Sin City Burger, Smashburger

These burgers are made from never-frozen meat, “smashed” on a griddle with a weight so that the patty gets a nice char around the edges. They’re available as either third- or half-pounders. The chain restaurant names a specialty burger in honor of its location, so the Sin City variety sports bacon, cheese and a fried egg. And it’s every bit as indulgent as its namesake.

All roads lead to Rome. At least they do for Wirtz Beverage Nevada mixologist Andrew Pollard. “I’m continuously inspired by the culture of the ‘Old Country,’ and the fine spirits that derive from it,” he says. Pollard brought his love for Italy with him to the recent 10th annual Tales of the Cocktail spirits and bartending convention in New Orleans. At happy hours, a “Spirited dinner” (attended by the sixth Count Branca—the real deal!) and even a cocktail breakfast, Pollard carried the banner of the Distillerie Branca portfolio, including the cultish Fernet Branca.
