Get your Irish on and have a happy St. Patrick's Day with the ideas in this Howcast video series.
You Will Need
- A light-colored beer
- Frosty beer mugs
- Green food coloring or blue curaçao liqueur
Chill beer mugs
Chill some 16-ounce beer mugs in the freezer.
Add food coloring
When the glasses are nice and frosty, add a few drops of green food coloring to the bottom of each.
If you’d prefer not to use food dye, add of shot of blue curaçao liquor to each mug instead of the coloring.
Pour light-colored ale into the chilled mug, since beer that’s dark to start will just get darker when dyed. Add more food coloring if necessary.
Raise your glass
Raise your glass and offer this traditional Irish blessing: 'May the road rise to meet you; May the wind be always at your back; May the sun shine warm upon your face; And rains fall soft upon your field; And until we meet again; May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.'
