Gunner’s Libation: The Unicorn

The mixologists at 39 Degrees Lounge at the Sky Hotel seem to always have a pulse on the local cocktail scene. So when the scene was Gay Ski Week, the Sky introduced a warm, boozy drink called The Unicorn. Colorful and chocolatey, with the perfect kick courtesy of Knob Creek Rye and Marble Distilling Moonlight EXpresso, the Unicorn turned out to be popular among the Ski Week crowd — and just about everyone else. Thankfully, 39 Degrees noticed the smiling faces and will keep it on the menu through the winter season.
