RA Sushi Serves Refreshing Watermelon-Kiwi Special to Kick Off Summer

ATLANTA -- RA Sushi Bar Restaurant is kicking off the warm weather months with a cocktail and entrée combo that tastes like a big bite of summer. Inspired by backyard picnics and lazy day lounging, the Watermelon Kiwi Shrimp and Melon-Kiwi-Tini is the perfect summer refresher. The June pairing is available at RA Sushi in Midtown from June 1-30, 2012.

The Watermelon Kiwi Shrimp is almost too pretty to eat….well, almost. It’s a light, colorful dish made with layers of watermelon, kiwi, orange slices, and lychee, topped with shrimp. Beat the summer heat with the Melon-Kiwi-Tini. Monin Watermelon, Svedka Citron, Shochu, and a splash of citrus soda are muddled together and then served with a garnish of watermelon and kiwi slices. The June pairing is available for $18.
