Perfect to serve with Corned Beef and Cabbage, or even an Irish Lamb Stew, this Saint Patrick’s Day Sangria will have your Irish eyes smiling…
Saint Patrick’s Sangria
makes 6 – 8 servings
1 bottle red wine (rioja or merlot work well)
1 lemon cut into wedges
2 oranges cut into wedges
1/2 cup sugar
2 shots of Irish Whiskey
2 cups seltzer water (sub ginger ale if you prefer a sweeter sangria)
Combine all ingredients except seltzer in a large pitcher, squeezing a bit of fruit juice into the wine before adding the pieces of fruit to the pitcher. Chill in the fridge for two or more hours. Before serving, add the seltzer, and serve over ice.
Happy St. Patty’s Day!
