Secret speakeasy in downtown Las Vegas serves specialty drinks — VIDEO

The Tam-Tam is part of the new cocktail menu at The Laundry Room, the private, reservation-only back room of Fremont Street’s Commonwealth. It tastes a bit like a spicy margarita mellowed out by a touch of cocoa, with burnt cloves adding a seasonal fragrance.


■ 1 1/4 ounces Fortaleza Blanco Tequila

■ 3/4 ounce Vedrenne Creme de Cacao

■ 3/4 ounce Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur

■ 3/4 ounce lime juice

■ 1/2 ounce simple syrup

■ 3-4 dashes Scrappy’s Chocolate Bitters

■ 1 dash Scrappy’s Firewater Bitters

■ 1 pinch salt


■ Lime slice

■ Cloves


Mix all ingredients and shake with ice. Strain into glass over ice. Insert three cloves into lime, garnish glass and light cloves on fire.
