My kids love to drink fancy drinks. So I’ve started making them and sharing them with you. I also make an adult version for fun drinks for my husband and myself.  It’s totally not helping my diet to be making and drinking these though. LOL Here’s some of the recipes I made for yummy St. Patrick’s Day drinks.
