green beer for st. patrick's day
Green beer: six drops of blue
dye per 1 pint of yellow beer.

The American favorite for St. Patricks Day parties, is still the traditional corned beef and cabbage, but the Irish still don't understand how that came about.

Let's just say that in the great 19th century melting pot of America something was lost in translation!

Today, there's no doubt that corn beef and cabbage is the quintessential Irish-American dish.

Whether you're celebrating St. Patrick's Day in New York, Boston or Dublin, you're sure to find other familiar recipes like Irish stew or homemade Irish soda bread to honor the Irish and to celebrate the day.

Or, if you're felling creative, make a green theme party menu with recipes for the eating o the green such as spinach dip, asparagus soup. stuffed peppers topped off with Key lime pie for dessert!

Of course, what would St. Patrick's Day be without the green beer? Simply add blue food dye (just remember the magic number 7 - six drops of blue dye per 1 pint of yellow beer) to create your own batch of the holiday's signature drink.

For the college crowd - don't forget the lime green jello shots!

For everyone else, it's almost guaranteed that nobody doesn't like a Nutty Irishman cocktail.

Have fun and ...Slante! (Good health!)
