Mini Pot of Gold Shooters

Finding a pot of gold is all well and good, but we at Celebrations would much rather find a bunch of delicious cocktails at the end of a rainbow.

While indulging in some buttercream frosted shamrock cookies from Cheryl's we were looking for the perfect festive sip to complement these sweet treats. Although we're not expecting to run into leprechauns or four-leaf clovers any time soon (those are particularly hard to find in New York City), we'll treat ourselves to some tasty Mini Pot of Gold Shooters in the meantime. These are ridiculously simple to make, and go down smoother than a leprechaun speaking Irish.

We reused our mini cauldrons from Halloween, and topped the shots with whipped cream and cute gold sprinkles. If you're feeling lucky, grab your friends and make these tasty shooters for everyone to enjoy. 



  • 9 ounces Kahlua
  • 9 ounces Bailey's Irish Cream
  • Whipped Cream
  • Gold sprinkles, for garnish

Set out 6 double shot glasses, or 6 mini cauldrons. Pour about 1.5 ounces (a traditional shot) of Kahlua into a mini cauldron or double shot glass, and top with 1.5 ounces of Bailey's. Continue with the rest of the shot glasses. 

Top with whipped cream and gold sprinkles.

Serve, shoot and enjoy! 

Makes: About 6 shots
