Recipe from My Recipes – Kiwifruit and melon liqueur give the cocktail a green hue and slightly tangy flavor. Although we used green kiwi, you can substitute the golden variety for a sweeter taste and golden color.
Yield: 6 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup)
5 peeled kiwifruit, divided
3 cups ice
1/4 cup light rum
1/4 cup Midori (melon-flavored liqueur)
3 tablespoons Cream of Coconut (such as Coco Lopez)
1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
Cut 4 kiwifruit into quarters, and place in a blender.
Set remaining kiwifruit aside. Add ice and remaining ingredients to blender; process until smooth.
Strain mixture through a sieve into a pitcher; discard seeds.
Divide evenly among 6 glasses.
Cut remaining kiwifruit into 6 slices; garnish each glass with 1 kiwi fruit slice.

Place 2 drops of green liquid food coloring in the bottom of a beer mug or glass. Darker beers may produce a more olive green color over a lighter beer.
Add the beer and stir if needed.
Voila. Green beer. Two drops seemed to be the right amount to get a nice olive-green sort of color. Three drops resulted in more of a kelly green shade. Source.
Be aware that liquid food coloring is intense coloring and may stain hands, clothing or tablecloth.
