Las Vegas' Most Unusual Cocktail Concoctions
LAS VEGAS (TheStreet) -- Cocktails, a staple of society as a straight spirit or combo, have evolved to maximize the flavor, aphrodisiac power and overall sensuality of the drinking experience. In the latest step in that evolution, nonalcoholic ingredients have moved out of the box from simple syrup to such unusual ingredients as peanut butter and the oyster.

TravelsinTaste went to the city of mixology -- Las Vegas, of course -- to discover cocktails with ingredients that make them strangely sexy, delicious and thirst quenching. Here are our top picks for the social influencer who wants to pique the curiosity of his or her imbibing companion:
|Rick Moonen's RM Seafood's Oyster Shooters come in six surprising combinations, including a cucumber-yuzu oyster shooter with cucumber-infused gin, yuzu and orange juice and an Anchor Steam oyster shooter with the namesake draft beer.|
The sexiest cocktail on our list is the Bunny Tail, a homage to the original Bunnies' most noted fashion tradition, that's served at the Playboy Club inside the Palms Casino Resort. Created by mixologist Dave Herlong, the drink blends the seductive tastes of Limoncello, San Pellegrino Limonata sparkling soda and a choice of either Ketel One, Ketel Citroen or Don Julio Blanco. The distinguishing feature, though, is that after being garnished with a lemon wedge the Bunny Tail is topped off with a puff of cotton candy -- just like Hef's bunnies, although in this case edible. It is served with the Pellegrino and a minibottle of liqueur on the side, so indulgers can pour the sparkling soda and liqueur over the cotton candy, watching the cotton candy dissolve into the rest of the concoction.
