Tommy Bahama at Town Square Las Vegas Unveils Fall/Winter Collection for "Drink of the Month"

Guests have a brand new special cocktail to experience every month at Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bar at Town Square Las Vegas where "Life is One Long Weekend." Tommy Bahama is unveiling its fall/winter collection of cocktails. The price: $10 to $11, a great value for ultra premium rum mixed with seasonal fruits and juices.

The cocktails are created by Tommy Bahama bartenders from their 12 restaurant locations spanning the country and are inspired by only the freshest, seasonal ingredients then crafted with the Tommy Bahama-island flare. Every month, they create their own specialty cocktail and one is selected to be served at all 12 Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bars across the country.

“It’s a great job when we just have to sit around and sample all of these signature cocktails and go through the process of selecting just one,” says Rob Goldberg, senior vice president of restaurants, Tommy Bahama. “We have a great group of bartenders who have been with us for years and understand what our guests want and at which time of the year.”

The fall/winter collection through end of Jan. is as follows:

Kiwi-tini (Created in Sandestin, Fla.)
2 parts Tommy Bahama White Sand Rum®
