The Spa at RnR

Since there's really no better accessory than a cocktail in your hand, each week brings you a tasty adult beverage from one of our favorite drinking establishments, complete with a recipe.

This week: The Spa at RnR

With two stories dedicated to patio drinking, flat-screen TVs, and plenty of grub, Old Town Scottsdale's RnR is Sports Bar Paradise.

And who says you have to drink beer and watch sports at a sports bar? RnR's signature drink menu encourages bar-goers to choose one of its concoctions to sip while people watching. The Spa is basically a mojito that's good for your heart (kind of). Instead of rum, The drink uses Veev Acai Liqueur, giving you superfood health benefits and a buzz.

(Recipe after the jump.)

Ingredients: 1 oz. Veev Acai Liqueur 1/4 oz. lime juice 1/4 oz. simple syrup 5 mint leaves 5 fresh cucumber slices spash soda

In a pint glass muddle mint, cucs, simple syrup and lime juice. Add liqueur and ice and shake well. Top off with soda water. Tell a friend they're on mint- in- teeth watch.
