The Little Nell's bars are perhaps at their signature best during the winter season, when the warmed (and stiff) drinks come out. Ajax Tavern thought up the Hot Drunken Pumpkin, a mix of house-infused vanilla vodka, Godiva liquer and pumpkin puree. The Ajax Apple, meanwhile, uses local (of course) apple cider and vanilla rum. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel's Ajax Tavern also serves a lauded Bloody Mary for those looking to cool things down (while spicing things up).
The Little Nell offers a variety of specialty cocktails, which change according to the season. A winter favorite is the Hot Buttered Peach, a play on hot buttered rum, which features local peach bourbon and a deliciously sweet topping that’s perfect for an afternoon by the fire.
