Make Your 2020 a Year to Remember with These 5 Awesome Cocktails
It’s a new year, and that means it’s time to make some new goals. It’s always great to start the year with a commitment to doing some good for yourself but we’re going to take a step away from the standard health and self-improvement resolutions and suggest you make your goals for the new year a little more enticing.
At Clique Bar & Lounge, we’d like to help make 2020 a year to remember, and what better way to do this than by providing you with the most amazing cocktails in all of Las Vegas? We know our cocktail menu is so tempting it can be hard to choose, so we’ve narrowed the list down for you a bit. Here are 5 cocktails from Clique Bar & Lounge that you’re not going to want to miss out on this year.
The name sounds a little ominous but you’d be surprised just how smooth this concoction is – considering it’s named after one of history’s most fearsome pirates known for his thick black beard and intimidating appearance. You don’t have to take to the sea to experience Blackbeard’s Delight – in fact, you can find it on the cocktail menu at Clique Bar & Lounge.
Blackbeard’s Delight is crafted using Bulleit Bourbon, which is known for being smooth while still maintaining a bold and spicy character. Bulleit Bourbon is a blend or rye, corn and barley malt that blends together perfectly for a bourbon that is warm, with undertones of nutmeg and maple.
The only thing that could make this bourbon any better is the addition of blackberry, lemon, mint and ginger beer to create a cocktail that’s is a little snappy, a lot refreshing, and just rich enough to leave you craving more.
2020 is the beginning of a new decade and that means it’s time to try some new things and see where it all takes you. If you’re looking for a completely unique cocktail experience, let us introduce you to one of Clique’s signature cocktails – the Benny Blanco.
The Benny Blanco starts out with Casamigos Blanco Tequila, and then takes an interesting twist. It’s blended with the sweet spiciness of pineapple chili shrub, and then a little Velvet Falernum is added to the mix. For those of you who might be unfamiliar with it, Velvet Falernum is a rum based liquor with unique character notes of lime, clove, a hint of almond and exotic spices. If you’re a fan of tropical cocktails like the classic Mai Tai or the Zombie, chances are you’ve tasted Velvet Falernum at least once in your life.
This cocktail, which manages to be both rich and refreshing at the same time is finished off with fresh lemon and a splash or two of fizzy seltzer.
It’s impossible to know bergamot without loving bergamot. At Clique Bar & Lounge, we’re proud to highlight this amazing essence is one of our most popular bubbly cocktails – the Bergamot Spritz. Trust us when we say this isn’t your grandmother’s spritz. We create this luscious cocktail using Square One Bergamot Vodka – an Oregon original that is infused with the bright, citrus and floral aroma of bergamot. The finish is surprising warm and spicy with just the right hint of finger and mandarin orange.
We take all the notes of Square One Bergamot Vodka and elevate them with the addition of Galliano, passion fruit, fresh lemon, and of course, a pour of a little bubbly. The Bergamot Spritz is elegant, refined, and will tantalize your taste buds.
