Top o’ the mornin’! In celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day, this year we’re making an Irish whiskey-inspired sangria and I’m going to cook an Irish-inspired meal to celebrate!

Admittedly, Saint Patrick’s is not my favorite holiday, but I do think it’s a good excuse to make a themed dinner and, of course, a yummy cocktail! It’s also fun for kids and a great little history lesson in the Irish culture and to teach them who Saint Patrick was.

But I love a good white wine sangria, so it was fun to create something that’s perfect to sip and of course, full of green fruit!

How to Make Green Irish Whiskey Sangria

For this sangria, we use white wine, Irish whiskey and all green fruit like apples, kiwi, pears, and grapes! It’s so refreshing and the Irish whiskey adds that bold Irish flavor to it!

Ingredients

  • Green apple
  • Green pears
  • kiwis,
  • Green grapes
  • Lime juice
  • Sugar
  • White wine
  • Irish whiskey
  • Club soda

We added a little lime juice as well, which cuts the sweetness. I don’t love really sweet sangrias, but you can sweeten it to taste!

WHAT IS A GOOD WHITE WINE FOR SANGRIA?

You don’t need a very expensive bottle of wine when making sangria! Save your good bottles for sipping. Try an affordable dry white like Rioja Blanco, or a crisp Sauvignon Blanc or even a Pinot Grigio.

A LITTLE SANGRIA HISTORY

The term sangria dates back to the 18th century. Early versions of this cocktail were popular in Spain, Greece, and England. It was originally served hot and cold. Sangria as an iced drink was introduced to the U.S. in the late 1940s through Hispanic Americans and Spanish restaurants.

  1. Can I make it the night before and add the club soda the next day? It says to sit an hour but wanted to see if it can sit longer?
