“Atmospheric river” no longer only describes a form of inclement weather now all-too-familiar to Tahoe — as of Tuesday, Feb. 21, it is also the name of Harrah’s and Harveys Lake Tahoe’s newest cocktail.

Inspired by recent storm systems moving throughout Northern California and Nevada, The Atmospheric River includes fruit juices, vodka, cognac and more to produce a refreshing adult beverage fit for the season.

“The master mixologists at Tahoe’s two most popular casinos combine Grey Goose Vodka, Hpnotiq Liqueur, Cointreau, Curacao, Sweet & Sour and Seven-Up, blend it with ice and serve it up in a chilled, sugar-rimmed martini glass.

“The Atmospheric River blends the frosty peaks of the Sierra Nevada with the stunning shades of blue found only at Lake Tahoe,” states a press release from Harrah’s and Harveys Lake Tahoe.

Stateline’s newest cocktail is available exclusively at the California Bars located on the Harrah’s and Harveys main casino floors.

It’s time to celebrate!
