Think Green ~ How to Color your Beer Green

It's the second of March and I'm already seeing green. 

Green beer......have you ever tried to color your beer green for St. Patricks Day?  It's super easy.

For this week's 'Best of the Web', Betty Crocker takes top honors with their simple instruction and perfectly colored green beer.

1. Start with a light colored beer or ale. The lighter the beer, the brighter the color. A dark beer will need more food coloring to get the same green. Too much food coloring, and you’ll end up with green teeth.
2. Grab a large frosty beer mug, and squeeze in 3 to 5 drops of green food coloring. Slowly pour beer from a 12-ounce can or a 16-ounce bottle into the glass. Watch the color mix as the beer goes in. Want more color? Add a drop or two of food coloring. Put the beer in first? NO! You’ll have to stir the beer, which will make it will go flat.

Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to leave a comment. I love to hear from you! Have a fantastic day!

That is so cool, but my husband wouldn't agree with sacrificing his beer for it...:)

Thanks -- without thinking I would have put the beer in first and stirred.
