With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, locals will be searching nearby bars and restaurants in hopes of finding vibrant cocktails that match with the holiday’s color scheme. Instead of settling for some mystery green punch, upgrade to the Spellbound. This beautiful concoction doesn’t get its color from dye. Rather, it uses fruits like kiwi and lime to give each sip a sense of freshness. Those flavors are then combined with rum and a house-made simple syrup, making for an easy-to-drink option for your night of celebrating. No one will even think of pinching you with this in hand.
