Let’s start with beverages. Most people expect there to be green beer on St. Patrick’s Day. You can make your own. Start with an Irish Amber or lager-style beer. Add three to six drops of green food coloring into 16 ounces of Irish lager.

Don’t leave the children out! Even though they won’t get green beer to drink, you can provide them with their own green beverage. Add three drops of green food coloring to ginger ale, apple juice, lemon-lime or lemonade.

St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes

Finger foods are popular at parties and St. Patrick’s Day is no exception. These cupcakes are shaped like shamrocks. You’ll need these ingredients:

* Cupcake batter
* Cupcake tins and liners
* Aluminum foil
* White frosting
* Green food coloring
* Toothpick
* Green licorice candy

Make your favorite cupcake batter and add green food coloring if you prefer. Put the paper liners in the muffin tin and fill them halfway. Roll aluminum foil up into balls and place three of them spaced equally between each liner and the tin to create a shamrock-shaped cupcake.

Bake the cupcakes but take them out a few minutes early. Cool and remove the paper. Ice each cupcake with green frosting (1 teaspoon green food coloring to one package of white frosting). Draw veins using a toothpick and insert green licorice (2 inches long) as the stem. Read more
