Green Sangria - Pinterest Success {27}

In anticipation of spring and St. Patrick's Day next week, I was looking around Pinterest for a fun and easy green drink. This pin caught my eye because it looked so fresh and was low calorie. I love any drink made with club soda or sparkling water, because you are adding an ingredient with zero carbs. Also, sangria is a great way to use a bottle of left over wine and I knew I had some in my fridge.

This happened to be one of those annoying pins that have no recipe in the link - don't you hate those? But, I didn't let that keep me from making my own version of this sangria, using the photo as my inspiration.

Green Sangria

1 cup white wine ( I used Chardonnay, but Pinot Grigio would be good too)
1/2 cup club soda or sparkling water
1 green apple, sliced thin

Mix wine and club soda in a glass with ice. Add apple slices. Enjoy!

Note: a version of this drink can be made with any fruit giving it any color or flavor you choose :-)

Have a great weekend!


  1. I've had something similar, but with a sprig of mint in each glass. Delicious!

  2. Sounds perfect! I love sangria. Perfect refresher on the porch on a spring/summer evening.

  3. Looks refreshing! I like wine that's a bit effervescent. Kiwi would look great also, I wonder if it would work taste wise~~~

  4. Sound delish! Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Hmmm..yummy..Have a fun weekend..

  6. It looks and sounds delish! I don't like red wine and all of the red sangria I've seen is made with red. I love Pinot Grigio and like to toss raspberries in it.

    Have a Happy St. Paddy's Day!


  7. This looks so refreshing and would be delicious with a crisp Pinot Grigio. Enjoy your weekend! xxleslie

  8. Looks very refreshing..I knew you could "wing it"..

  9. Festive for St. Patrick's Day, for sure:) Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!
