#ThirstyThursday: The Movie Star

This #ThirstyThursday is being brought to you by Z’Tejas Southwestern Grill. This favorite happy hour spot of mine recently introduced a new drink menu and on it sits The Movie Star. It’s a tasty margarita with an added twist of pineapple and ginger. It is light and crisp, and I guarantee you won’t be able to stop at just one.

If you have never been to Z’Tejas before, I highly recommend ordering some of their Movie Stardelicious food. Everything from the appetizers to their entrees are impeccable and you can’t forget about their homemade corn bread or the delightful cobbler! I have been a Z’Tejas Southwestern Grill customer for years and every experience I’ve had has been wonderful. Everything from the service you’ll receive, the food you will taste, and the drinks you will sip on will have you feeling like The Movie Star you are!
