No Food Coloring Green Beer

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 bottle beer
  • 1 tbs wheatgrass juice or powder (Use more as needed)

Instructions

Add the wheatgrass to the bottom of a glass.

Pour the beer over the wheatgrass, to about the halfway mark. The pouring action and the carbonation of the beer should stir things for you.

If you're happy with how the flavor and color is turning out, continue pouring the beer. If you'd like more concentration, add a little more wheatgrass before continuing to pour the beer.

Notes

Wheatgrass has a very summery vegetal taste, very much like what you'd expect when you hear "grass." It pairs well with most lighter beers, especially hoppy ones, if you're an IPA fan, clean and crisp ones, and sometimes even the fruitier ones.   If you want to play around with other flavors and colors while still avoiding food coloring, try using matcha tea powder or spirulina—or pretty much any high-chlorophyl plant based powder or juice.
