Confessions of a Mixologist: Pliny's Elixir
Bartender Angie from the Binny's Lincoln Park Tasting Room got the inspiration for this potion after hearing about how much Pliny the Elder enjoyed his pears. It's a well-balanced cocktail, with bitterness from amaro pairing perfectly with the spiced pear flavors of the St. George Liqueur. Be sure to stop by the next time you're in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, say hello to Angie, and try a Pliny's Elixir for yourself! You will not be disappointed.
