The Destroyer

The Destroyer is a tequila-based cocktail with an Italian twist. Inspired by the Dino De Laurentiis film Conan the Barbarian starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, it really packs a punch! With fresh tangerine juice loads of basil flavor, it's a super bright drink that feels so refreshing at the end of the day. At Giada Vegas, we serve it over a wrecking ball spherical ice cube and add a suspended basil leaf for even more basil flavor.

If you love 80s movies as much as I do, you'll love my Jane Fonda-inspired Barbarella and my Flash cocktail worth of Flash Gordon. Serve them all together for the ultimate nostalgic movie night with your friends!
