Boozy Irish Caramel Trifle

by Lynn Lilly, Feb 28 2024

St. Patrick's Day is definitely know for tossing back a few Irish style. A few too many sweet green drinks a few years back on a St. Patrick's Day bachelorette party in Savannah has mellowed my Irish celebrations. If you are like me and want to sip an Irish cocktail and enjoy one of the absolute best boozy trifles (infused with Bailey's and Guinness), I have you covered this St. Patrick's Day!
