I love holiday-themed cocktails! I mean, who doesn’t, right? Last year for St. Patrick’s Day I made a very green and very sweet Green Apple Wine Cocktail with Ecco Domani Prosecco, stirred it with green apple stick candies and topped it with sour apple gummy candies, and it was surely tasty.

Ecco Domani Wine cocktails are just so easy to throw together but feel so special at the same time and a simple way to upgrade any celebration. This year for St. Patrick’s Day, I wanted to create something a little fresher, with a little -or actually, a LOT less sugar. I did a quick search and found this Emerald Isle Wine Cocktail Recipe and in addition to the appropriately green title, I thought it was the perfect solution for this year’s festivities. I grabbed my Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio, all my additional ingredients, and got to mixing my own version of it.

I must admit that it’s even better than last year’s. The flavor is fresh and delicious and not too sweet at all, it’s perfect. In fact, the main sweetness come from the sugar along the rim, so if you’re watching your sugar intake, omit the sugared rim OR better yet, just use a straw, because the rim is just so cute!

The fresh and textured garnish and green sugared rim give it the fun St. Patrick’s Day festiveness, so if you’re planning a party, don’t skip those special add-ons because they make this Ecco Domani Wine cocktail as pretty as it is delicious!

Here’s What You’ll Need…
