  • 1 pint of pale beer
  • 3 drops of green food coloring


  • Grab a pint glass and add 3 drops of green food coloring. The classic green food coloring that comes in the little squeeze bottles works the best!
  • Slowly pour your pale beer into the pint glass and watch the color mix as the beer is added. The lighter the beer, the bright the color. If you want the coloring more vibrant add a few more drops of food coloring.


  • Beer - We recommend using a pale beer so the green can shine through.
  • Green food coloring - If you prefer to skip the food coloring you can substitute wheatgrass juice for it.
