Toast your favorite fighter
The Cosmopolitan is serving up a series of "Money Fight" craft cocktails from August 25-27 at The Chandelier, Vesper, Race & Sports Book, and Bond. They include the Mystic Mac (Jameson, lime, cardamom, and ginger beer), the Pretty Boy (Ciroc pineapple, lemon, and tropical Red Bull), Glass Jaw (a margarita with Patrón reposado, lime, orange, and tamarind ginger) and Bob & Weave (Patrón Silver, lime, lemongrass, lychee and cucumber soda). Each one is $16 -- a lot less than a ticket at the T-Mobile Arena.
Caesars Palace has some cocktails of its own in honor of the boxing showdown -- offered at Alto Bar, Lobby Bar, and Montecristo Cigar Bar from through August 27. Take your pick of the Bee Sting (Gentleman Jack, Bénédictine, falernum, and lime juice), Pretender or Contender (Jameson Black Barrel, Luxardo Maraschino, St.-Germain, lemon juice, and Angostura bitters), Punch Drunk (Rémy Martin 1738 Royale Cognac, Cointreau, lemon juice, and egg white, with cinnamon-sugar rim) and He's a Ginga (a Moscow Mule made with Jameson Irish whiskey) -- all for $16 each.
The best bargain on fight drinks may be at Therapy downtown. The Mayweather Margarita is a sparkling tequila cocktail with orange juice and gold flakes on the rim, costing just $10. Meanwhile, the Irish Knockout is a $5 shot of crème de menthe, Baileys, and Grand Marnier.
