Fifty Casino – UK
Another entry from the UK is the famous Fifty Casino. It was one of the oldest and most famous casinos in London. It is shut down now after several big wins forced closure, but we believe the impact and history of this casino make it worthy of our list.

A Vesper Martini is, essentially, a drink made up by James Bond. Upon sharing a drink with Vesper Lynd in ‘Casino Royale,’ Bond says ‘I think I’ll name that a Vesper Martini…because once you’ve had a sip, it’s all you want to drink’. The Vesper Martini is dry and bitter, and not for the faint hearted. If you want to make your own Vesper Martini at home, here’s what you need:
10ml Dry Vermouth
30ml Dry Gin
To make a Vesper Martini…
First, fill a cocktail shaker with some ice- lightly crush this if you want to, but it’s all about personal preference here! Then add the gin, vodka, and vermouth to the shaker and shake it all together vigorously until the drink is nice and cold. Strain the drink into a cocktail glass and then grate some lemon peel over the surface of the drink as a classic garnish. Enjoy straight away!

To make a Capone Cocktail, you will need the following…

Lady Luck is a very sophisticated cocktail that tastes very similar to champagne. Just like champagne, it’s appropriate to drink a Lady Luck cocktail in celebration of something; for example, a big win at the casino. With fruity flavors and a delicate fizz, there’s no denying that Lady Luck is more of a feminine beverage, which makes it ideal for girls nights in as well as on nights out. If you want to make your own Lady Luck cocktail at home, here’s what you need:
0.5 oz of Pear Liqueur
0.5oz of Armagnac
Put some slightly crushed ice into a mixing glass and pour in both the pear liqueur and Armagnac. Stir the drink, don’t shake it, and let it chill. Then strain the drink into a Champagne flute. Add a little champagne to the mixture to top it up and then use a slice of pear as a garnish to bring out the pear flavors within the drink. Serve and enjoy!

The Vegas experience is not just about finding luck on the tables and indulging in the finest cuisine. It’s also about cutting loose and relaxing as much as you can. And the only way to fully relax and unwind Vegas-style is with a cocktail in hand. That said, there are plenty of cocktail bars and drinks to take advantage of, all across Vegas. So, how do you know where to begin?
Well, the best thing to do is to make sure you choose a wonderful bar with a splendid selection of cocktails to choose from. A place you could while away the time sampling several of the fantastic beverages from the menu. This is why you should choose the Wynn as the ideal Vegas hotel and casino for you. Here are some of the places you can find sensational cocktails at Wynn.
Encore Beach Club
If you’re lucky enough to check out and experience the Encore Beach Club, you’re in for a treat. You’ll be able to catch up on some much-needed rest and recuperation, and plenty of cocktails too! There are five main ones to choose from her, including Cucumber Water, Peach and Blue, Melon Berry Smash, and Belvedere Mango Passion. But, we have to confess, our personal favourite has got to be White Strawberry Lemonade. The name alone is enough to make the mouth water, and the combination of SKYY Infusions Wild Strawberry Vodka, with elderflower liqueur, strawberries, and lemonade, makes this a potent concoction. Make sure you are sensible, you could drink five of these without even feeling like you’re drinking any alcohol at all!
Parasol Up Bar
Parasol Up Bar is one-half of the innovative design Wynn has gone with for their hotel and casino. The top half has the wonderful decor, along with bright lights and curtains. This really makes it a vibrant and shining show-piece in the middle of Vegas. Oh, and the drinks aren’t half bad either! There’s the cognac-based Hardy Perfection, and we definitely suggest you try Lake of Dreams as well! Some of the signature drinks you can sample while enjoying the breathtaking views include The Carousel, The Pear-A-Sol, and Lime in the Coconut. You might find cocktails here ever so slightly more expensive than in other establishments. But you’re paying for the view and experience as well as the drinks.
Tower Suite Bar
Another of the great bars at Wynn is the Tower Suite Bar, and it’s a place you simply must check out. The bar specialises in cocktails and has developed a reputation as one of the best cocktail bars in all of Vegas. The Dream lives up to its name, as a delectable amend unforgettable champagne-based cocktail. You should also make sure you check out the $16 Berry Lemonade as well. There is so much to choose from here, and the bar has a wonderful atmosphere; so you’ll be back again and again.

If you’re in Las Vegas, it’s a good bet you’re getting your gamble on, and you could probably do with some refreshments, right?! The great thing about Vegas hotels and casinos is that they have everything you could ever need, so you never need to sort foot outside. So, when you’re looking for the perfect, refreshing beverage to invigorate that gambling brain, you need not look very hard.
The Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino is one of the popular choices for gamblers staying in Vegas. This is due to its wonderful architecture, the brilliant entertainment, and the wonderful selection of food and drinks on offer. Take a look at their cocktail menu and make a choice. There are three main establishments you might want to check out, the All-American Bar & Grill, Voodoo Steakhouse, and iBar Ultra Lounge.
All-American Bar & Grill
Many punters decide to go here and get some food, but you might just decide on a few drinks. Luckily, All-American Bar & Grill is something that offers both in abundance. The food, as you might imagine, is perfect for food lovers, but there is also a wonderful and expansive drinks menu. There are eight signature cocktails to choose from, including Cable Car Martini, Kiss From Mexico, and the classic Manhattan. For a price range of $11-14, you can enjoy delicious and affordable cocktails in this great restaurant.
The upscale VooDoo Steakhouse is the go-to dinner joint for those visiting the Rio in Vegas. But, after dinner, you may wish to head up to the VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub. Here you will find a selection of over 40 speciality drinks to choose from. But, the Love Potion has gotten rave reviews from guests. Our personal recommendation, however, would be the Witch Doctor. This is a deliciously powerful, rum-based cocktail that is certainly not for the faint of heart. The perfect way to cap off a delicious meal and a successful day on the tables! Happy boozing!
iBar Ultra Lounge
Sometimes you want a bar as opposed to a restaurant, and that’s why you may choose to check out the iBar Ultra Lounge. It’s one of the great bars in Vegas and allows you to have a great experience. You can play games, watch TV and make drinks orders from a comfortable booth. There are a lot of drinks on offer to recommend, but, the general consensus is that you should check out the Amaro Kiss and the Nevada Rose. However, our personal favourite has got to be the wonderfully named Pineapple Upside-Down!

Monte Carlo is one of the most exquisite gambling holiday destinations, with beautiful scenery, luxurious and historic architecture and a sophisticated atmosphere. It’s self titled cocktail is much the same sort of experience. Whilst a trip to Monte Carlo to get a taste of one of the world’s most famous casinos may not always be affordable to you, a taste of Monte Carlo in the form of a delicious cocktail most certainly is. Bring a little piece of Monte Carlo to your own front door with this simple recipe!
To create one Monte Carlo Cocktail you will need the following:
– Two dashes of Angostura bitters (this can be altered to personal preference but this is the original)
– 2.25 oz of rye whisky
– 0.5 oz of Benedictine
– A small amount of ice
– A cherry
Prior to making the cocktail, place a martini glass in the fridge or the freezer for just a few minutes to chill it. Whilst this is happening, you can create your cocktail.
Put the rye whisky, Benedictine and Angostura bitters into a cocktail mixer and then fill to the top with ice. Shake this up thoroughly for between 30 and 60 seconds. Strain the drink into your pre prepared chilled cocktail glass and garnish with the cherry. Serve straight away with a flourish or enjoy it yourself. If you don’t fancy going out to a casino to enjoy this drink, why not make it at home and enjoy it while playing a game online of bitcoin dice?
