Las Vegas' Signature Drinks

Written by Tiffany Milligan – A Vegas Local

“Jack and Coke, please," requests a very conservative 58-year-old Bernice.

“You’re in Vegas. Want to try again? Maybe you could push the envelope just a little bit? You know, venture out and order something a little more, uh, I dunno, fun?” refutes the bartender resembling Tom Cruise.

A nervous Bernice orders a watermelon juice and vodka at his recommendation. “Wow! This sh** is the BOMB!” Bernice spews out, remembering the words of her grandson.

Drinks in Vegas can be your standard or your exception! Every bartender has a drink they’ve either created or altered…and most of these drinks are DELICIOUS! Generally, they haven’t named the drinks BUT rest assured that if you describe the way you like your libations for any Las Vegas bartender, they will come up with something that will KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF! If you’re the type that likes to be prepared, here are a few alcoholic beverages that us Vegas locals love.

Twisted Mojito – mojito with whatever flavor you request, added in the form of a flavored vodka.

Margarita by the yard – a plastic cylindrical container, complete with neck strap, which you MUST get just for fun while on Fremont Street.

Watermelon Vodka Martini – found at the Aria and made with fresh watermelon juice!

AMF – Adios Mother BEEP! Yep, a favorite in these here parts because it is tasty and gets the job done…quickly!

Scorpion – We ARE in the desert so it only makes since this would be a favorite Las Vegas drink… fruity and spiked with rums, gin and vodka!

Desert Sunrise - vodka, orange juice, pineapple juice and grenadine syrup makes for a great start to any day.
