Party Panache, Lucky Shots

May the luck of the Irish be with ye this week!

 

 

And if you make these lucky shots, your happiness is guaranteed!

 

 

The ingredients are so simple you will do a jig  💃

 

 

Make things extra festive by decorating the shot glasses with a green sparkling sugar rim

 

 

 

Dipping the rims in a little simple syrup {sugar water} makes the decorative sugar stay in place

 

 

Fill ’em up!

 

 

Serve them on a rainbow  🌈

 

 

Add a festive St. Pat’s message  ☘️

 

 

Add a Shamrock Pot for extra luck

 

 

A utensil holder keeps a rainbow of colored pens and pencils at my fingertips

 

 

for sketching a rainbow upon a whim

 

 

A rainbow is sure to put a smile on your face

 

 

and so will a Lucky Shot!

 

 

Lucky Shots

  • Servings: varied
  • Time: 10 minutes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

vanilla ice cream

Bailey’s Irish Creme liqueur

Malibu Caribbean Rum with Coconut liqueur

shot glasses

green or gold sparkling or decorative sugar

2 T sugar

1/4 cup water

Each serving should be 1/3 ice cream, 1/3 Bailey’s, and 1/3 Coconut Rum liqueur

Set out ice cream to soften in a large measuring cup while preparing glasses.

Stir sugar into water and microwave for one minute to dissolve sugar.   Put decorative sugar in a small dish.  Dip rim of glass into sugar water then into decorative sugar, turning to coat.  Repeat until all glasses are coated.

Add equal parts rum and Baileys to ice cream.  Stir until melted.  Pour into shot glasses and serve immediately.  Mixture can be made ahead and stored covered in refrigerated.

 

 

Be careful, it packs a punch!  I don’t want you seeing double!

 

Cheers!

    Green sugared rims on glasses make me happy! How fun! I’ll be signing books with my writer’s group at Arts and Crafts Festival on St. Patrick’s Day and usually head over to McSharry’s for lunch, but this year my hubster won’t be able to be there for lunch, so I’ll dine on Irish fare without him. Maybe I’ll make these when I get home!

    Pretty — and no doubt taste just as good. Do you use a spoon or just drink it? At any rate, looks pretty sinful… and fun!
