Located on the lobby level, the Thoroughbred Club features special holiday drinks, available for a limited time. The Conductor, created in honor of the hotel’s VSOE train display, wraps the sweet smell of holiday treats into a must-try drink.

Rub a lemon slice along the rim of a martini glass, then dip the glass into a dish of sugar. Combine all liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Stir,  then strain liquid into the glass.  Garnish with lemon slice.

For the bourbon infusion: Place one vanilla bean and and one cinnamon stick in the Wild Turkey American Honey bottle and let it infuse for at least a week. Strain before using.
