We Went Inside the Fire Sauce-Soaked, Influencer-Stocked Taco Bell Hotel in Palm Springs

"Baja Blast, a Mountain Dew soda flavor exclusive to Taco Bell, is the object of a level of cultish devotion second only to Fire Sauce packets. It was, someone tells me, “chemically formulated to taste good with Taco Bell food.” There are Hibiscus-decorated spritzes, Champagne and Baja Blast cocktails served with fresh fruit popsicles, and in special celebration of the 15th anniversary of the product, a Birthday Freeze slushie available only in the hotel’s crinkly-silver-walled Freeze Lounge. (The Freeze Lounge is actually quite warm; everyone is really sweet and apologetic about it.)"
