The South Point has created cocktails to celebrate Sunday’s Cup series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The Blueberry Shine Mint Julep is made with a whiskey from City Lights Shine, a Las Vegas distillery co-owned by NASCAR driver Brendan Gaughan. It’s topped with an edible caramel straw but can be sipped though paper, plastic or metal alternatives.
■ 1½ ounces City Lights Blueberry Shine
■ 1 ounce simple syrup
■ 6 blueberries
■ Fresh mint
■ Caramel straw
Muddle blueberries in a highball glass. Add blueberry shine, simple syrup and ice. Shake and pour back into glass. Top with fresh mint sprig, blueberries and caramel straw.
