Amazing Signature Libations

Liberate yourself from holiday stress! The Libations section of our menu is filled with signature cocktails to suit any mood and every type of thirst.

Your troubles will seem very far away as you sip on one of our creative concoctions like the “Green Geisha” cocktail, made from Bombay Sapphire East Gin, honeydew melon, lemon, and Kimino Sparkling Yuzu. 

Or, think fondly of Santa going down the chimney while you savor “My Sweet Brick,” a world-class cocktail made from Maker’s Mark Bourbon, Aperol, Grapefruit Shrub, lemon, shiso, and seltzer. 

Want to leave all your cares behind? Try our “Impeared Martini,” a masterpiece of a cocktail if there ever was one, made with La Pommiere Calvados, Rothman & Winter Orchard Pear, unfiltered apple juice, lemon, egg white, 6-spiced honey syrup, and aromatic bitters. 

Try a Santa-Approved Shooter

Santa’s got a pretty sweet deal: he gets to bring children joy, and there are milk and cookies waiting for him wherever he goes. 

Take a cue from the man in the red suit and try our “Cookie Monster” Shooter…a treat that will bring out the kid in you but is definitely intended for adults. It’s made with vodka, coconut milk, espresso, vanilla gomme, and horchata foam…and it’s all served in a chocolate coated cookie shot glass. Yum! 

Enjoy our Tableside Mixology

The holidays are supposed to be about joy and delight…right? Our Tableside Mixology service offers both joy and delight…AND you get the gift of a delicious cocktail to enjoy at the end of the experience!

With Tableside Mixology, one of our skilled mixologists will bring a cart tableside and prepare  drinks right before your very eyes. 

If you’re dreaming of longer, sunnier days, the “Lime in the Coconut” cocktail might be just the ticket, made with Plantation Pineapple Rum, passion fruit, tangerine juice, cream of coconut, and citrus, served in a young coconut with freshly grated nutmeg.

Or, if you’re craving something sweet, you’ll love the “Bow Street Banana,” which is our version of the Smokey monkey cocktail. It’s made with Ambros Banana Whiskey, Pedro Ximenez Sherry, caramelized banana, and chocolate bitters…and it’s all served in a smoked applewood snifter glass. 

Liquid Nitrogen Tableside Libations

Here’s a variation on our Tableside Mixology service that brings a different kind of magic right to your table! With this service, our skilled mixologists add the element of molecular gastronomy to your drink and experience, incorporating amazing feats with liquid nitrogen smoke effects. It’s like a Vegas show in a drink!

You’ll love the finished results, like the “Powell Street” cocktail, a delicious mixture of Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, rooibos-orange cordial, and meyer lemon, all mixed tableside with liquid nitrogen and a cinnamon sugar brûleed orange and edible flowers.

Keep it Light With Our Raw Bar & Sushi

It’s hard to avoid rich and unhealthy food during the holidays…take a break from all that heavy fare with our fresh, light raw bar and sushi offerings!  

Why not indulge in some oysters to start? Score a half dozen on the half shell from our raw bar, served with an addictive yuzu mignonette, cocktail sauce, and fresh lemon. 

As for sushi and sashimi? While Elicit might be known mostly as a bar and lounge, our sushi is serious business. 

You’ll love our creative rolls like the Rainbow Roll, made with big eye tuna, salmon, shrimp, yellowtail, spicy crab, cucumber, and avocado. Or, delight in our Caterpillar Roll, made with big eye tuna, salmon, yellowtail, spicy tuna, avocado, spicy ponzu, cilantro, and togarashi!
