LAS VEGAS (May 2018) – The Underground, The Mob Museum’s new Prohibition history exhibition featuring a speakeasy and distillery, introduces the “Knightcap,” its first cocktail in honor of the extraordinary Vegas Golden Knights.
A twist on a popular 1920s-era drink called The Gold Rush, the Knightcap features The Mob Museum’s house-distilled moonshine infused with Ginger Jake, fresh lemon juice, egg white and brown sugar simple syrup served up in a classic coupe glass garnished with edible gold dust. Normally priced at $12, the Knightcap will be offered at half-price during all 2018 Stanley Cup Finals games. The Underground is open Sunday through Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday until midnight. Admission to the speakeasy is free daily after 5 p.m. and free any time for patrons through its secret side entrance, using the daily passwords found on Instagram Stories @MobMuseum_Underground.
