Given the myriad bars scattered throughout The Broadmoor, it’s no surprise that a few signature drinks have developed a following. At the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Penrose Room, for instance, there’s the Penrose Sunset, which combines Gran Centenario Reposado tequila with pomegranate juice, fresh rosemary and agave nectar. But since Summit is where the mixology magic is really happening these days, head there and ask for a WestSlide, made with CapRock gin (an acclaimed local product), housemade limoncello, fresh lemon juice, basil and a dash of white balsamic vinegar, of all things. Meanwhile, barkeeps at the Golden Bee are toasting to the pub’s golden anniversary with pints of ESBee, brewed exclusively for the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel by Colorado Springs’ own Bristol Brewing Company. Drink up.
