Vegas-themed cocktail recipes

 

Here are the two Vegas-themed cocktail recipes, which our mixologist will create during the Saturday Night Dance Party:


Desert Heat

1.5 oz     Vodka (Substitute Grapefruit Vodka for Additional Flavor)
1.5 oz     Lime Juice
.75 oz     Grapefruit Juice
.50 oz     Cranberry Juice
.50 oz     Simple Syrup
1-3 pcs  Jalapeño Rings

Add all ingredients into a shaker tin filled with ice.  Shake for 10 seconds or until well blended.  Strain into a martini or stemmed glass.  Float a jalapeño ring for garnish.

To make this alcohol-free, replace the vodka with soda water, grapefruit-flavored soda water, or grapefruit soda.

 

 

Neon Cowboy

2.0 oz     Bourbon
.50 oz     Honey Syrup (recipe below)
.75 oz     Lemon Juice
.75 oz     Pineapple Juice
2 dshs    Angostura Bitters*
2 pcs      Raw Ginger Slices*

*Optional 

If you want to bring ginger into your drink, drop it in a shaker tin with the honey syrup and muddle.  Add the remaining ingredients to the tin and shake for 10 seconds, or until well blended.  Strain into a lowball glass with ice or a large cube.  Garnish with candied ginger or a pineapple wedge.

To make this alcohol-free, replace the bourbon with 3 oz of ginger beer.

Honey Syrup - Mix one part honey to one part hot water in a sealable jar.  Shake until blended.  For sweeter syrup, mix two parts honey, to one part water.
