Green Sangria

Verde Sangria #SundaySupper

Verde Sangria?! Yes, the Sangria is Green this week. I mean, can you blame me for going green? It is that time of year. I love the Green for St. Patrick’s Day, but also because it is Spring…or supposed to be. I am starting my seeds indoors now. Hoping for sprouts in the next few days. I can not wait to grow my own herbs, veggies and fruits. This Winter was a long one and I am happy to put it behind me.   In celebration of all things Green, #SundaySupper is sharing a theme of Eat Your Greens… or in my case Drink Your Greens. Sangria is a wine cocktail that has been spiked a bit with an extra spirit or two and mixed with fresh fruits. What can be wrong about that?

Verde Sangria

Ingredients

  • 1 bottle Sweet White Wine (I prefer a Moscato or Sweet White Merlot)
  • 1/2 cup Melon Liqueur (Midori is what I use to add flavor and green color)
  • 2 Fresh Limes (1 for juice and 1 Sliced into circles)
  • 3 Fresh Kiwi (sliced into circles)
  • 1 pint Blueberries (I like to use frozen berries to chill my drinks)

Note

With Sangria, I like to use a citrus fruit and then whatever fruit you may have on hand. Berries, melons, apples, they all work.

Directions

Step 1
Into a pitcher, combine your wine, liqueur and the juice of 1 lime. Mix well
Step 2
Slice and then add your fruit to the wine.
Step 3
Chill for at least an hour, preferably 2 hours. You want to give the flavors time to marry.

This Sangria recipe is great for the Spring and wonderful in Summer. As melons come into season, they are an awesome addition to the fruit that sits inside your pitcher flavoring the wine. The citrus and melon combination is so refreshing. Garnish with a sprig of mint and you have a great cocktail to share with your friends.

    Very pretty verde sangria, Shannon. Looks like just the kind of drink one might get at an upscale resort =)

    BTW If you ever visit Santa Monica, CA, please do stop by for a glass of Midori Melon. It’s always in the cupboard!
