Cocktails With A Twist: Enduring Classics get Supercharged

Revelers have enjoyed classic cocktails for ages. But sometimes, a new twist on a classic is a welcome change. Come explore with us some of the new riffs Caesars Entertainment mixologists have put on these timeless drinks.

Five specialty cocktails that are inventive and bold

cocktail from Bound at The Cromwell

No.1 Frontiersman

Bound, The Cromwell

Who doesn’t love an Old Fashioned? Bound explores a new aspect of the classic in the Frontiersman, adding Amaro Montenegro and Drambuie to Bulleit rye whiskey. The result is an herbal, more floral spin on the original.

Bourbon Smash cocktail

No. 2 Bourbon SMASH


Historically, this classic combines bourbon with simple syrup, mint and lemon. At Alto Bar, Maker’s Mark Cask Strength bourbon intertwines with Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur, almond syrup, lime juice, marmalade and egg white, elevating the cocktail’s complexity.

cocktail from Paris Las Vegas

No. 3 Cinna-Raisin Sidecar

Le Central, Paris Las Vegas

The traditional orange of a sidecar is forsaken for raisin undertones from Osborne Pedro Ximenez 1827 sherry and cinnamon-raisin honey syrup mingled with Hennessy V.S Cognac, reflecting the flavors of the holiday season.


No. 4 Mr. Tasty’s Blackberry Mojito

Montecristo Cigar Bar, Caesars Palace

Mr. Tasty is on to something. Stacking the strawberry and dragon-fruit flavors from Bacardi Dragon Berry rum with blackberries, he delivers his fruity take on the traditionally mint-centric mojito.

Giada cocktail

No. 5. Barbarella

GIADA, The Cromwell

Giada De Laurentiis uses Crabbie’s Spiced Orange ginger beer and basil foam in her Tanqueray No. TEN gin based drink, foregoing the traditional vodka route while adding the garden-fresh flavor of basil.
