Bartender, pour me a nice cold green one!
On St. Patrick's Day, some revelers will raise a pint of stout and wish their companions "Slainté!"—the Irish word, pronounced SLAN-cha, for "health."
This toast may brim with scientific truth.
At a meeting of the American Heart Association in Orlando, Florida, back in 2003, researchers reported that Guinness may be as effective as daily aspirin in reducing the blood clots that cause heart attacks. (The benefit derives from antioxidants, which the researchers said reduce cholesterol deposits on arterial walls. The compounds are found in dark Irish stouts but not their paler cousins.)
Of course drunk within reasonable limits.
If you want a pint of green beer, you could head to the local pub or make it at home. It is best to start with a light colored beer. It will better absorb the color. Once the beer has been poured into a chilled beer glass/stein, all you have to do is add a few drops of green food coloring and presto, you have green beer!
Enjoy your St. Paddy's celebrations how ever you do
and hoping this brings a wish your way--
Good health, good luck, and happiness --
For today and every day.
