El Cortez Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas is offering a cool down cocktail so refreshing, you just might forget you’re still in the desert.

Whether you’re hitting the blackjack tables or people watching at The Parlour Bar, slide your usual Moscow Mule aside and treat yourself to the ultra-refreshing Siegel’s Spritzer.

Named after the famed mob boss and former owner of the El Cortez, Bugsy Siegel, this refreshingly light cocktail offers a harmonious blend of Vermouth, Rosé Liqueur and Sparkling Asti. Topped with a skewer of fresh raspberries and offering just the right amount of fizz, the Siegel’s Spritzer is sure to become a new summer favorite.
