What is a Craft Cocktail?
There’s been a recent boom of breweries popping up all over the country. The term “craft beers” has become a common bar term. Not many people may be familiar with its older more sophisticated cousin, “craft cocktails.” Taking on the same general meaning as a craft beer, the cocktails are made with elements explicitly tailored to the drink.
Craft cocktails depend on the presentation of the drink, which is as important as the ingredients used to make them. Often, the cocktails will be served in custom glasses, over custom shaped ice with a little extra flair with a burst of flames or well-placed garnishes.
Where can you find craft cocktails in downtown Las Vegas?
Many bars and pubs in Downtown Las Vegas offer high-quality craft cocktails. They will cost more than the generic well drinks that are available during happy hours as more time and care go into creating the cocktails as well as the use of custom or high-quality ingredients.
If you are unsure of what cocktail to order, ask the bartender for suggestions. They will ask you some preferences you may have when it comes to alcohol choices and be able to construct something unusual and delicious based on of your tastes.
