Cocktail of the Week

Pucker Up

Red Square Las Vegas, Mandalay Bay, $13


Far be it from me to drink or recommend anything with the word “pucker” in it. But I like my Krol vodka naked and straight out of my freezer; you might prefer yours in a high-end cocktail. Mimicking the flavors of Krol itself, James Deyro’s Pucker Up combines the flavors of ripe, sweet berries with tart citrus, like the perfect raspberry Lemon Drop. Of course, it also doesn’t hurt that during Reverse Happy Hour, Sunday through Wednesday from 11 p.m. to close, it’s only $6.50.


1.5 oz. Krol Lemon-Raspberry


0.5 oz. Triple Sec

Splash of Chambord

Splash of freshly squeezed lime juice


Rim a cocktail glass using a lemon and sugar; chill. Combine all ingredients over ice in a tin. Cover, shake hard and strain into the glass. Garnish with a fresh raspberry or lemon wedge.
