The Laguna Champagne bar is conveniently situated just few steps from the main floor of Palazzo’s Casino. The place boasts of several classic signature drinks including Moet and Dom, but its house special, the Flower Eclipse is a huge favourite. Made from a fine mix of St-German, fresh lemon juice and Champagne, the drink is known to water down nerves as you roll dice on the roulette table.
- Buck’s Fizz at Herbs & Rye
Herbs & Rye is an attractive spot for many liqueur drinkers. Renowned for its handmade concoctions, the bar provides a relaxing atmosphere for the most exquisite champagne cocktails. The Buck’s Fizz is one of the favourite cocktails for casino players. It is a blend of orange juice, gin, Champagne and Heering cherry liqueur. What’s more, that chatty bartender can tell you are thing or two about the history of your drink with each delicious sip.
- Henny Black Ops
This vibrant drink was originally served as a specialty at Insert Coins, but the once swanky bar closed due to the rapidly changing DTLV business landscape. Nevertheless, the recipe for its delicious drink is not lost as many casinos still serve the refreshing Henny Black Ops. It is a mixture of Hennessy, black merlot, strawberry puree, fresh strawberry juice and watermelon juice. For a cocktail drink, this one is more loaded with nutritious ingredients.
- Cable Car Martini at Nobhill Tavern
The Cable Car is one of the specialty cocktails at Nobhill Restaurant & Bar. Once voted the best cocktail on the strip, this sweet tasting drink is a breath of fresh air for the parched casino player. The drink has its origins 1996, in the Starlight Room on top of the historic Sir Francis Drake Hotel, San Francisco. The catchphrase for the Starlight Room at the time was “Between the Stars and the Cable Cars”. The drink is made from a concoction of Captain Morgan, orange curacao, and Fresh Sweet and Sour. A real recipe for relaxation at a night out in Las Vegas.
