Las Vegas: Dinner and Cocktails at Searsucker

Flower and Vine

On the first night I was in Las Vegas for Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of America convention, we checked out Searsucker at Caesar’s Palace. We started off with a round of drinks. I opted for the Flower and Vine as I love June liqueur and it goes so well with G’vine gin. I asked for it to not be too sweet and it was perfect.

Flower and Vine – G’vine Floraison gin, Espirit de June liqueur, blueberry, lemon

The menu has section called jars and slices. From this category, we got hummus and crab and avocado dip. The hummus was solid as well as the pita.

I really liked the nori chips from the crab and avocado dip. I thought they were so interesting to turn sheets of nori into sturdy chips.

My friend had the What’s She Having. I have to say this was very balanced. But I was intrigued by the Bauchang orange liqueur as I’ve never seen that before.

What’s She Having – Botran silver rum, Bauchant orange liqueur, tangerine, lime, raspberry

We also got shishito peppers and lollipop wings. If I had walked away at this point, I would have said I was quite full.

The wings were so cute as they were done up “lollipop” style so you don’t have to struggle to get every bit of meat.

I also tried the Far South of the Border with mezcal. This was an interesting margarita-like variation. I probably would have gone with more mezcal as the peach could overwhelm at times.

Far South of the Border – El Silencio mezcal, peach, agave, lime, tarragon

As people selected their dinners, I was torn. Do I get a big juicy burger and call it a night?

Or be good and get a grilled piece of fish?

In the end, I got something I really wanted. I got the veggie (vegan no less!) curry but I added grilled shrimp to it. I was very happy with this set up.

What a wonderful first night in Vegas.
