Green Guinness


To celebrate St. Patrick's Day I enjoyed a few cans of Guinness.  But this didn't seem Irish enough.  Many drink green beer.  Why not try to make a green Guinness?

I knew the odds were against me.  The beer's dark, almost black color would overwhelm any addition of food coloring.

I tried anyway, first pouring the Guinness Draught into a glass, adding green food coloring on top, and stirring.  The beer took on a greenish tint over the blackness, but this aurora beerialis soon subsided.  The foam, however, maintained a fresh green color.
