“With the shared timing of Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day, we wanted to craft a cocktail that illustrates traditional love themes for the holiday, and also incorporates Chinese culture.

When guests receive ‘Love,’ written as ‘爱,’ we welcome them to top each other’s glass with the champagne, as is customary in Chinese culture.” – Zoey D’Arienzo, vp of food and beverage at The STRAT in Las Vegas
