Smashin’ Passion Cocktail Recipe

Raise a glass to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day a wee early (since it falls on a Tuesday this year) or embrace the spring in the air by mixing up a refreshing and fruity cocktail that is decidedly not green.

Just a few simple ingredients create this beautifully balanced refreshment, notes its creator, mixologist Kathy Casey, who contributed this to Drinks magazine. Bacardi Limón rum is a great example of a flavored spirit that mixes with sophisticated flair. Cheers!
