What happens in Vegas…

February 17, 2009

…definitely stays in Vegas — unless we are talking about cocktails. I’ve been in town since Thursday, and while there have been many highlights — Paul Oakenfold, Cirque du Soleil, the Center Bar at the Hard Rock Hotel (above) — these cocktails deserve an honorable mention. So let’s get to it.

Mango Tamarind Martini at Tao in The Venetian: Finlandia Mango, Cranberry Juice, and tamarind

Stoli Doli at Capital Grille: Stoli vodka infused with Dole pineapples for 10 days – a new American classic

Black Rabbit at Okada in Wynn: Takara Shochu (Japanese rice vodka), passion fruit juice, and grenadine

Pom Sangria at Okada in Wynn: Ichinokura sake, vodka, pomegranate juice, and sprite

Momo Punch at Pearl in the MGM Grand: Bacardi rum, Hakasatura sake, coconut milk, and angostura bitters
