Review:

Nail the perfect balance and this cognac-based cocktail sings on the palate with cognac, richly subtle cherry, and zesty lemon acidity.

History:

A riff on the classic Casino Cocktail, hence the name referencing one of the most famous Las Vegas resort casinos.

Adapted from a recipe created in 2015 by Andrew Loudon at Satan's Whiskers in London, England.
