If you know me, you know that I love my whiskey! There’s nothing like a little Irish whiskey to get you in the party mood. And this tart, flavorful shot is the perfect green cocktail to keep the St. Patrick’s Day bash going in between green beer and all the green colored food. These little Lucky Leprechaun Shots were a HUGE hit last year!

Oh, and don’t forget the pot of gold! Dip the shot glass rims in gold sprinkles and you’ll have a sparkly St. Patrick’s Day drink in your hand (or one in each hand, we won’t tell!)

Of course, whiskey isn’t just for the day of green. For different flavor, you’ve got to try this yummy Desert Wasteland Whiskey Cocktail, or go for a more elegant statement with our Wine and Whiskey Cocktail.

The ingredients of the Lucky Leprechaun shot which is Jack Daniel's Whiskey, Sour Apple Schnapps, and golden sprinkles.

    It is not St. Patty’s day . It is St. Paddy’s day. Patrick is a man’s name and in Ireland he is called Paddy. Most Irish do not like it being called St. Patty.
