Derby Breakfast Club @ Park on Fremont

If I'm drinking before noon, my weapons of choice are Mimosas and Bloody Mary's. On this morn at Park on Fremont, I choose the Derby Breakfast Club. Served in a mason jar, this drink is practically breakfast in a glass. It has some serious strips of bacon in it and an entire pickled, hard boiled egg! Aside from the bacon, my favorite part of this Bloody Mary was that it was spicy, but not hot. I hate when I get served a Bloody Mary that's half Tabasco sauce. The spiciness was perfect and well offset by the egg and bacon. And I believe the whiskey used is also bacon infused! Delicious! I can taste this drink just thinking about it. If you want a legit Bloody Mary, check this one out pronto!

Liquid smoke, bacon infused whiskey, bloody mary mix, bacon, pickled egg?!!? It's out of control good!

Anytime there are strips of bacon sticking out of your glass, you know it ain't a normal drink.

A Sin City Foodie favorite!

Zen Mojito @ Fin

The Zen Mojito was a very good take on the traditional Mojito. With dragon fruit and blueberries there was a lot of nice flavors residing in this drink. It was sweet but not overpoweringly so and the Mojito "vibe" was still there amongst all the fruit. My only gripe is that there was so much actual fruit in the drink, it was kind of hard to drink through a straw because the fruit would get stuck. Aside from that minor issue the Zen Mojito is fun and tasty and definitely worth trying.

At $12 it's a pricey little guy, but it's worth trying and is fun.

Coconut Margarita @ Coconuts

Coconuts is located in the ever revolving pad across from Rave Theaters in Town Square. I think this location has been at least four different restaurants so far. I stopped in during a Town Square bar hop and tried their "signature" cocktail.

The Coconuts Margarita sounds weird and is weird, but in a good way. It still has a typical "limey" margarita undertone but actually blends well with the coconut overtone. Mine was made well enough where I could still taste the alcohol but it wasn't brash. Overall this drink is pretty delicious. With almost 20 different margarita options, I think this is probably one of their better ones. It's refreshing and still feels like drinking a margarita, just with a little twist to it.

Ingredients: Tequila, coco lopez, pineapple, lime.

It's $10, but served in a decently big glass with a heavy handed pour of liquor. Not bad.

It's good, not amazing.

There's nothing fancy about this drink, it's served in a glass with a straw. For $10 you think they'd at least put a slice of coconut on it...

It's a good option if you're already at Coconuts, but not a destination drink.

Kumori @ Sushi Samba

I'm all about audaciousness, so if I see a sake cocktail with a cucumber rim, I'm all in. The Kumori is available at Sushi Samba inside the Palazzo and should be ordered by all adventurous convivialists. The Kumori was rich and mine was definitely made strong. It has the cucumber flavors on the forefront with a slight sake kick on the back end with the salt rim balancing it all with each sip. For $12, it really is very good compared to its water-downed counterparts elsewhere on the Strip.

Ingredients: Nigori sake, shochu, gin, muddled cucumbers, nori-salt rim, slice of cucumber.

Off the Strip it would be like $8, but it is till an excellent drink for the money.

Very rich and complex with the cucumber and sake flavors having a tug of war in your mouth.

It's a good looking drink, the cucumber rim is definitely different.
