Happy St. Patricks Day

Since I’m a beach girl I enjoy refreshing cocktails over beer. I don’t expect to drink any Irish Car Bombs or green beer tonight.

Here is a great recipe for a “green” drink that isn’t your usual St. Patricks Day drink.

Green Sangria

1 bottle Pinot Grigio
1 1/2 ounce Midori melon liqueur
1/2 green apple, cored and sliced
1/2 lime, sliced
1/4 English cucumber, sliced
10 mint leaves
1/2 kiwi fruit, peeled and sliced
Club soda to taste

Combine all ingredients except club soda in a pitcher and refrigerate for a minimum of two hours and a maximum of eight hours. For individual servings, spoon some of the fruit into a wine glass before pouring and then top off with a splash of club soda, diet lemon-lime soda or diet ginger ale to taste.

Best Beach Bar Drinks!

One of my favorite parts about summer is the cocktails that you can drink at a beach bar or laying on a chair on the beach. The Today Show had a feature about the best beach bar drinks and I was watching it while I was on the treadmill at the gym! I know there are a ton of calories in each drink but I think they are sooo worth it… in moderation of course!
