TIP OF THE DAY: Make Green Beer, Champagne Or Ginger Ale For St. Patrick’s Day

Even if you have nothing planned and no time, you can still do something special for St. Patrick’s Day:

Drink Green

Make green beer, sparkling wine, ginger ale, lemon-lime soda (7-Up, Sprite) or club soda.

  • Beer: Add 5-6 green drops of green food color to a 12-ounce stein; pour in the beer.
  • Sparkling Wine: Add 2 drops of food color to each flute before pouring in the Champagne.
  • Soft Drinks: Use 6 drops of food color per eight-ounce glass prior to adding the soda.
  •  

    ANOTHER TIP: Pour any effervescent beverage down the side of the glass, rather than into the center. It preserves more bubbles.
