Inspired Habitat: Don’t Drink the (Fake) Green Beer…Try Fresh St. Paddy’s Day Libations



OK, if you want to drink organic beer, especially if it’s locally produced, by all means, enjoy a green beer. But let’s skip the food-coloring-enhanced “green” beers that dominate our favorite bars on the 17th of each March. Then again, why stick with beer? There are plenty of festive options, and with organic liquors, juices and mixers, they can be a whole lot greener than those green beers you’ve quaffed in the past. Grab your cocktail shaker and some cool glasses and get shakin’!


  • 1 ½ ounces reposado tequila
  • ½ ounce sour apple liqueur
  • ¼ ounce agave nectar
  • 2 ounces lime juice

Pour everything into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with thinly sliced green apple.
