diy project: homemade leprechaun spirits

by Halligan

Saint Patrick’s Day is right around the corner; it will sneak up on you before you know it, so you might want to prepare! The tradition of drinking on the holiday comes from a legend called Patrick Pot. This project honors that tradition. These mini, leprechaun-sized ales are perfect for a St. Patty’s Day get-together or to give as good luck gifts! I used miniature liquors to create this fun favor but to make it kid friendly, limeade is perfect. — Halligan
