Hey Bartender

Hey Bartender
by Chris Murphy

We love our local spirits and our local produce and we love it them even more when they are all blended together for some refreshment on a summer day. Our friends at Do Good are teaming up with bartenders in our area to create some new signature drinks. Our first handcrafted creation comes form the crew at Rivets American Grill, where the entire place looks like it has handcrafted. General Manager Clint Shaw and Jeanine Winters have been doing a lot of research and decided to pair Do Good 3 Mile Rum, Fresh Watermelon and Fresh Mint.
This is so very tasty, just enough sweet to taste fantastic but not too sugary. A full lime and simple syrup round out this creation that they call the “Jolly Do Good”

Don’t take our word for it, head to Rivets order one up. You can also find Do Good 3 Mile Rum at local retailers and you can purchase directly at their distillery at
