Its color is not inherently green, despite what the name might suggest, but the name often evokes a sense of playfulness and perhaps a reference to the fictional character from the Spider-Man franchise. This drink is typically served in a cocktail glass that allows its bright and refreshing flavors to shine through. It's a simple mix that tends to be favored for its balance of sweet and strong elements, creating a beverage that's both easy to make and enjoyable to sip.
