For those of you still holding on to what little bit of summer we still have, which isn’t hard since most days are still hitting 90 degrees outside, here is a #ThirstyThursday drink for you!

I was recently catching up with a friend at one of our favorite Scottsdale hotspots, Kelly’s at SouthBridge, and we were craving pina coladas, but unfortunately Kelly’s does not have the equipment to make those. That’s when the bartender came to our rescue and asked if we trust her enough to make us a delicious drink. We obliged and were quite impressed when she handed over Kelly’s signature drink, the Strawberry Shamrock. It’s super tasty and I think the only word that really describes it is refreshing. If you’re not ready to completely give yourself to the changing seasons, I highly recommend heading over to Kelly’s at SouthBridge and order the drink that will have you craving for spring.
