"Restaurateurs Joseph Gilbert and John Robinson needed a name for the new restaurant they planned to open in the Country Club Plaza of Kansas City, Missouri. To make the job easy, they kept the name of the location’s previous tenant — a clothing store called Houlihan’s Men’s Wear — and opened Houlihan’s Old Place in 1972. This was at the time when T.G.I. Friday’s was popularizing casual dining, so the concept was an instant hit. That early success led to more Houlihan’s opening in other states, and another multi-million dollar chain was born. The Houli Fruit Fizz is a simple blend of fruit juices and Sprite that can be served with a meal or enjoyed on its own. This drink is one of Houlihan’s own classic, signature recipes."
