Orange Crush 

a rustic steakhouse in Texas, with wooden interiors reflecting a warm, inviting ambiance. On a sturdy wooden table, there's a carefully crafted cocktail, its glass glistening with condensation. The cocktail is vibrant, perhaps a classic margarita with a salted rim, garnished with a slice of lime. The background is filled with the subtle buzz of a busy steakhouse: wooden chairs, dim lighting, and perhaps glimpses of other diners enjoying their meals. The focus, however, remains on the cocktail, capturing the essence of a relaxing evening in a Texan steakhouse.
