Best Pot o’ Gold Jello Shots


Best Pot o' Gold Jello Shots

At most bars and parties, St. Patrick’s Day means green beer.  While chugging hops a little green food coloring is fine and all, but 2017 is the year to break the tradition.

That leprechaun can keep his Lucky Charms — this is the really good stuff.  Want a nonalcoholic version? Swap out the whiskey for another 1/2 c of cold water.
