Poptails are back at Texican Court in Las Colinas, this time for a worthy cause. “Poptails with a Purpose” will donate a portion of the proceeds from their popular summer drinks to Baylor Scott White Foundation June 1-August 31.

Civic leaders established Baylor Scott & White Irving Foundation in 1977, to raise funds for nonprofit healthcare in Irving. The Foundation’s primary recipient is Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Irving.

Guests of Texican Court, a Valencia Hotel Group property, can make a difference by purchasing one of these three delicious poptails this summer. Fans of the hotel’s social media channels also have an opportunity to nominate a deserving individual to enjoy a two-night Poptail Staycation.

“We are excited to start safely reopening everything and are thrilled to have the opportunity to give back to Irving’s healthcare community,” says Texican Court’s Sales and Marketing Director Brianna Sepulveda. “Texican Court has the space you need to social distance, and we want to extend an invite to everyone to come to enjoy a poptail in either The Two Mules Cantina, patio, or pool.”

The Two Mules Cantina is open for dinner with a limited menu every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 4 to 10 p.m. Indoor seating is open to 50% capacity, with additional outdoor and poolside seating. The pool is open for regular hours, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

If you’d like to bring the party home for your next virtual Happy Hour, these recipes will help you recreate the refreshing Poptails.
