The return of hockey is sweet, and two local businesses are making it a little sweeter — just in time for the Golden Knights season opener against the Anaheim Ducks.
Black Tap in The Venetian is “shaking” things up with the release Thursday of its Golden Knights Shake. The caramel-based milkshake comes topped with a miniature “hockey puck” cake, whipped cream, caramel drizzle and a cherry, in a glass rimmed with vanilla frosting and black and gold sugar pearls. It’s available every day through the end of the season for $17. venetian.com/restaurants/black-tap.html
A few miles to the south on Las Vegas Boulevard, Sickie’s Garage Burgers & Brews is offering two different Knights-themed adults-only shakes for guests to enjoy as they watch the game on one of the establishment’s 30 screens. The VGK Crunch Adult Milkshake is made with vanilla ice cream, Butterfinger bits, Baileys Irish Cream, Buttershots schnapps, and Smirnoff Vanilla Vodka. Or opt for the Crosscheck Adult Milkshake, which mixes Sailor Jerry spiced rum, Captain Crunch cereal and hazelnut liqueur into a vanilla base. The permanent additions to the menu are priced at $9 apiece. Sickie’s is located in Town Square. sickiesburgers.com
The puck drops for the Knights and Ducks Thursday night at 7 p.m.
