Jello shots are fun to make, and usually are a favorite feature at parties. There are many holidays that college kids love to get drunk for, and St. Patrick's Day is up there for the best excuse to drink something like Goldschlager. 

For this St. Patricks Day, I gathered a few of my friends to try out these cinnamon Goldschlager (43.5% alcohol/vol) jello shots. They were more than happy to be my test subjects. Consume these with caution. 

These are quick and easy to make, so you can have a good time and a tasty shot. You can make green jello shots, yellow jello shots, or both whatever fits your party's theme best. I also used a Lemon-Lime Gatorade to give the shot a little bit more flavor than just alcohol.
