Float away on this sweet and spicy cocktail from one of Dallas’ chicest bars

In the mood for something sweet, but with a little spicy kick? Then the Mango Cloud at Mercat Bistro is for you.

At this tres chic eatery in the HARWOOD District, general manager David Carlos and his staff take the art of mixing cocktails out from behind the bar and bring it right to your table.

This dreamy pink drink is proof — watch how Carlos concocts it in the video, and if you don’t have any mango cotton candy handy then pay a visit to Mercat Bistro to try it in person.

Transfer the ice and muddled strawberries into a glass, then top with the cotton candy and sprinkle with chili powder.
