Drinks Inspired by Casino Glamour

Theme parties let you experiment with food, drinks, and costumes to delight your guests. Matching a menu with decorations makes for a memorable evening, and there are dozens of themes to choose from. An always popular one, however, is ‘A Night at the Casino.’ If this interests you, here are three drinks you can serve based on popular casino games and themes.

Jolly Rancher Infusion (With Flavor Options!)

Since there are slot games based on colorful sweets and candy treats, it makes sense to have a drink of a similar nature. For example, Sweet Bonanza is an online slot game by Pragmatic Play that lets players match symbols on the screen to trigger a payout. The symbols include blue sweets, green sweets, watermelons, grapes, and purple sweets. There’s also a lollipop symbol that lets gamblers unlock even higher payouts. You can delight your guests with a drink that matches this game, such as a jolly rancher-infused drink.

Jolly Ranchers are hard candies with flavors similar to the slot symbols in the game: watermelon, grape, sour green apple, and blue raspberry. To create this drink, put 4-6 of the same-colored Jolly Ranchers in a glass, pour lemon-lime soda over the top, and let it sit in a container overnight to dissolve in the drink. For garnish, you can add a lollipop to the drink, matching Sweet Bonanza even more and giving you the perfect candy-themed slot game drink for your party.

Shirley Temple

A Shirley Temple is a sweet drink containing grenadine, lime juice, ginger ale (or lemon-lime soda), and maraschino cherries. It’s named after the 1920s American actress and singer Shirley Temple. This is the perfect drink to serve at a casino-themed party because Temple starred in the 1934 comedy-drama Little Miss Marker.
The film follows a group of gamblers who take in Temple (Marky) as one of their own after her father dies. In 1998, the film was inducted into the National Film Registry and has been remade several times, making it a classic watch for gamblers.

Texas Hold’Em

Texas Hold’Em is a popular table-based casino game where players are dealt two cards face down. It’s one of many poker variants that can be played between 2-10 people. And what better way to honor the game than adding Texas sweet tea to your drinks menu? According to Texas Monthly, whether the drink originated in Texas is undecided, but we know it’s easy to make and only requires five ingredients.

Here’s a breakdown of how to make the drink: place tea bags in a large measuring cup and add baking soda. Next, pour boiling water over the tea bags and cover them for 15 minutes. Once these steps are done, you will take out the tea bags and pour the tea mixture into a pitcher, adding sugar. Stir until all the sugar is dissolved, then add cold water. Finally, let the drink cool in the refrigerator and serve it to your guests over ice!

Casino-themed parties let you experiment with food and drinks to match a variety of games, such as slots, poker, and blackjack. Most people associate casinos with dressing up because of James Bond, so it’s the perfect time to break out your cocktail dress or tuxedo. Plus, because there are so many game variants, you’re never at a loss for adding themed drinks to your menu.
