LAS VEGAS (April 2013) – The popular “5-6-7” Happy Hour menu is now available at Andre’s at Monte Carlo Resort and Casino. At either Andre’s Bar or the upstairs, signature award-winning Cigar Lounge on the second floor, the menu is offered Tuesday through Sunday from 5 to 7 p.m. The unique menu pricing makes it easy to remember the offer: all beers are $5, all cocktails are $6 and small dishes are $7.
Beers for $5 include: Heineken; Coors Light; Corona Extra and Newcastle. Batch 19 is also on the menu and to note about this particular beer: in 1919 beer was banned. Barrels were broken. Breweries went belly up. Drinking a beer became an act of protest against those in power. Each toast was a citizen’s demand to enjoy life’s simple pleasures. When beer became legal again 14 years later, it was never the same. That is, until a few years ago when Coors discovered an old beer recipe in the basement archive of the brewery dating back before Prohibition. Batch 19 is inspired by the last batches of beer brewed before 1919.
For the $6 specialty cocktails created by Andre’s Beverage Director Patrick Trundle, guests can swill the Moscow Mule (vodka, fresh lime juice and fever tree ginger beer); Willy Nilly (vanilla vodka, peach liquor and cranberry juice); Pomegranate Lemon Drop (citrus vodka, pomegranate liquor and fresh citrus with simple syrup); Karamel Apple (karamel vodka, apple liquor and fresh citrus); Lower Manhattan (Maker’s Mark bourbon, carpano antica and a brandied cherry) or the Cucumber Collins (Hendrick’s gin, fresh lemon and lime juices, mint, cucumber and soda).
Finally – for the delectable $7 small plates: French Flat Bread (garlic and herb butter); French Olives (picholine and niçoise); Tuna Tartare (avocado and wasabi crème); Warm Stuffed Dates (applewood smoked chèvre) and Steak Frites (pepper aïoli), Chickpea Panisse (roasted tomato relish) or the popular Spiced and Smoked Nuts.
