“Morehead City is a little fishing town on the North Carolina coast. The Arendell Room is a shotgun-style bar, kind of like what you’d see in San Francisco or New York, but we’ve incorporated backlit Ball jars behind all our bottles to give an underwater look. We use only fresh-squeezed juices, and of course, fresh fruit and herbs. The inspiration for this drink came from Bogue Sound watermelon.
