I'm hosting a St. Patty's day party this year and cannot wait to make and try all these yummy green cocktails!! A friend of mine also told me about a liqueur made by TY KU, it is already green in color so all you have to do is mix it with Sprite or Ginger Ale and your set! Just another idea! Thanks so much for these recipes!
