A Menu That Plots Cocktails By Proof and Guest Disposition

A drinks list that looks like a geometry quiz? It may not sound that enticing at first, but the charted cocktail menu at Blue Ribbon Las Vegas can help make drink selection an interactive and fun experience.

The menu plots cocktails by strength, from low proof to overproof, and disposition, from classic to adventurous. So a guest having a rough day might opt for the Country Lawyer cocktail ($17), made with bourbon, Benedictine, rhubarb amaro), while a lightweight would be a candidate for the Soho Spritz ($15), with Aperol, vodka, St. Germain, fresh lemon and soda.

A low-proof cocktail that falls mid-point between classic and adventurous is the Humming Bird (prosecco, St. Germain and soda), while the punch-packing Freddy Krueger (mezcal, ginger liqueur, fresh lemon and hot sauce) is on the over proof/adventurous side. The Casa Paloma, with Casamigos blanco tequila, grapefruit juice, raspberry and fresh lime, falls in the middle of the chart.

The chart menu presentation not only helps ensure that customers order the cocktail that meets their current mood, it allows for conversation among guests. Cocktail prices at Blue Ribbon, which is located in The Cosmopolitan hotel, are $15 for the low-proof libations, $16 for full proof and $17 for the over-proof options.
