This summer, Carnevino Italian Steakhouse at The Palazzo Las Vegas invites adventurous imbibers with a taste for the unexpected to indulge in its latest farmer’s market cocktail, Vesuvius. Always favorites with Carnevino’s patrons, farmer’s market cocktails change with the seasons to make the most of locally sourced, freshest and most flavorful ingredients.
Named for the infamous volcano near Naples, Vesuvius combines freshly squeezed lemon, blood orange and pineapple juices with Fortaleza Blanco tequila and tangy Aperol. House-made apricot sorbetto and chickpea foam provide refreshing and savory elements to the cocktail. Finally, the drink is topped with a touch of espelette pepper and garnished with micro basil and a Fresno chili.
Vesuvius was concocted by Carnevino’s own barman Adam Rains and sells for $16. It will be available through Aug. 31, 2016.
