Get your green on this week

St Pattys Day usually calls for all types of green dye, goofy tall hats and face paint. While I wouldn't stop anyone from indulging in such amusement, I will lend a drink recipe that will get you more green, in more than one way.
First off, celebrate with Green ingredients! Use Chartreuse, which is already green and doesn't require dye, as well as local Organic and Sustainable ingredients to keep your foot print light (so you can save the heavy step for dancing) and thirdly drink tasty cocktails, instead of cheap beer drenched with food coloring.
Here is a recipe for you to take to your St Pattys day celebration:
The Irishmans Hat
1/2 oz Organic Nation Gin
1/2 oz Chartreuse
1/2 oz Brandy Liqueur
1/2 oz Lime Juice
Shake the above ingredients and serve in one of two ways:
Strain into a cocktail glass and serve.
Strain into a Large Flute and top with Champagne, this will surely impress the lassies at the party.
Garnish with a lime twist or lime wheel with a 4 leaf clover!
