Why Elicit Lounge is the Bar for an Indulgent Cocktail in El Cajon

Enjoy Our Bar and Indulge Your Senses with Elicit’s Unique Cocktail Creations

When you’re in the mood for an exceptional cocktail experience, which destination pops into your mind first? There’s no shortage of bars to grab a cocktail in El Cajon, but none are quite like what you’ll experience at Elicit Bar & Lounge, tucked inside the Sycuan Casino Resort. What makes Elicit different is that our expert mixologists are true masters of their craft, and always on hand to create a cocktail that’s everything you dreamed it would be. 

With a full bar that includes an incredible selection of craft beers and deliciously luscious wines, you could order practically anything and be content. However, why would you want to settle for the ordinary when Elicit offers so many unique, addictively sip-able cocktail creations? It’s here that you can let your palette play and try something completely out of the ordinary, all at the hands of our expert mixologists – who always seem to have something new up their sleeves. 

We welcome you to come experience the full selection of enchanted spirits at Elicit Bar & Lounge, but there are few creations on our mixology menu that we think might capture your attention and tantalize your taste buds. When you’re looking for something truly unique, here is a sampling of our favorite cocktails that are sure to exceed your expectations. 

Dr. Cel-Ray Pepper 

While we’re a big fan of a nice juicy, sweet cocktail from time to time, there are occasions when you’re in the mood for something a little less sweet but equally refreshing. Our expert mixologists had no problem coming up with a solution to this “problem”. If you have a feverish craving for something that’s fresh, a little herby, and carries a bit of a bite, then all you need to do is call in the doctor – Dr. Cel-Ray Pepper, that is. 

This one of a kind cocktail is crafted with 50 Blue Vodka, celery-peppercorn shrub, cucumber, lemon, and then is topped off with the refreshing fizz of seltzer and the unique bite of celery bitters. This cocktail is perfect for the person who loves a martini, or other savory drinks like a bloody Mary. It’s a refreshingly perfect way to welcome in the evening. 

Island Vibes

There are also times when the air outside in lusciously warm, and a gentle breeze lingers on your skin. If you were to close your eyes, you might think that you had landed on a cushy daybed at a tropical resort. Well, it might not be the tropics, but the Sycuan Casino Resort is a perfect place to escape to – especially when you stop into Elicit Bar & Lounge to order our Island Vibes.

The Island Vibes cocktail has just the right amount of tropical flair that has been kicked up a couple notched with just a hint of spice. What are the ingredients that make up this island worthy concoction? How about smooth Plantation Pineapple Rum, a bit of coconut, some mango-chili gomme, and calamansi – which adds a uniquely delectable, citrusy punch. Perfect for sipping on a lazy, warm day while imagining your next tropical getaway. 

Berry Sandia

Of course, no drink menu would be complete without an ode to the juicy, ripe berries of summer, but we’ve taken it a step further with a tribute to the luscious sun-ripened goodness of an overflowing summer garden. If fresh and fruity is what you’re in the mood for, then we welcome you to try our Berry Sandia, and we can guarantee it’s going to put a smile on your face. 

We’re not sure what our mixologist envisioned when creating the Berry Sandia, but we know that the end result is nothing short of pure, adult cocktail perfection. The Berry Sandia is crafted using smooth Belvedere Vodka, strawberry ginger shrub, watermelon, a hint of citrus, and a little Thai basil to mellow out the sweetness. The Berry Sandia is nothing short of pure summer indulgence packed into a glass. 

Explore the Mixology Cart

Of course, you don’t need to saunter up to the bar to enjoy a unique cocktail at Elicit Bar & Lounge. For those who are looking for something that’s a little different and a tad more indulgent, we offer our upscale tableside mixology cart. 

When you request our tableside mixology cart, one of our expert mixologist bring the bar to you. You can request any drink your heart desires and watch as a masterful mixologist performs their craft right in front of your eyes. The tableside mixology cart includes fresh juices and garnishes to create any of our incredibly fresh cocktails.

Trust us when we say that tableside mixology is real experience. 

The tableside mixology service at Elicit is a showstopper, especially when you request something like the Bow Street Banana. The Bow Street Banana is Elicit’s version of the Smokey Monkey Cocktail. A skilled mixologist will show up at your table to blend Ambros Banana whiskey, Pedro Ximenez Sherry, caramelized banana, and chocolate bitters. Simply irresistible, especially when it’s served in a smoked applewood snifter.
