If you’ve yet to experience Superfrico inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, then you’re missing out. Spiegelworld’s first-ever restaurant perfectly blends Italian American Psychedelic cuisine, out-of-this-world entertainment and an innovative cocktail menu unlike anywhere else.
“The inspiration behind the cocktails is that out-of-the-box, audacious, house party-type vibe that only Spiegelworld could deliver,” says Leo Robitschek, principal pourer of Superfrico. “At the end of the day, we wanted the cocktails to be fun and creative.”
Within Superfrico, you’ll find what’s known as the Ski Lodge, Las Vegas’ first aprés-ski cocktail bar, which has a fireplace and a picture window overlooking the world’s finest winter skiing destinations. Some of the drinks to sip on in the Ski Lodge include the Sexy Diablo, Shotski, Salty Sled Dog, Slava’s Snowstorm, Dusty Moonboots and Southside Snowplow.
“In the Ski Lodge, we took inspiration from our Impresario Extraordinaire Ross Mollison’s love and history of the slopes,” Robitschek says. “The cocktails are meant to evoke the same travel nostalgia of the 1970s and classic ski tropes, so we’ve customized that menu to have reimagined 70s classics.”
The Ski Lodge will also offer a “Holiday Spectacular” menu during the holiday season, featuring festive drinks like the Ho, Ho, Hot Chocolate, Dreidel, Dreidel Dreidel, Not the Buttons! and Santa’s Little Helpers.
The cocktail menu within the restaurant includes a small selection of Negronis. “Our Pizza Party Negroni takes a beloved, classic drink and infuses unique flavors like basil and Roma tomatoes to create an exceptional flavor profile not often seen in a cocktail.”
If you prefer specialty cocktails with your meal, Robitschek offers drinks like the Psycho Pop Party, The Cosmonaut of Las Vegas, High Wire Espresso Martini, Porn Star Martini, The Machine Dazzle, Penguins Take Manhattan and the Under the Host Martini.
Besides creating unique beverage menus for the restaurant and its multiple bars, Robitschek crafted up house-blended and bottled cocktail flasks, plus a selection of small-batch beverages, which can be enjoyed to-go from Superfrico’s onsite Bottle-O retail store.
