RA Sushi Bar & Restaurant is ringing in the start of the warmer months with a cocktail and entrée pairing that is a perfect refresher for hot summer days. A cool combo inspired by backyard picnics and lazy day lounging, the Watermelon Kiwi Shrimp and Watermelon Margarita are available at any of RA Sushi’s two Houston locations from June 1-July 31, 2013. Take a bite out of summer with the Watermelon Kiwi Shrimp entrée. It’s a light, fruity dish made with layers of watermelon, kiwi, orange slices, and lychee, topped with shrimp. Cool off with the refreshing Watermelon Margarita; Patron Silver tequila and Cointreau orange liqueur are muddled with fresh watermelon and lime juice, then topped with a float of Grand Marnier. The Summer Pairing is available from June 1-July 31 for $18 ($10 for the entrée and $8 for the cocktail). Try the Watermelon Kiwi Shrimp and Watermelon Margarita at any RA Sushi location.
