Cocktail of the month: The Noble Irishman at Elixir

Elixir is hidden atop a curlicue of asphalt that swirls off of Green Valley Parkway, in a nondescript office/retail cube that looks more suited to CPA firms and law practices. (You even have to take an elevator.) It’s worth the hide-and-seek session, though: The sparkly bar-restaurant’s ambitious menu and cocktail list suggest hidden-gem status. My favorite: The Noble Irishman. It’s a Moscow Mule with whiskey instead of vodka, plus maple syrup to play off the earth and spice of the Jameson. The martini glass seems like a fussy touch, but the ginger beer does give The Noble Irishman a festive bite. And while the holidays are behind us, I’m certainly not done celebrating.
