By definition, an elixir is “a magical or medicinal potion.” Funny thing is, many beverages that were first advertised as elixirs, or cure-alls, ended up transforming into popular beverages we still drink today. For instance, Coca-Cola is one such drink. So is bitters, the additive now commonly used in cocktails. If it were up to us, however, we’d stick with good old-fashioned liquor. After all, a good drink of whiskey could certainly be called magical under the right circumstances. If you’re inclined to agree with us, then this week’s everyday carry pocket dump is for you. Because, if you know the value of a stiff drink, you should also be able to have one when the mood strikes.
