Rich licks to juicy burgers to the Champagne of Beers, these are summertime’s must-have indulgences.
Miller High Life
It’s weird that the Champagne of Beers smells like corn, but more than any other mild American lager, it satisfies with a crisp mouthfeel and a gentle lover’s murmur of malt. Don’t question it. (Ditch that skunky Pabst.)
Sweet Corn and Cheddar Ice Cream
Sweet and cheesy, rich and cold. It melts like butter on your tongue, feels like heaven and tastes fantastic. Manila Market, 1416 E. Charleston Blvd., 702-384-5617.
The Vegas Burger
Bobby’s Burger Palace named one of its top sandwiches after our great city, topped with tons of white American cheese, spicy red chile peppers and barbecue potato chips. CityCenter, 702-598-0191.
Blackberry Lemonade Popsicle
This pure, icy pop from the local treat slingers at Sasapops is sweet, tart and packed with chunks of real fruit. Kinda like licking summer. ChillSpot, Downtown Container Park, 702-900-7873.
Don’t fall victim to watered-down iced coffee. Keep a growler of rich, cold-brewed Caffé Vita goodness in your fridge, available at Downtown’s new O Face Doughnuts. 124 S. 6th St. #140, 702-476-3223.
Ceviche de Pescado
It’s hard to get more refreshing than this lip-smacking, lime-marinated white fish served Peruvian style with sliced potatoes, onions and all the trimmings. Mi Peru, 1450 W. Horizon Ridge Parkway #315, 702-220-4652.
At Art of Flavors, it’s all about the case, that beckoning display where gorgonzola pear and cinnamon bun gelato share space. Sample to your heart’s content, then settle into cold, creamy summertime bliss. 1616 Las Vegas Blvd. S. #130, 702-676-1027.
Jaleo’s Clara is the very definition of refreshing, house-made rosemary lemonade mixed with crisp Estrella Damm pilsner. Cosmopolitan, 702-698-7000.
