If you want to enjoy the perfect Vegas experience, there’s no doubt you’ll be heading to the Bellagio. As one of the premier casinos in the world, there is so much to offer the keen gambler here. And there’s a good bet you’re going to want to have a few drinks while playing Craps or Blackjack. So, here’s a quick look at some of the cocktails that different bars and poolside bars in the Bellagio offers its guests.
The Manhattan – Lily Bar and Lounge
This is the classic cocktail that we’ve all tried at some point. A taste of New York in a glass. The Manhattan is available in Lily Bar as it would be in most Vegas establishments. The difference is that here it’s served in a massive tulip glass, and they use carved ice cubes as well! If you want to get a taste of home, for a reasonable price, The Manhattan is a cocktail you just can’t go wrong with.
Apple Rocks – The Harvest
The Harvest is a relatively new bar opened up in the Bellagio, so why not pay a visit to see what the fuss is about?! We’d recommend The Apple Rocks as a wonderfully refreshing option for all. Wanna know what’s in this bad boy? Get ready to drool! You’ve got Michter’s Rye Whisky mixed with St. George Spiced Pear Liqueur, Vermont maple syrup, and apple cider! And, as if that’s not enough you’ll also get a large ice cube with a frozen Apple chip inside it! This fruity and delicious cocktail is the perfect start to any Vegas evening.
Sangria – Bellagio Pool Bar
There are plenty of poolside bars in Vegas, as you would expect. And, if you’re staying at The Bellagio you probably want to spend a couple hours in the pool before gambling. So, how about a classic Sangria to go with those beautiful sun rays? If you’ve ever been to Spain, you’ll no doubt have sampled Sangria, but never quite like this. See, here you’ll get to enjoy a choice of white or red wine in your sangria. But you’ll also have Hennessy VS cognac, Cointreau, and cinnamon for extra flavoring. If your mouth isn’t already watering then there’s something wrong with you.
1914 Sidecar – Lily Bar and Lounge
Okay, if you’re a high-roller with some pretty mega bucks you might decide to sample the 1914 Sidecar. What is it? Well, it uses the famed Ferrand Cognac Memoire 1914 (hence the name). This is mixed with Grand Marnier Quintessence liqueur and lemon juice. You’ll be served this unique and extraordinary beverage in a sugar rimmed Martini glass, and it will set you back around four hundred bucks! Might be best to save this one until you’ve had some success at the poker table!
