Those NASCAR racers won’t be driving 55 and neither should you. Cabo Wabo Cantina at the Miracle Mile Shops is featuring the Can’t Drive 55, a blend of Cabo Wabo blanco tequila, Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum, vodka, gin, four fruit juices and a touch of amaretto Disaronno for $15. It’ll be available all weekend, as will beer buckets and shot specials. And on Thursday, you can quaff while watching the Hauler Parade from Cabo Wabo’s Strip-side patio.
The signature Mr. Tang cocktail of the MGM Grand’s new high-end Chinese restaurant China Tang, named after its founder Sir David Tang, is a play on the 19th-century Improved Brandy Cocktail.
This Hell’s Kitchen cocktail, while in the Manhattan family, is actually a cross between a Little Italy and a Paper Plane that is smoked for good measure. While few of us have a proper smoking box lying around the house, enjoying a Smoke on the Boulevard cocktail near a campfire, fireplace or wood-burning stove and passing the glass through the smoke might tide you over until you can score a reservation at Gordon Ramsay’s new Caesars Palace hot spot.
