Mizumi at Wynn Las Vegas is an authentic Japanese restaurant, so it follows that the specialty cocktails revolve around sake, an alcoholic beverage dating back to (at least) third-century Japan and crafted from rice. Mizumi offers premium sake served either cold or warm. For those who have only tried warm sake, it’s highly recommended to try it cold — it’s equally delicious.
Special cold sakes include Jizake Tenzan “Sky Mountain,” dubbed “dry and springy,” and Hakkaisan “Eight Seas and Mountains,” which is round and pure. Warm sakes include Akitabare Junzukuri “Northern Skies” — smooth and complex — and Yoshinogawa Nama “Winter Warrior,” which is bold and savory. Bottles of sake, about four to five glasses, range from $32 to $55. Sake is also sold by the glass for $8 to $18 or by the carafe for $24 to $48. Luxury sakes include Jizake Tenzan, Hakkaisan and Ginga Shizuku.
