St. Patrick’s day just wouldn’t be the same without a cold pint of green beer! The whole concept seems brainless right… food coloring, non alcoholic beer, where can you go wrong?

But, there is a method to perfect green beer. It is important to choose a light color beer and to gradually mix in the food coloring. This way you will have the perfect bright green color and you won’t lose your foam from stirring too much.

This green beer recipe is a great option for all my non-drinking friends out there. We can still celebrate the luck of the Irish. Cheers!
