March 17: St. Patrick's Day (green drinks and desserts)

Forget to wear green on St. Patrick's Day, and you might get pinched! The pinching tradition is American, not Irish, and thought to have started in the early 1700's. According to legend, wearing green kept people invincible from Leprechauns who were thought to attack people by pinching them. By giving your non-green-wearing friends a pinch, you were reminding them what could befall them unless they change their outfits.

Alternatively, you could avoid the pinch with these online food recipes featuring green beverages and desserts. After all, nothing will distract people more quickly from pinching you than feeding them first. Green beer often served in Irish-themed pubs is popular but smoothies and mixed drinks can feature prominently too. Desserts are easily made green by our Dishfolio food photographers with food coloring. Lay out the green in culinary style this holiday!
