If you’re looking for an easy way to get the St. Patrick’s Day party started, look no further than these Irish coffee inspired Jell-O shots, featuring layers of Kahlúa-spiked coffee, Baileys Irish cream, and Irish whiskey. We also included a bit of pecan liqueur (because it’s delicious), but feel free to replace it with an additional 1/4-cup Baileys.
