you don’t have to make St. Patrick's Day cocktails to order.

That way there's no need to play bartender at your party and miss out on all the St. Patrick's Day fun!

    This recipe sounds amazing minus the moscato. What are your thoughts on using procesco and either taking out the club soda or using less as proseco is already very bubbly?

      Sue, it’s supposed to be a somewhat healthy drink! (Ha!) I would stick to club soda or one of the flavored seltzers – so many to choose from that are healthy and delicious. Sprite would be too sweet and have too many calories!
