We made a splash on this broadcast when we came to you live, poolside, from the crystal clear waters of the Omni Tucson National Resort for Summer of Mango!

Dylan Higgins, Josh Rockwell, Jeff White, Matt Russell, Iron Chef Brian Smith & Chef Jonathan Stutzman

Our celebrity co-host was Dylan Higgins of Breakthru Beverage Group who offered some credentialed recommendations on summertime sipping by the pool. We also welcomed Tucson’s newest Iron Chef, Brian Smith of Maynard’s Market & Kitchen, who offered some reflections on his huge win. Summer of Mango took center stage at this point when we checked in with Omni Tucson’s general manager Jeff White, who walked us through mango mixology and his seasonal cocktail line-up. And there was more where the mango came from, when Omni Tucson’s executive chef Jonathan Stutzman talked about his respect for this summer fruit and how it inspired a range of dishes that we all subsequently sank our teeth into.

One of the ways that the mango plays at the Omni…charred mango hummus!

We particularly loved the way that the Mango Pool Mule paired with the Charred Mango Hummus!

Make some mango moments of your own this summer at the Omni!
