Depending on timing and traffic, the vantage at Alexxa’s offers you either an Instagram-worthy view of the Bellagio fountains in full balletic spray or a GIRLS DIRECT TO YOUR ROOM mobile flashboard drilling into your soul. But you’re here for their menu of sangria, the official spring drink of Las Vegas as of me writing this sentence. The Blanco (albarino wine, citrus, peach schnapps) is perky and tangily sweet; the Moonshine (zin, blackberries, currants) is dusky, heady, rich. There’s also one called The Modern, which lists “chef’s whim” as the ingredients. What is that? I don’t know. Which is why I’m going back.
