Green Hippy Shakes


  • One packet of powdered lemonade (I prefer pink, but for thematic reasons, they used yellow) A fifth of vodka
  • One can of beer
  • Blue food dye


  • Take a gallon jug and fill it halfway with water. Add the powdered lemonade and stir to dissolve it. Add the vodka and the beer. Shake and add more water to fill to the top. Add several drops of blue food dye until the mixture turns the right shade of bright green. Drink carefully—they're stronger than you think.
