Green beer. We’ll never understand it. Yes, it’s festive on St. Patrick’s Day but is it necessary? No, because there are many delicious beverages that don't get their hue from food coloring. This year, opt instead for a verdant cocktail made with herbaceous, bracingly bitter and vibrantly colored green Chartreuse. Here, seven great options.
1. Garden Elixir
Cilantro adds fresh, herbal flavor to this gin cocktail.
2. Chartreuse Swizzle
This Chartreuse-based cocktail is a fun take on a tiki drink.
