Every kid needs a fun St Patrick’s day drink. This bubbly drink is perfect to make the kiddos feel extra special and excited about the holiday. I tell my little one fun little stories about drinking this “lucky leprechaun elixir” or key lime float which will help them see evidence of the leprechauns. I then place little green footprints on bathroom counters, and pots of gold under the bed. They get such a hoot out of it and I love that.
