    I like the pina coladas and Lychee martini at Aria.....the bellini at Palazzo but will have to try the raspberry lemon drop.

    Agreed the Bellini's are pretty tasty at Palazzo- it's what I usually get there!

    Not available on casino floor I don't think, but anyone have a Cable Car at Bellagio? Super yummy!

    My favorite at Bellagio is their frozen Bellini's. Cosmopolitan the Cosmo and chocolate martinis. Venetian/Palazzo the Bloody Mary's extra spicy with extra Olives and the frozen mudslides, or Bailey's and coffee. Aria, the frozen mudslides or mojitos, Wynn, I like the lemon drop or chocolate martinis.

    I am pretty much a Vodka drinker. Love the Ciroc flavors. Peach and Green Apple on top of the list right now but pineapple not far behind. Any of those with Sprite. As far as specialty drinks, the Fire In The Hole at Whiskey Down at MGM is always a must at least once a trip.

    Second many of the recommendations on @Evoni's list and will add mojitos at Wynn!

    At night if I want something sweet, I'll get a toasted almond made with milk (usually made with cream).

    Has anyone had a particularly good margarita anywhere?

    Hi everyone

    At the main Strip properties, which are some of the best cocktails to drink whilst playing slots/table games?

    I've heard Cosmo and Wynn are supposed to be very good.

    At the Aria/MGM, where I normally play, I tend to drink beer then move on to strawberry margaritas or pina coladas and then maybe onto a spirit and mixer.

    I like cherry liquor, Martini, but am up for trying anything new. So any recommendations appreciated - I've not drunk much this year, so plan to enjoy some cocktails etc in Vegas next week.

    Have heard people order Mudslides and Miami vices, but not sure what they are.

    Cheers and thanks.

    AWESOME thread- let's make this one the reference for everyone!


    Cosmo - Raspberry lemon drop martini (Casino floor- can get comped)
    - Chocolate Espresso Martini (Talon Room - not sure if Adina moved the service area she covers?)

    Wynn - Sinatra Smash (Sinatra's)

    Bellagio - Cable Car (One of the bars on casino floor- ??haha)

    Mudslides are good for an after dinner drink, as are white russians. I'm also a fan of Moscow mules. Can't go wrong with a plain old vodka soda lemon, either.

    Bloodys are a good way to start the day, or a long island if you are really hanging and need to get your buzz back in a hurry.

    If you like vodka soda with lemon, try it with orange vodka! So good! pretty much all we drink.

    Can anyone guess my recommendation?



    Dirty Shirleys of course! Easy to order and everywhere. Plus, they come with cherries (well, usually) :D

    Yum....3 more sleeps

    Usually not a huge fan of flavored vodkas, but I'll give it a shot!

    It really depends on which casino you're at, because the options and quality vary so much.

    Wynn, Aria, and Cosmo have sparkling wine, which can be nice to sip without going overboard on long sessions. Aria even gives you a strawberry on the rim. Wynn and Cosmo also have acceptable white wine. And who among us doesn't like a coffee with Bailey's now and then?

    For sweet drinks, Cosmopolitan's chocolate martini and cosmo are great. Their mai tai is also pretty good, though it's a total sugar bomb.

    Also love the Bellagio Cocktail at Bellagio. It's different from the frozen Bellini -- think it has passionfruit in it.

    However, I usually tend not to like super-sweet drinks. And I'm more of a "gin rummy" than a vodka drinker. So my current hard booze go-tos are a mojito with no simple syrup added (just rum, lime, mint, splash of soda on rocks) or a negroni. Though not everyone offers mojitos (looking at you, CET properties). And I've gotten blank looks on the negroni front (again, CET, please train your servers).

    Whatever I'm drinking, I order water alongside it. And have to confess, during the day I often get that lowest and most shameful of beverages, nonalcoholic beer. I'm not great at day drinking. And it can be quite refreshing, if you don't think of it as beer.

    I'm visiting vegas for the first time next week. Are the raspberry lemon drops at Cosmo any good? I've seen several posts about them?
