Things are heating up here in Vegas and there’s nothing I like better, except maybe shopping, than a cool refreshing cocktail on a hot day.
I have a secret to share… you can have the best of both worlds and combine the TWO (Shopping & Cocktails) at Fashion Show!
Yes, Sip AND Shop!
Fashion Show has some of the tastiest restaurants around AND they are all featuring some delicious refreshing summer cocktails that pair perfectly with a light bite and alot of shopping.
California Pizza Kitchen
Spiked Cucumber Reviver and Beehive Sangria paired with the Banh Mi Bowl.
These two drinks are seriously THIRST QUENCHING. The Spiked Cucumber Reviver has a yummy cucumber/mint flavor that I would classify as Mojito adjacent. It’s light, sweet and totally thirst quenching. The Beehive Sangria is a refreshing, not-too-sweet, perfectly mixed Sangria with a oh-so-summertastic blend of strawberries, lavender and honey. I suggest grabbing one (or two) of these before you go try on swimsuits- it will make the experience so much more pleasant.
Cucumber Reviver- Pineapple/cucumber puree, fresh mint, Hendrick’s Gin and Cucumber, Lime Agave syrup combine to create this ultimate refreshing drink.
Beehive Sangria- Pinot Grigio, strawberry, lavender and honey.
Banh Mi Bowl- Quinoa, baby kale, fresh cilantro & mint topped with grilled chicken, watermelon radishes, fresh avocado, cucumbers, carrots, bean sprouts, scallions and sesame seeds. Served with housemade chili-lime vinaigrette and serrano peppers.
Jeannie’s at Nordstrom
Vine Street Cocktail paired with Herloom Tomatoes and Roasted Baby Beets
Did you know that on the third level of Nordstrom there is a restaurant (Jeanie’s) with a FULL BAR! YES! FULL BAR! After an exhausting try-on-sesh you can head up the escalator, order a cocktail and curate your shopping list without even leaving the store!
My pick from Jeanie’s, Vine Street, is a tasty cocktail that lands somewhere mimosa adjacent. The effervescence from the Prosecco and the sweetness of the muddled grapes gives it a light “lady’s lunching” vibe.
If you are looking for a lite bite that is healthy and satisfying this Roasted Beet Salad and Herloom Tomatoes are off-the-hook AMAZING!
Vine Street Cocktail- Chopin Vodka, Rose Wine, Fresh Lime Juice, Muddled Grapes and mint with a splash of Prosecco
Herloom Tomatoes, burrata, walnut Jam, Crostini
Roasted Baby Beets, Citrus zest, pistachios, mint
Peach Bellini and The Perfect G&T paired with Crispy Zuccini Frittes and Amalfi Lemon Chicken.
Hello adult slurpee. So yummy! This frozen take on a Peach Bellini will instantly cool you down. Packed full of flavor it’s the ultimate relief from the Vegas heat.
It was love at first sight and then first sip for me and the Perfect G&T. This simple yet sophisticated cocktail only has three delicious haute ingredients and is mixed with my all time favorite Tonic- Fever Tree. Fever Tree Premium Indian Tonic Water is crafted by blending spring water with luscious botanical oils including quinine and oils from Mexican Bitter Oranges to give is a clean unique taste. It really is the perfect Gin and Tonic.
I’ll take 2 of each and a patio seat please!
Perfect G&T- Hendrick’s Gin, Fever Tree Tonic, Cucumber
Peach Bellini- Bacardi Lemon, Ruffino, Prosecco, Peach Puree.
Amalfi Lemon Chicken- Lemon Brined Roasted Bone-In Chicken, Grilled Asparagus, Garlic Mashed Potatos

Pear Perfection paired with The Crab and Shrimp Cocktail
