Default Vodka Collins info requested

Hi,

I've been drinking vodka collins drinks for ages. This past weekend, I
ordered one in the Bellagio Hitel and Casino in Las Vegas. It was really
different (in a good way) and I'm trying to find out what was in it.

It didn't appear to be carbonated. It had an orange slice in it and a
very slight amount of some kind of "foam" on the surface. It had
a slight orange and lime taste. It was the best vodka collins I've ever
had.

What do you suspect was in the drink?

b.

Rather than speculating, why don't you ask the barman who made it? Or
did he die/leave suddenly ?

In the good old days, good bars/bartenders made their sour mix from scratch
with simple syrup (50/50 water/sugar) with real citrus juices strained
through a VERY fine mesh strainer. Also, before anyone was worried about
salmonella (remember Rocky's drink?), bartenders used a bit of raw egg white
to give the lovely foam you're refering to. The old-fashioned way is
usually the best way. I'm not surprised that a hotel as reputable as the
Bellagio would make a Collins the ":right" way.
