What would St. Patrick’s Day be without green beer?
More appealing is my guess. But if you plan on having a green Bard’s today, there are a couple of different ways to do it.
Adding green food coloring to your beer is one way. Since beer is basically light yellow and since blue + yellow = green, I decided to try a little experiment.
A few drops of green food coloring added to the cup on the left makes a beautiful emerald green while blue food coloring added to the cup on the right is a truer green. After taking this photo, I added a few more unnecessary drops to each cup. The green food colored beer stayed green (just more intense), while the blue food colored beer turned olive green.
