Cocktail of the Week: Aloha Old Fashioned, Wynn Las Vegas

9th August 2019 // By Emma Reynolds

Aloha Old Fashioned, Tower Suite Bar at Wynn Las Vegas

  • 1.5 oz Bacardi Gran Reserva 10 Year Rum
  • 1 oz Giffard Pineapple Liqueur
  • 0.5 oz Smith & Cross Navy Strength Rum
  • 0.25 oz Lustau East India Sherry
  • Barspoon of Fernet Branca
  • 3-4 dashes of Angostura Aromatic itters
  • Dehydrated pineapple chip
  • Purple orchid

To make, pour all ingredients over a large ice cube, stir and garnish with a dehydrated pineapple chip and a purple orchid.

Those who really know the Wynn Las Vegas surely know the Tower Suite Bar, the Wynn’s lobby bar that brings together locals, guests of the hotel and gamers to congregate over a cocktail of your choice. With its comfortable sofas and low lounge chairs, all in a chic, cream-colored hue and accented by gold-and-silver tables and decor, the Tower Suite Bar is a sure stopping point for those walking in and out – in fact, it’s never not buzzing.

Come for the drinks, but stay for the ambiance. While here, an Aloha Old Fashioned must be your drink of choice. The rum-based old-fashioned cocktail recalls a traditional old fashioned but with a Hawaiian punch. Combining sweet pineapple flavors with smooth, aged rum and a bit of bitterness with Fernet Branca, the result is a well-balanced refreshment you will surely come back to again and again.

Because the Tower Suite Bar is open all day long (at breakfast, it serves coffee and pastries), it’s a nice place to take a breather between gaming, shopping, events or simply to escape the hot Las Vegas sun. Small bites and other cocktails can be ordered here throughout the day and well into the night. If rum isn’t your thing, the bar is known for its signature Old Fashioned that is made as traditional as they come.

Just steps from the Tower Suite Bar is the casino and plenty of luxury shops.
