St. Patrick’s Day Midori Sangria

Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day is all about the color green! Wearing green and drinking a green beverage are two things you have to do to celebrate. Wearing a green outfit is much easier than finding a green beverage. Many bars will dye their drafts green, but if you don’t enjoy beer or want to consume a bunch of food coloring, your options are somewhat limited. Well they are no longer limited. Let me introduce you to this St Patrick’s Day Midori Sangrira. This white wine sangria gets its beautiful green color from the Midori. When you add honeydew, kiwi, limes, green grapes, and granny smith apples, you have a drink that is perfect for any St. Patty’s Day Party.
Here is the recipe Sally made.

2 (750 ml each) or 1 Magnum (1.5 liters)  Pinot Grigio

2/3 cup Midori liqueur
