Let’s Get the Party Started: Summer Cocktails You Can’t Miss at Tricky Fish!

The weather is heating up, and we’re craving an ice cold beverage on the patio – or by the pool!


When you get a wild hair for amazing handcrafted cocktails on a beautiful evening, don’t forget your friends at Tricky Fish in Richardson, Texas. No we don’t have a pool, but we have a wonderful patio and there is live music every Friday and Saturday night on the green to create a little ambiance while you eat. Drop into Tricky Fish soon and add a few of these handcrafted cocktails in Richardson to your “must try” list:


Honey Badger


Named the most fearless creature in the world, the honey badger is pretty ferocious. And our honey badger cocktail is ferociously delicious! ROXOR gin is one of our favorites, and we mix it up with a little basil and honey for the perfect combination.


Lemon Wedge


Just think of the lemon wedge as our version of an Arnold Palmer, a little lemonade mixed up with sweet tea - the quintessential drinks of summer. Lemoncello, honey, and Black Tea Tito’s vodka compliment each other so perfectly, it’s hard to have just one.


Fire & Ice


Two worlds collide in the Fire & Ice. Fiery jalapeno is balanced perfectly by passion fruit, ginger beer, and a little Tito’s vodka. It sounds weird – but you’ll love it.




Looking for something fruity? Look no further than the Blossom: berry blossom tea, strawberry jam, and Bacardi rum are a match made in berry heaven.


Spring Showers


This is a customer favorite because it’s so light and refreshing and oh so drinkable. Gin, cucumber, lime, and elder flower make the perfect combination.


Ready for summer and cocktails on the patio?! Visit us at Tricky Fish for the best cocktails in Richardson! We’re open for lunch, dinner, happy hour, late night, and weekend brunch.

Product Spotlight: Life is Better With Tito’s Handmade Vodka

At Tricky Fish, we’re southern made and southern proud, and we love supporting other southern businesses that just get us and our philosophy. One such company is fellow Texas native, Tito’s Handmade Vodka.


Founded in Austin, Texas, Tito’s began pretty much by accident. Tito Beveridge was an oil and gas guy, turned mortgage guy, who found a love for making homemade flavored vodka. His interest grew (and the mortgage industry was suffering), so he began learning everything he could about distilling vodka, and through old-fashioned trial and error, Tito’s Handmade Vodka as born.


We all know and love Tito’s because it smooth. Add it to a cocktail or drink it straight, it won’t bite you. Here are a few cocktails at Tricky Fish in Richardson, Texas that feature this delicious Texas craft vodka:


Filthy Pineapple Mule: This one is a favorite – not only because it tastes great – but it also comes in a giant mule mug built for two to share! Experience the flavors of pineapple infused Tito’s vodka and filthy cherries.


Lime in the Coco: Okay…so this is basically a mule! The difference is a little coconut. Experience the delicious flavors of Tito’s, coconut, lime juice, and ginger beer.


Bloody Mary: Join us for brunch and order one of our Tricky Fish Bloody Marys! We use a house mix that has a slight kick to it, then mix in Tito’s and garnish with boiled shrimp. Yum!


Hola Peno Mango Mule: Looking for something different? A little sweet and a little spicy, the Hola Peno Mango Mule features mangos and jalapenos mixed with Tito’s and ginger beer. Yes, it sounds weird but trust us – it’s delicious!


Thirsty yet? Come order your favorite vodka drink at Tricky Fish and be sure to ask for Tito’s Handmade vodka! We’ll save a seat for you at the best new restaurant in Richardson, Texas.

NOLA Benedict

A nod to our Cajun roots, the NOLA Benedict is our take on the breakfast classic. You’ll find everything you love about traditional eggs benedict, laced with Cajun influences like Andouille sausage and a creole mustard hollandaise. Oh – and did we mention its huge?! You won’t go hungry with this dish.


Fried Shrimp & Oyster Grits

Yeah – it sounds weird, but you’ll love this decadent dish! Our grits are amazing (if we do say so ourselves), and somehow the flavors of Shiner Bock BBQ Sauce, corn, grits, cheese, and seafood just seemingly meld in your mouth for a deliciously happy ending. It’s not to be missed!


Praline Pancakes

For those in search of something on the sweeter side, we highly recommend the Praline Pancakes. Light and fluffy pancakes are served with candied pecan praline whiskey syrup and macerated raspberries…you’ll just have to try it to believe how good it is!
