Updated February 22, 2018 - 4:00 pm

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. If you order it at the restaurant, dry ice is used to aerate a mix of Chinese botanicals in the serving base.


■ 1 1/2 ounces Remy Martin XO

■ 3/4 ounce Cointreau Noir

■ 1/4 ounce Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur

■ 2 bar spoons Frey Ranch Absinthe


Stir ingredients in mixing glass with ice. Strain into brandy snifter.

Dear Penny: Do I really have to tip 20% at a buffet?!

To answer this common question, we have to shift the way we understand tipping. The reason we tip is not to offer a thank-you or a reward to service workers for an outstanding or even sufficient job.
