The specialty cocktails at Element 47 in The Little Nell are dubbed Colorado Cocktails, since they’re made with liquor from the state’s artisanal distilleries. For example, the Silver Lining cocktail features Silver Tree vodka (from Denver’s Leopold Brothers’ small-batch distillery), yellow Chartreuse, blood orange, basil and silver leaf, while the Black Pearl is crafted from black and gold rums by Montanya (in Crested Butte), Gosling’s ginger beer, pineapple and housemade grenadine. Winter warmers are hot drinks designed to warm you up after a day on the slopes. Consider delectable drinks like Hot Apple Pie, Hot Buttered Peach or mulled wine. The decadent Little Nell hot chocolate can be spiked with liqueurs such as Frangelico, amaretto or Bailey’s Irish Cream.
