    Hi Everyone,
    I recall someone mentioning that they got this most delicious drink somewhere. It may have been the Cosmopolitan? And was there a specific bar? My girls Vegas Trip is in September and we have a special drink of the night and would love to include that! Can’t wait for September, Viva Las Vegas,

    Yes, the Raspberry Lemon Drop martini is at Cosmo. I'm pretty sure one of the bartenders at the Chandelier Bar makes it the best. @Astribling would probably remember his name. They are AMAZING and dangerously smooth!

    Yup those are delicious and dangerous! I'm thinking it was Jeff at Chandelier. Great bartender!

    Now I need one!

    Getting them at Chandelier is your best bet, but they can be ordered on the floor too.

    I know it’s silly to look forward to a cocktail, but hey, with all that’s going on, it’s the little things that matters. We will definitely look up Jeff, thanks all and CHEERS.

    Like Tring said, the are also comped on the slots floor, for any level of player. At the bar is probably even better, but they are amazingly good on the slots floor too, and free!

    Sidenote, Cosmo is one of the FEW places that comps Grey Goose on the slots floor for any player, at least up to my last December trip. And I can tell because I always feel OK the next day. Even behaving at other places, crappy vodka, I can feel the next day. Some places say "yes" to certain brands, but you get something else.

    FYI the Raspberry lemon drop is their own blend, but for other drinks, GG and kettle have always been comped.

    There is nothing silly about that. I LOVE seeing what the bartenders are concocting. I'm more of a downtown/off strip guy but I always take time to visit some places. DTR, Oak&Ivy, Bin 702, Velveteen Rabbit, Starboard Tack and Frankie's Tiki are all welcome spots for me. It's Vegas. The beer at McMullan's always seems better than home. Even the beer at Stage Door is served with the perfect amount of filth. Nothing silly about it.

    That drink is also a specialty at the bar in Hugo's, in the Four Queens. Obviously a less glamorous, much smaller bar, but if you were downtown, a choice to consider.

    Minus 5 makes a really good raspberry lemon drop! Plus, the ice bar is super fun for a group.

    Oh my goodness... So delicious. They were my downfall during my last stay at Cosmo. Eventually I just had them hold the sugar rim because I didn’t need all that.

    Thanks for the downtown options everyone, we live downtown and go maybe 2 or 3 times during our 7 day getaway. Anyone else have any go to cocktails.

    My bartender buddy says Chambord but he does not bartend at the Cosmo.

    I'm sure there are cheaper options in use at some places, but in my experience it's usually Chambord.

    that's what I was thinking...Chambord.
    My neighbor uses it in her Martini's along with Stoli Rasp.
    Expensive stuff, pretty bottle.

    Anyone with the actual recipe? as to how much of what?

    1 1/2 oz vodka, 1 oz simple syrup, 1/2 oz each Chambord, triple sec, bar lemon. Shake and strain.

    This is how the same bartender I mentioned before makes it.

    I better make sure I'm staying at the Cosmo when I try these, as I don't fancy my scooter's chances of making it back to Wynn, or even Nomad :drunk:
