New summer cocktails at Second Floor at Galleria Dallas, plus Omni Hotels
One of them is a prickly-pear margarita!
Summer cocktails are coming in via press release:
Second Floor has a trio of cocktails for the summer, one of which is -- potentially -- the best cocktail known to mankind: the prickly-pear margarita. The three cocktails are:
- French Tea, with iced tea, Charbay Meyer Lemon, Chambord, mint, and lemon
- Prickly Pear Margarita with Jose Cuervo tequila, lime juice, Cointreau, and prickly pear puree. All over that.
- Skinny Segundo with Lillet Blanc, pomegranate juice, Herradura and Cava
Omni Hotels & Resorts
Omni has regionally-inspired drinks for four regions across the U.S., and one of those four regions is "Texas."
The cocktails for the Texas Region are: Stoli Corona, Watermelon Lime Sangria, Grilled Pineapple Cocktail, Lemon Tea Smash, and Skinny Chipotle Margarita.
Drinks for other regions we do not get include Elderflower Champagne Collins, Long Island Sound, Ginger Blossom Pick, Skinny Grapefruit Tequila Spritzer, and Blood Orange Collins.
Omni is trying to sell its summer program as "sustainable," as follows:
"In addition to signature regional cocktails, guests can beat the heat with Keeper Springs natural spring water. Keeper Springs donates 100% of its profits back to local waterway restoration projects. Omni Hotels & Resorts is partnering with Keeper Springs to provide an additional 5-cent donation for every bottle sold to Waterkeeper Alliance, a global environmental movement uniting nearly 200 Waterkeeper organizations around the world and focusing citizen advocacy on the issues that affect waterways from pollution to climate change."
Here's a better idea for a sustainable water product: Drink it from the tap.
