In this recipe, you get the “luck of the Irish” in the form of some Irish whiskey in this version of sangria. It gives the usual taste of old-fashioned sangria a different sort of kick. You can use this festive green drink instead of green beer to make your party more special. It also pairs well with any traditional Saint Patty’s day meal.
Preparation Time: Five minutes
Total Time to make it: Five minutes
Ingredients to make it:
- One bottle of one of these white wines: Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Grigio, or Sauvignon Blanc
- A whole lemon, sectioned
- A whole orange, sectioned
- A couple of sliced up Granny Smith apples
- One half of a cup of white sugar
- Two full cups of either ginger ale or club soda
- One or two shots of Irish whiskey
- A dash of some lime juice
Putting it together:
Decant wine into decanter. Remove the seeds from the fruit and squeeze the juices into the wine. Toss in the remaining pieces, apples, sugar, lime juice and whiskey. Chill it overnight and then add the soda or ginger ale. Lemon lime soda can be substituted also.
Other suggestions: If you like, add a shot of gin, rum or brandy or try some frozen citrus juice. You can add an Irish flag for that special touch.
