Hump Day Happy Hour

A Drink for a King in Honor of Elvis' Birthday

This Saturday marks the birth of the first true American Idol: Elvis Presley. Along with rock and roll, Elvis the Pelvis brought sexual liberation to ladies across America — young women could finally admit that a hip-thrusting hottie turned them on. (Duh.)

So throw on your “Blue Suede Shoes” and celebrate Elvis' musical and cultural contributions with this week's cocktail, “The Libertine,” made for Glo by Chandelier Bar, located on the Vegas strip Presley frequented.

Aptly named, the drink reflects the freethinking attitude of The King himself. Infused with maple syrup, “The Libertine” is the next best thing to an actual pile of pancakes.

“The Libertine”

Ingredients:

1 barspoon Orange Marmalade

1 oz. Lemon Juice

1 oz. Rosemary Simple Syrup

2 oz. Maker's Mark 46

Maple Syrup Foam*

*Maple Syrup, Orange Juice, Egg Whites

Directions:

Assemble first four ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Shake and strain into a 12 oz. whiskey tumbler filled with cubed ice. Top with foam.

Chandelier Bar is located in The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, a luxury resort in the heart of the Vegas strip.
