Texican Court, the retro-feeling hotel that opened this past year in Las Colinas, is giving us something to sweeten the sting of the hot summer days barreling at us — poptails. It's not a new concept, but they're giving it a little "Texican" twist by making them a little more interesting.
They'll have three options for us — Mexican Candy, Mellow Yellow and Pineapple Breeze — but we're kind of loco for the Mexican Candy Poptail. Tequila (obvi), watermelon and Sprite are punched up with some hot sauce and a Tajin rim. (Just because it's hot outside doesn't mean our mouths can't be on fire.) To temper the cocktail back down, you can take a lick of the mango or lime Pop Factory popsicle stuck right in it. Ay Dios mío, what sweet relief.
