I myself love Guinness a Stout that's a very dark, almost black full-bodied beer!Nothing like it! But for this you'll need a lighter beer like an IRISH AMBER, Irish Red Ale, or a Golden Irish Lager Style BeerPint Glasses (16 oz). I make this for fun on St. Patty's Day. For the kids use a clear juice with coloring. This is a great way to get people interested in culture! Bring them in and the teach them.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 ounces golden irish lager beer
  • 3 -6 drops green food coloring


  1. In a chilled pint size glass pour beer add food coloring and mix inches Enjoy!
  2. "Slàinte!" (pronounced "slawn-cha"),.
  3. As the Irish would say. The traditional toast is the Irish equivalent of cheers and means "good health" in Gaelic.

I prefer dark beer. But, I think this idea is so cute for St. Patrick's Day!

Fun! The green doesn't alter the taste at all. For the kiddos, I use ginger ale! Looks pretty much the same.
