“This is so pretty. The colors are red, white and green. It's very festive, and although the colors and the name sound like Christmas, you could also use it for Italian dinners or parties. The Italian flag is red, green and white. And don't forget Mexican festivities, since their colors are also red, white and green. Feel free to add alcohol to the recipe, and party on!!”
