Happy St. Patrick's Day! - Drink recipes


St. Patrick's Day




This is how to make green beer. A handy tip!

Green Beer 
One 12oz. Beer - Any beer will do although lighter colored beers will display the green better. 
Add one to two drops of green food coloring.


Since I do not drink beer, dear readers, I found these great looking drinks for you here
They sure do look great!
