I can’t believe it’s October already! Our weather here in Las Vegas has been perfect: 70 to 80 degrees during the day. I don’t miss the 100-degree weather at all.
For this post, my husband and I returned to The Strip to find the most Instagrammable cocktails in Las Vegas. Like my other posts, I’ll add to this list when I find other pretty drinks that are worth it.
A Little Birdie
This was my first time going to Juniper Cocktail Lounge at Park MGM. I had to order A Little Birdie, because, well, how can you not? Our bartender served the cocktail in a bird-shaped glass which I’ve never seen anywhere before. This well-made fruity drink was strong, which you’ll welcome after sipping on watered-down slushies all day on The Strip.

Blue Hawaiian cocktail at The Peppermill Restaurant & Lounge.
I actually wanted to order The Scorpion, but I don’t think I can finish a 64 oz. goblet (and I’d hate to throw the rest of it away). The Blue Hawaiian is still a good looking drink, however (and it tastes good, too). Pretty much anything you order at The Peppermill Restaurant & Lounge will look Instagrammable because of their iconic, retro decor.

I was scrolling through Yelp when I saw pictures of Guy Fieri’s bloody mary and I knew I had to see it in person.
So my husband and I went to Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar on the Las Vegas Strip and the bartender looked at me funny when I ordered a bloody mary at 3:30 pm on my day off (a Wednesday). The funny look was worth it, because look how gorgeous this bloody mary is!

Dole Whip With Rum
Last weekend, my husband and I finally went inside The Golden Tiki after passing by countless of times in Chinatown. The line of people outside their dark wooden doors always seemed intimidating, but once it’s inside, it’s not like that at all.
The host seated us at a cozy high top and I ordered their infamous dole whip with rum. Mine came with a paper umbrella and a plastic, swinging money and it’s the prettiest drink I’ve ever had. They played Suedehead by Morrissey, the ceiling had moody twinkling stars, and I’m so relieved a place so cozy and whimsical like this exists.
