Omni Hotels & Resorts, headquarted in Texas, created the Flying Squirrel cocktail in honor of the 2012 Olympic games. The resort chain, which has 47 properties in North America, emailed the recipe to Patch in response to last week's summer cocktail recipe for an Ouzo Special.
The Flying Squirrel is being served at all Omni properties through the remainder of the games.
