12 Months of Drinks: St. Patrick's Day Green Sangria

Green-Sangria_650x650
We are on our second month of our 12 Months of Drinks blog series and this month I am sharing a St. Patrick's themed drink with you. At first I thought about doing a Shamrock Shake, but I feel that has been sort of overdone and who can really beat the one they have at McDonalds... so, since I am a wine lover, I decided to try out a St. Patrick's Day Green Sangria!

This drink was so easy to whip up and it was a nice twist off of a regular glass of wine. The fresh mint, cucumbers, lime and apples in it give the drink a light and refreshing taste... which makes me think of Spring!
