Baijiu, the trendy spirit which generates $23 billion in annual sales, is coming to ARIA Resort & Casino.

Spearheading the invasion is Mixologist Craig Schoettler who has created a variety of unique signature cocktails to introduce the spirit to the Las Vegas audience. Schoettler is crafting Western-style cocktails from the traditional Chinese spirit, like the Baijiu Colada, a tropical cocktail made with genuine Moutai Pure Joy, coconut, tangy passion fruit, crisp ginger and a squeeze of lime to make an extremely flavorful drink.
