It’s difficult to walk 200-feet down the Strip or Fremont Street without seeing someone sipping from a giant cocktail, oftentimes slightly taller than a toddler.
The phenomenon of big drinks in Vegas isn’t difficult to understand, after all, Vegas and the abuse of mind-altering substances are a package deal for most.
Although oversize drinks in Vegas often come at an inflated cost, it’s a small price to pay in exchange for the joy they provide in the form of an elevated BAC, and reprieve offered from the oppressive Nevada heat.
Below, you’ll find some of the most popular spots to grab a big drink in Vegas, both on the Strip and downtown, with many options reaching 100 oz. in size.
If witnessing that neverending parade of big slushie cocktails has you wanting one, I suggest reading on.
