If you’re a frequent Vegas vacationer, then you’ve already seen people walking along the Strip with yard-long margaritas and all sorts of fun, festive drinks. But the Las Vegas Strip offers so many other drinks you have yet to try.

Here’s our rundown of the latest-and greatest, must-try cocktails. We picked two of our favorites from each venue, just because it’s too difficult to narrow it to one! Bottoms up, ladies and gents.

About The Author

I live for a crazy Vegas adventure, but not in ways you may think. Sure, our nightlife scene is all fun and dandy, but I love discovering all of the city's vegan options, relaxing in hotel rooms and seeing the best concerts - no matter how big or small the crowd may be. Since I've ditched the rain in Seattle two decades ago, I graduated from UNLV and covered Las Vegas entertainment articles for Vegas.com, the LA Times and our very own Total Vegas Blog. When I'm not writing, you'll find me spending time with my husband, toddler and two pets.
