We can't speak for your eating and drinking habits -- but we will say this -- we pretty much swore off consuming anything dyed sno-cone colors by the time we saw the back side of twenty. The only exception? The rare occaision when we find ourselves at a real-live amusement park (and even then, it never ends well).
But we get it, St. Patrick's Day calls for a green bevy or two. So we pulled together three of our coctail faves that will get you to emerald-city without ever having to reach for the food coloring. (Plus one more for those of you who just have to go there).
