About the cocktails:
Ingredients featured in the different cocktails include such seasonal favorites as Vermont maple syrup, house-made Irish cream, eggnog and cranberry. The drinks come hot or served on the rocks, shaken and stirred. All of the cocktails are made with locally produced Onyx Moonshine, which is based out of East Hartford. Here's a gallery of the cocktails, including this Irish Tonic from Vaughn's.
