Green Sangria for St. Patty’s Day πŸ€

Two Oceans sent me some wine to facilitate this post, but all opinions are mine and from the heart.Β 

St. Patrick’s Day is usually a slap-dash affair over here with a last-minute run to the dollar store for green hats and sunglasses and whatever else we can find because for some reason not one of us has a single green tee in our closets. The overall effect is as tacky as it gets, but it doesn’t have to be. With this easy Green Sangria you can be quick like a leprechaun and classy too, with layers of jewelled green fruits like the rolling hills of Ireland. Invite your lads and lasses and raise a glass to the emerald isle (and St. Patrick too). May your troubles be less and your blessings be more and nothing but happiness come through your door.

  1. You make green look very tasty. Maybe we should try it and celebrate St Pattys day together bonding over green sangria. Cause that’s what wine and green enthusiasts do. Lol
