"French fries in cones?"

"No, no french fries. Roasted potatoes."

"And what have you got to drink?"

"Well, we have this watermelon smoothie that I love. We put black tapioca balls in it -- you know, like you get in bubble tea, so they look like the watermelon seeds. And then we put a collar of Midori around the top to look like the rind."

"Anything with rum?"

"Yeah, I'm finally getting into cocktails. I know I'm a little late."

"What's your best cocktail?"

"You know, there used to be fig orchards in the Fourth and Fifth Ward back in the day. Figs were huge in Houston. So we're making our own fig liqueur and then mixing it with Gosling's rum and ginger beer. It's called a fig tree."
