Rachel's Raquette Lake Elixirs have become the staple bloody mary mix in the Adirondacks. Rachel was born and raised in Raquette Lake, NY, a teeny, tiny town in the heart of the Adirondack Park.  She was introduced to the beverage business at a young age.  When she was eleven, her parents Dean and Donna, decided they were going to build a dinner boat and go into the food service business, even though they had zero restaurant experience.  The ship’s hull came in two pieces and her dad, along with three of his employees, welded it together and built the boat from the hull up over a duration of two winters.  Dean and Donna began devoting themselves and their lives into turning the dinner boat into a class act fine dining floating restaurant with Rachel and her three siblings in tow. Earning a living had become a family affair. Rachel had developed her own mixer and it became her signature drink. Join her and her family on their dinner cruises or purchase her elixir, you can find the elixir all over the Adirondack region.
