High Limit Kir Royale
With a name fitting to its surroundings, High Limit Kir Royale is another Vegas drink that you should order for a special occasion. It’s also indicative of its price since a bottle of this beverage will cost you a couple of grand. But you’re in Vegas anyway, and maybe it’s wiser to spend money on a top-shelf drink than on a poker table.
