I love having bright green things to eat and drink on St. Patty’s Day. But you can tell from the title of this post that I’m not talking about things that are naturally green or even remotely good for you. I generally try not to buy a lot of junk food, mostly because I know that if it’s in the house, we’ll eat it. I rarely buy Kool-Aid (even though I happen to think Tropical Punch Kool-Aid is one of the most delicious things ever), but if you can’t drink junky green concoctions full of sugar and fake flavoring on St. Patty’s Day, when can you?! St. Patty’s Day Punch combines all kinds of different junky beverages: Kool-Aid, Pineapple Juice (let’s not kid ourselves into thinking that it is good for you because it comes from nature!), and not one, but TWO kinds of soda! And I have to tell you, it is absolutely delicious! You just have to keep chanting, “It’s just once a year,” as you pour yourself a big, teeming glass!
