I am so excited to be joining 4 other blogger friends for a St. Patrick’s Day virtual dinner party! I created a delicious sparkling white sangria as my contribution to the menu. Come along and I will show you how I made it.
If you are visiting from Simply 2 Moms, welcome! Their Double Chocolate Irish Whiskey Cheesecake looks delicious, and I can’t wait to try it!
I hope you saw the St. Patrick’s Day tablescape I created on a budget, but in case you missed it, you can see that here.
ingredients for Sparkling White Sangria
1 bottle white wine – I used Chardonnay
the sweeter the wine, the sweeter the sangria. If you prefer a less sweet sangria, use a dry white wine (like Chardonnay). If you prefer a sweet sangria, use a Riesling or Moscato.
1 bottle sparkling apple cider (sparkling cider is somewhat sweet, so keep this in mind when choosing your wine.)
fresh rosemary sprigs
green apple slices
directions for sparkling white sangria
mix white wine and sangria together, using a 50/50 mixture
slice green apple and add to wine mixture
(you can add other types of fruit to your drink, as well. Red apples slices, berries, peaches, oranges or lemons are great options.)
Garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary
Fill ice cube trays with white wine (whatever you choose for your sangria).
Add a small sprig of fresh rosemary, or a piece of fruit, to each cube.
(this step is optional)
to serve your sangria
Add “wine” cubes to a glass. Pour your sangria over the “wine” cubes, garnish with fresh apple slices and a sprig of rosemary and enjoy!!
I hope you try this delicious sparkling white sangria! I would love to hear if you do.
Be sure and stop by all of my friends posts to see the rest of the menu. Links are at the bottom of this post. Next up is Stacy at Bricks ‘n Blooms, and you don’t want to miss her recipe for Irish Cheddar and Beer Fondue.
