    We were just there last week. Drink at the Caesars pool were $18 for a 16oz. Ouch! Definitely made it a point to pregame in the room a little.

    I spent $22 on a margarita at the Aria pool. I think it is 24 oz though. I think the pools are where you really get taken.

    As in a single drink? About $30 for a glass of Burgundy at Rio's wine cellar.

    Not at a bar but the big $26 foo-foo drink at either Paris or Bally's pool is a must do each trip. They last for a couple of hours or more & are delish!

    $32 for a goblet at the sugar factory. It is a lot of alcohol though.

    Not me, but my GF comped a couple their next round at a bar in the hotel she works as they had a complaint. They took this to mean whatever they want and ordered an $850 glass of Louis the something brandy and a vodka mixer. She got hauled into see her director over it who luckily said that it happens to everyone once and in future stipulate more.

    The barman was either in on it or a moron, and the couple doing it are some real scumbags IMHO. Some people will just take advantage of any situation they can though.

    I think I paid $25 per for that at Excaliber's steakhouse.

    But I think I paid around $30 for a big margarita from the place at the back of the Forum Shops mall. I got a few extra shots added to it....

    $22 for malibu, pineapple juice and a splash of cranberry to share with the wife when we saw Ron White at Mirage.

    Not a rather proud moment. The drink, nor the price.

    I'm cheap. Probably 12 bucks a piece at the Palms pool. Usually hit up the bartop for a bit when I want to get blotto.

    I prefer 12 or 15 to 18, I just can't stand 18's sweet finish. That said, I've found you can get it comped with relatively low betting at MB if you hit the right waitress.

    2 shots of Fireball. $15 each at Dicks Last Resort. I will never go back. They are $9 each at a nicer bar, cannot remember the name, in the same casino. That is expensive, but within reason.

    This just happened to a coworker a couple weeks ago. I think it was almost $400 in high end wine. She could have comp'd the room instead and come out ahead. She learned her lesson, but was pretty upset that people will do things like that.

    The most expensive drink in Las Vegas for me was a $7.00 Haagen Dazs Chocolate Milkshake.

    I was with a buddy when he bought a $60 margarita at some bar in the forum shops. It was fairly large and loaded with Patron. Also got 2 caesars and a beer, total came to $130 for 4 drinks.

    the most expensive drink ever? The one I bought my future bride! Almost 24 years of wedded bliss and two daughters, one just finished college!
