Luxury Cocktails of Las Vegas

High Roller Martini
The Capital Grille, Las Vegas
This pinstripe restaurant chain boasts a $1000 martini for each of its 27 locales, each paired with a different piece of Lagos jewelry. The Gotham Martini comes with a strand of pearls; The High Roller, named for the Vegas Strip, includes a diamond pave ring. For each cocktail sold, about $500 goes to Share our Strength, a charity that battles hunger around the globe.
(Capital Grille)

For the perfect Ménage a Trois, Cristal Rosé, Hennessy Ellipse and Grand Marnier Cent-cinquantenaire are combined with 23-karat gold flakes and liquid gold syrup. At Tryst, the $3,000 libation is sipped through a golden straw studded with a 9-point diamond -- yours to keep.

The quaff of royals? At $1,000 a drink, quite possibly. BOA's King Richard's Pride consists of Hennessy Richard, Dom Perignon Rosé 1996 and Chambord Liqueur Royale de France, splashes of lime and cranberry juices and one orange slice, all served in a keepsake Baccarat cocktail glass. Find it, fittingly, at the Forum Shops at Caesars.

Extreme Vegas Cocktails

Like most things in over-the-top Las Vegas, the cocktails are a phenomenon that other cities would find tough to match. Fresh from Frankenstein's laboratory -- make that Quark's Bar at the Las Vegas Hilton -- comes the Warp Core Breach. The $29.50 drink has enough punch to tank two grown men with 10 ounces of liquor from five different-flavored rums, Razzmatazz and fruit juices. And be sure to heed the waiter's warning: Do not dip your fingers into the drink. The ice used to chill it is the dry kind that comes with lots of bite.

How fun is this? Take one of your favorite drinks, add some fruitiness and then add one of your favorite candies to munch on while you drink. Obviously, the Gummi Bear Margarita includes Gummi Bears, which are mixed within the ice, but it also features a fantastic flavored tequila, Voodoo Tiki Blue Dragon, a blue raspberry and kiwi infused tequila. Because Gummi Bears don’t look as good blended or just laying around, this particular Margarita is best served on the rocks with the bears mixed up with the ice.

* 1 1/2 oz Voodoo Tiki Blue Dragon Tequila
* 1 oz Watermelon Pucker
* 1/2 oz triple sec
* 1 oz sour mix
* 1 oz cranberry juice
* dash of grenadine
* sugar for rimming
* Gummi Bears for garnish


1. Rim a chilled margarita glass with sugar, fill with ice and Gummi Bears.
2. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice.
3. Shake well.
4. Strain into the prepared glass.

Steve Wynn presents Encore!

The $2.3 billion Encore will open Dec. 22 in the middle of what many have called the worst economic crisis ever to hit the Strip and the gaming industry. I say balderdash! Everything will work itself out and Encore will shine like a brand new copper penny. If anyone knows the casino business its Steve Wynn, and he knows that we will be just fine. I am looking forward to staying in one of the beautifully appointed suites with brand new beds and fine linens. To me that is worth the $320.00 per night mid week rate. See you on the red carpet...
