Now how do we make this grand Irish tradition a wine holiday you ask?
Well, how about with a glass of GREEN WINE?! That's right! Someone finally came up with green wine, and that someone might just be me! :)
So how did I do this you ask? Well, it is quite simple... and quite fun!
Step 1: Pick out your favorite bottle of Pinot Grigio.
Why Pinot Grigio? Good question! Well, if you look at your selection, majority of your Pinot Grigio bottles are green, or have some green to them somewhere on the label. Hence, a reason why I picked the Kirkland Pinot Grigio.
The other reason for picking a Pinot Grigio is that they are light, easy, refreshing, and inexpensive (Kirkland Pinot Grigio is on sale at Costco for $5.99! You can find a bottle of decent Pinot Grigio around $8 at any wine retail location!). Personally, for me, I have always assumed a little green tint to Pinot Grigio because of the citrus and light feel. I could also say the same thing for Sauvignon Blanc. The point: grab an inexpensive bottle of Pinot Grigio!
Step 2: Go Green!
Yes, what you see there on the table is GREEN WINE!! :) All it takes? A couple drops of Green food coloring! Yep! That is it! No harm to the wine in any way, no take away from the taste, just plain 'ol non toxic coloring dye!
Now you can make it your wine as green as you want. Like in the picture above, and the video available below, you can add a couple of drops to your own glass, which makes it an Emerald Green, or you can add a couple to the bottle, and come out with almost a Slimer Green (yes, totally just made that reference to the Ghost Busters. Can't help it. He is an awesome shade of green! Click on the link to watch a clip of Slimer's first appearance!)
Step 3: Enjoy!
Now that you have your St. Patrick's Day juice, it's time to celebrate and enjoy! I know it is a little weird to look at while you take a sip of the green delicious liquid, but I promise, it is worth it, and will be a huge hit at your next gathering! Plus, how many times can you say you drank Green Wine?!?
So sit back and relax with your bottle of Green deliciousness and have a Happy St. Patrick's Day my wine lovers! Cheers!
