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.

Cool off with these poptails through the end of August.

Mexican Candy Poptail ($10): Silver Tequila, watermelon liquor, Sprite, hot sauce, mango or lime popsicle, Tajin rim

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
