Resorts spruce up cocktail menus for apres ski
— Moonlight Basin Resort in Big Sky, Mont., offers a bloody mary with vodka from Montana’s Vigilante distillery, topped off with a bit of locally sourced elk jerky. ‘‘We think our Montana-version of the classic bloody mary is the perfect cure for too much apres-ski fun,’’ said general manager Greg Pack. ‘‘What’s more appropriate than pairing locally-sourced vodka with locally sourced elk?’’
— The 1930s Parisian-themed Sweet Spot sits at the base of Colorado’s Crested Butte. Inside, skiers will find an arcade, candy counter and locally produced ice cream. But the real gem here is the martini bar and the establishment’s signature martini: European sipping chocolate mixed with Godiva vodka, a touch of Grand Marnier topped with mini marshmallows, lightly torched.
