Sparkling Green Sangria Cocktail Recipe for St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about what to serve your guests. Instead of serving ordinary green beer filled with calories and unnatural food coloring, dazzle your guests with something a little more sophisticated for your taste buds. Demonstrate your chic bartending skills by serving a refreshing wine infused cocktail. VOGA Italia Wine can be used to make quick and easy cocktails for any occasion. VOGA’s collection ranges from Italian made Pinot Grigio, Premium Sparkling, Moscato, Quattro and Merlot.
