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.
