A bottle of Jameson is always a good way to kick start the St. Patrick's Day drinkathon, but at some point, you'll want something more festive and less whiskey. That's where the Shamrock Shot comes into play. The Shamrock relies more on Midori than Irish whiskey and that creates a smooth, sweet, not to sweet shot that even the non-Irish drinker will enjoy.

2 oz Midori melon liqueur
1/2 oz Jameson Whiskey
1/2 oz Carolan's Irish cream liqueur
