    Can anyone who drinks martinis recommend a good "comped" martini to ask for while playing slots at the fancier hotels like Aria/Belagio?

    I already plan to ask for a chocolate and a lemon martini but I'm looking for other gooed recommendations. :licklips:

    I'm not a Martini drinker but from what I've heard I would suggest splitting the difference between Aria and Bellagio and go to Cosmo.

    depends on what you like, traditional? sour? sweet, bitter...

    (and not to be nit-picky, but anything in a v-shaped glass is not a "martini", at best they are "cocktails" and if you speak to a "mixologist" (read :hipster bartender) not even all of them can be classified that way...) a Martini is Gin and Dry Vermouth, a dash of orange bitters..thats it)

    Personally I like a drink called a "Negroni" a great cocktail served either up or on the rocks with a slice of orange...great appetitie opener before dinner...its equal parts Gin, Campari (bitter orange), and Sweet Vermouth stirred till cold. Takes some adventure at first if you are not used to those flavors, but it is one of my favorites..and two or three will knock you sideways!

    Bellini at Bellagio, Raspberry lemon drop at Cosmo, chocolate at Aria. I like appletinis at Cosmo too. If you like champagne, try a French 75. I've only gotten them at Bellagio, but Aria and Cosmo will probably make them too.

    I like gin and I like sweet (but not too sweet) drinks as I feel all that sugar makes a person more hungover. That being said, I may just have to try this one. Thanks :)
