Hungry's Serves Up Refreshing Summer Cocktails

Perfect for Houston's steamy summers, the Verdita Cocktail from Hungry's.

With two locations in Houston, one in Rice Village and the other on Memorial Drive, Hungry’s has been a local favorite for over 45 years. The robust menu offers a global variety of made from scratch meals and healthy comfort food. For over four decades, Hungry's philosophy has focused on three things: freshness, flavor, and family.

According to Executive Chef and owner Sue Nowamooz, one of the items that will always remain on the seasonally changing menu is the Hungry’s Kabob Plate. “The plate is a fan favorite, and it is perfect for any season, but the combination of grilled beef and chicken kabobs with turmeric roasted veggies taste like summer.” says Nowamooz.

Hungry’s in Rice Village offers plenty of outdoor seating where guests can enjoy weekly lunch and dinner specials, brunch, or meals with the family. Aside from their fresh food, Hungry’s is also known for their delicious hand-crafted cocktails and sizeable drink menu. Sit back and enjoy a drink al fresco or, if you are feeling inspired, take a little bit of Hungry’s home with you and make their summer inspired Verdita Martini.

Hungry’s Verdita Martini

Hydrate while you intoxicate with Hungry’s Verdita Martini. Fresh pressed green juice paired with your favorite spirit makes it the perfect refreshing summer cocktail. You can customize your green juice according to your taste buds, but Hungry’s mixologists prefer Persian cucumbers, fresh pineapple, jalapeno, and herbs from the garden. It tastes wonderful shaken with tequila.


(makes 1-2 martinis) 

6 Persian cucumbers 

2 pineapple spears 

1 cup cilantro 

1 cup mint 

1 jalapeño seeded 

4 oz tequila 


Combine the pineapple, cucumber, jalapeño, mint, and cilantro (to taste) in a blender; puree until smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer, discarding the solids. Chill until serving. Pair the Verdita with 4 oz of good tequila and enjoy.
