For the holidays, Elixir's H. Joseph Ehrman infuses Wild Turkey with cardamom, cranberries, and cinnamon. Then he makes the Kentucky Pilgrim cocktail by mixing the infused whiskey with hot water, lemon juice, maraschino, and demerara syrup. The finished product is hot and spicy, providing guaranteed warmth from the inside out.

The second oldest saloon in the city, Elixir's talented mixologists serve up classic staples and unique, handmade cocktails with fresh fruit and herbs in a scene-free, old West atmosphere.
