Drink This Now: The Capricorn at Cocktail Collective in Las Vegas

If your astrological sign is a Capricorn, you should celebrate the season with a signature cocktail, crafted by Cocktail Collective bartenders at The Dorsey, Rosina Cocktail Lounge or Electra Cocktail Club inside The Venetian Resort Las Vegas.

“The Capricorn is a bourbon-based cocktail, so it’s more like a flavored Old Fashioned in a sense,” said Juyoung Kang, lead bartender at The Dorsey. “We have a high-proof bourbon, 94 instead of 80. Then, we did Génépy, which is like a Green Chartreuse but a little less sweet, and added Bénédictine for the sweetness.”

The Earth sign cocktail is a holiday melody of herbs, spice and a touch of nice. “According to the description of a Capricorn, they’re green, of the forest, and they like being earthy,” Kang said. “So, that’s kind of where we went with it.”

On your birthday, visit The Dorsey or one of the other Cocktail Collective bars (Rosina Cocktail Lounge or Electra Cocktail Club), to receive half off on your first zodiac cocktail. It’s the perfect way to let out the Capricorn in you and get the party started. Cheers!
