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
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!
