With Jello Shots, apparently. 

My housemate forwarded this image along to me. Those are Green Irish Whiskey Jello Shots– WARNING: Contains Alcohol — in the telltale Greenware of the Longworth House office building cafeteria.  I guess I would say they are more like a Jello Cup, than a shot, as they clearly dwarf the festive St. Patrick’s Day cupcakes on an adjacent tray. 

What would I give to have a “spotted” of House members quietly enjoying their whiskey cups?

Acacia has lived in DC since graduating from Vassar College with degrees in English and Italian. She cries daily at the thought of her imminent departure from this beloved city, as she will begin a Fulbright teaching grant in the Campania region, Italy come October. She’ll be blogging that experience too. Get at her: or follow her on twitter.

  1. I still contend that $1.50 for a spiked jello cup is cheap. Way to be economic, feds.
