Happy Hour: Big Woods Speedway, Harry & Izzy's, And More
The vegan (that’s right, vegan) Bloody Mary featuring New Amsterdam vodka and Wilks & Wilson bloody mix from The Garden Table (342 Mass Ave., 317-638-0321).
The Mule at Big Woods Speedway (1002 Main St., Speedway, 317-757-3250), a nice kick of locally distilled Hard Truth vodka, ginger beer, and a lime squeeze.
The dangerously candy-like Lycheetini at Chiba (228 Park St., Westfield, 317-804-5367), made with a purée of the tropical fruit and vodka.
Relax with the Morganthaller Sour from Napolese (114 E 49th St., 317-925-0765), a refreshing mix of J.T.S. Brown bourbon, Lazzaroni amaretto, simple syrup, and a squeeze of lemon.
The Signature Elmo Cola from Harry & Izzy’s (4050 East 82nd St., 317-915-8045) is named after the restaurant’s much-older sibling, St. Elmo Steakhouse. A glass-bottled Coke served alongside a glass of Maker’s Mark bourbon flavored with imported Italian Luxardo maraschino cherries and Madagascar vanilla beans gets a garnish of drunken cherries that is a worthy snack in itself.
