Green Beer - How to make your own St. Paddy's Day green beer.
Recipe type: Drinks
Cuisine: American
Serves: 1 green beer
Green Beer For St. Paddy's Day. It's as American as apple pie, but it still manages to bring out the Irish in all of us.
  • 12 to 16 ounces of light colored beer.
  • 2 to 3 drops of green liquid food coloring per serving
  • Green salt for rimming the glass, if desired.
  1. *Optional* Wet lip of glass or mug and dip in green margarita salt for a more festive and slightly salty experience.
  2. Place 2 drops of green liquid food coloring in the bottom of a glass or mug. Pour beer into mug slowly.
  3. Drink Up!
You do not have to stir or mix this at all. Just pouring the beer over the food coloring will completely mix the two together. If you'd like a "streaky" effect, add a drop of food coloring to beer that's already been poured.

You can make a virgin green beer for the kids or non-drinkers by substituting ginger ale for the beer.
