Shamrock Shots

It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day!

How stinkin’ cute are these little mason jars?? I had no idea they even existed until I saw them at Target. 

These are so easy and so much fun to make. You can also let the kids be involved and leave out the alcohol. 

The only time consuming thing about making these cute little things is making the jello and allowing them to set in the shot glasses. 

The rainbows are Airhead sour candy strips that I easily curved. The pots of gold are tiny little pots that I found at Hobby Lobby for very cheap, and I cut burlap to wrap around the top of the pots.

You could use the plastic shot cups; those would work just as well!

Obviously, I used Lucky Charms to decorate my little scene, and if you’re having a St. Patty’s Day party your guests will love this until they get too hammered to really pay attention to it.

Speaking of St. Patrick’s Day, I have lots of corned beef recipes. Since Reubens are my absolute favorite sandwich, I tend to use that taste profile to make unique dishes like Reuben Eggrolls, Reuben Stuffed Meatballs, Reuben Burger. <–Those are the shit, just sayin’.
