Just call Mariena Mercer the goddess of tequila, maker of novelty cocktails, and empress of edible drinks. The chef mixologist at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas just came out with a new line of drinks that pay homage to Alice in Wonderland and find homes at the resort’s Rose. Rabbit. Lie. and Chandelier Bar. The Las Vegas native landed her first job at Delmonico Steakhouse at the Venetian, then moved on to Treasure Island to be the resort’s tequila wizard. Two years lager, she landed at the Silverton as the head bartender, and started adding molecular mixology to her repertoire at Dos Caminos at the Palazzo. Here she shares some of her favorite places to drink in Las Vegas.
