You may not strike gold in Las Vegas, but thanks to The Hard Rock Cafe you can have it for dinner. The Hard Rock Cafe is keeping it cool this summer with some new unique items. Diners can begin a meal with a selection from the summer cocktail menu which features drinks for a hot Vegas summer day.
I started off with the Rockin’ Fresh Rita, a delicious concoction created with Milagro Silver Tequila, fresh lime juice and agave nectar, finished with their signature sweet and savory rim.
The new buffalo style sliders are served with crispy onion rings, classical Buffalo sauce and blue cheese on a toasted brioche bun. I enjoyed the mix of flavors on the sliders.
The world’s first edible 24-Karat Gold Leaf Steak Burger™ is the featured item. This 1/2-lb fresh steak burger, topped with 24-karat edible gold leaf, is served with Tillamood cheddar cheese, leaf lettuce, vine-ripened tomato and red onion.
Through the Hard Rock Heals Foundation, a portion of all proceeds from the 24-Karat Gold Leaf Steak Burger™l benefit Action Against Hunger to assist in the fight against world hunger. It is glitzy to look at and delicious when you consume it.I was pleased that the genuine gold leaf added a favorable crunch to the sandwich.
Hard Rock offers two new boozy milkshakes to have with your burgers – or enjoy one as a desert. The cookies and cream boozy milkshake contains Absolut Vanilla Vodka, vanilla bean ice cream, white chocolate and Oreo® cookies, with whipped cream and a chocolate Oreo® churro.
The strawberry cheesecake boozy milkshake is made from Absolut Vanilla Vodka and vanilla ice cream blended with the flavors of strawberry cheesecake, with white chocolate whipped cream and frosted animal crackers. The milkshake concoctions are also offered without the vodka, I tried the alcohol infused milkshakes while my wife sampled the non alcoholic version. Both were flavorful and enhanced the gold leaf burgers.
Throughout the year, Hard Rock Cafe will offer limited-time milkshake varieties timed to special occasions or holidays The Hard Rock Cafe is located on the famed Las Vegas Boulevard in the Showcase Mall, next to the MGM Grand and across from the Park MGM and T Mobile Arena. It is open daily from 7:A.M. until midnight.
