    I can only speak for drinking in the casinos while gambling.... A Margarita is my "go-to" drink to order while gambling.

    The Cosmopolitan has the best Margaritas on the floor, by far.

    My favorite bartender, Lance at Bellagio in the bar by the Sportsbook, swears that he makes "the best margarita you have ever had". :) I'm not sure if it's the best ever, but I've sure had a lot of them and they are yummy.

    I've had the Cosmo one's on the floor and they are pretty good, like ams said. Most casinos will serve you the standard syrup mix from the gun with some generic tequila. Cosmos' don't taste like one of those.

    I hope Lance is still there. An old VMBEer and I spent many hours, over a few trips, at the bartops, playing VP and helping test his margarita recipe. :drunk:

    The best one in my opinion is at Cosmo at the China Poblano restaurant. It is called a salt air margarita and has a thick layer of foamy salt on top and it's excellent.

    I have a big passion for tequila and margaritas.

    I think the margaritas at Javier's are great. For a change of pace, try the tamarind or the pineapple margaritas. Strong!

    I second the suggestion for the salt air margaritas at China Poblano. I will often grab one to go from their take out window.

    I also agree that Cosmo has very decent ritas available on the casino floor.

    I am no Margarita expert, but I've had one at Parasol Down at Wynn. They have a fancy pants Margarita with a nice smoky taste. If I remember correctly the "smoky" tequila addition is served in a separate little cup so that you can add to taste. It was really good.

    I need a Wynn trip!

    Javier's! I was so hungover one afternoon and I tried so hard to drink one...it was a terrible idea but it was so delicious.

    I am not a big Luxor fan but I would go to T&T (tacos & tequila) just to have their Margaritas - highly recommend Top Shelf and Strawberry Agave. They have an impressive list of tequilas to choose from.

    Highly recommend Hussong's Cantina at Mandalay Place, especially their happy hour.
