Want to get high? (On sugar.)
For a tougher side of sweet, the five-skulled Fink Bomb at Frankie’s Tiki Room (1712 W. Charleston Blvd.) featuring coconut rum, melon liqueur and pineapple juice, is big on booze and the sweet stuff.
The Huntridge Soda Fountain (1144 E. Charleston Blvd.) serves up milkshakes including the oft-recommended Oreo milkshake.
MadHouse Coffee (8470 W. Desert Inn Road) serves up a rich Red Velvet Mocha hot or cold — so you can finally have your cake and sip it, too.
Visitors to Miracle Mile’s Sugar Factory candy store (3663 Las Vegas Blvd. S. #720) can lick up a Blow Pop Martini. (Yes, it includes a bona fide Sour Apple Blow Pop.) The ingredients are a long list of syrupy and intoxicating liquids, but the true pièce de résistance is the Bubblegum Pop Rocks-rimmed glass.
Pick up your Desert Companion today at one of these Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf or Jamba Juice locations.
Also available at Clark County and Henderson libraries.
