Shark Week has officially arrived and the desert city of Las Vegas loves sharks too.
Bonefish Grill is diving into the week-long shark coverage with a new cocktail that’s sure to cause a fish frenzy – Jaws on the Rocks – Absolut Citron vodka and St Germain Elderflower liqueur shaken with a refreshing combination of white cranberry juice, fresh lime and simple syrup, and garnished with frozen cranberries and fresh mint served in a shark tiki mug for $9.40.
Cabo Wabo Cantina: The "Shark Tank," is made with a vibrant mix of Absolut Lime vodka, blue curacao liqueur, sweet and sour, and topped off with ginger ale, priced at $48, served in a shareable 50-ounce take-home glass on Sunday, July 28. The first to reach the bottom of the “tank” will be treated to a gummy shark—that is, if you can make it past the skeletons, that might have swum a little too close. If you’re not afraid of a little blood, shoot back the cherry bomb shot, made with grenadine and vodka, right from a shark’s mouth.
The POOL at The LINQ Hotel : The adults-only pool, which offers complimentary admission to all guests 21 and older every day of the week, will transform into a shark-themed retreat where revelers can enjoy shark-tastic poolside programming, drink specials, shark swag and more. Featured cocktails will include the Hammered Shark (Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey®, Mike’s® Strawberry Kiwi, Fever-Tree Ginger Beer and grenadine), the Deep Blue Sea (Absolut Vodka®, blue curaçao, lemonade and raspberries) and The Great White (Malibu Rum®, blue Curaçao, lemonade, grenadine, blackberries and raspberries). Guests can enjoy these deals Sunday, July 28-Sunday, Aug. 4 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
