25 Days of Holiday Gifts: Hot Sauce

Day 19: The perfect gift for out-of-towners

Share the St. Elmo Steak House experience without forking over enough for dinner. A bottle of St. Elmo shrimp cocktail sauce can stay at room temperature for up to 10 days before that horseradish starts to lose is famous sting. So it’s safe to add it to a stocking or a package of gifts you’re shipping to a place of lesser sauces. Your loved ones will thank you—once they regain the use of their tongues. $9 at Marsh locations (seafood department). Also available at St. Elmo Steak House (127 S. Illinois St., 317-635-0636, stelmo.com) and Harry & Izzy’s (153 S. Illinois St., 317-635-9594; 4050 E. 82nd St., 317-915-8045, harryandizzys.com).
