The Breakdown

0-3 points Eternally Exotic
You have a taste for the exotic. Foreign lands, exotic people, and bold colors move you. Treat yourself to a shot of tequila at TACOS & TEQUILA AT MORONGO CASINO, RESORT & SPA. Savor the Eastern kick of fine sake at The Venue Sushi Bar and Sake Lounge. Embrace the juiciness of summer fruit with flavorful sangria. JAKE’S PALM SPRINGS’ white sangria packs a powerful punch, as does its fruity cactus pear margarita. You’ll absolutely melt when you sip the peach sangria at TROPICALE CORAL SEAS LOUNGE.

The Tropicale Restaurant and Coral Seas Lounge  330 E. Amado Rd., Palm Springs. 760-866-1952.
Tacos & Tequila, Morongo Casino, Resort & Spa 49500 Seminole Dr., Cabazon. 951-849-3080.

4-7 points Bubbly Beer
Friends and family members know you as the life of the party. You love the camaraderie of meeting new people and spending time with familiar faces.  Try a beer at BABE’S BAR-B-QUE & BREWHOUSE.

Babe’s Bar-B-Que & Brewhouse 71800 Hwy. 111  Rancho Mirage. 760-346-8738.

8-13 points Especially Specialty
Quirky, original, and eccentric, you walk to the beat of your own drummer. Try the Pineapple Express from YARD HOUSE RANCHO MIRAGE. Your tastebuds will revel in tropical flavors of pineapple rum, vodka, mint, and you guessed it – fresh pineapple. Next, head over to LULU CALIFORNIA BISTRO for the Banana Split Martini. This sinful treat delights with vanilla vodka, Godiva white chocolate, and crème de banana. Cap off your evening of bar-hopping at Palm Springs’ newest hipster haven, CLINIC BAR.

14-19 points Classy Cocktail
The Rat Pack is your spirit animal. You thrive in environments that are high brow, fashionable, and chic. Enjoy a top-shelf drink, like an aged single-malt Scotch and soda at MASTRO’S STEAKHOUSE. Or, sip your favorite libation at PURPLE PALM RESTAURANT in the Colony Palms Hotel. The violet setting is perfect for royalty — order a Bloody Mary and relax in style.  

Mastro’s Steakhouse 73445 El Paseo, #120, Palm Desert. 760-776-6777.
Purple Palm Restaurant at Colony Palms Hotel 572 N. Indian Canyon Dr., Palm Springs. 760-969-1818.
