Wine for St. Patrick’s Day? Why Not.

Published On March 3, 2013 | By Toni Spilsbury | Happy Hour, Holiday, Recipes

Beer gets all the glory in March because of St. Patrick’s Day.  I understand the connection, though.  Beer is the drink of the land in Ireland, and St. Patrick’s Day is when we celebrate the arrival of Christianity in Ireland.

But what about those of us who don’t like beer?  I don’t like beer even if it’s green.  But I do love wine.

Here’s a delicious wine recipe that may fit the occasion.  You can even throw in a few drops of green food coloring if you’re feeling left out of the green beer celebration.
