At Secrets Resorts we get into the spirit for almost every holiday, but we just can’t get enough of St. Patrick’s Day! With St. Patrick’s Day only a week away, it’s time to prepare our “Irish” treats, which include green beer and shamrock cookies for decorating!
Green beer of course starts with beer. Pour half of a 12 oz. pale ale or light beer into a mug. Add 4 to 5 drops of blue food coloring (Yes, blue! When mixed with the yellow colored beer, it makes the perfect shade of green.) Pour the remainder of the beer into a mug and enjoy your St. Patty’s Day!
Purchase pre-made sugar cookie dough or make it from scratch using your favorite sugar cookie recipe. Add a few drops of green food coloring to the dough. Knead the dough until green color is spread evenly throughout. Roll the cookie dough ¼ inch thick using a rolling pin. Use a shamrock cookie cutter to make the clover shape. Place the cookies on a baking sheet and bake at 375°F for 8 to 10 minutes or until sides are golden brown. Decorate with white or green frosting and green sprinkles.
