Has Ted Kilgore lost his mind? Did the spirit of a frat boy with a thirst for "jungle juice" descend into the body of the city's most acclaimed mixologist and inhabit his soul? Surely there is an explanation for the seemingly unthinkable: Kilgore is serving Everclear at Planter's House (1000 Mississippi Avenue; 314-696-2603).
Relax, cocktail enthusiasts, and let the man explain. "Everclear was created to be used medicinally and to be infused," Kilgore explains. "It's been abused over the years, but that's not how it was intended. It's actually a clean slate for making infusions."
