What is Raquette Lake Elixir? Have you heard of it? It’s known as the Adirondack’s most famous Bloody Mary mix!
“Nothing beats a pitcher of Bloody Marys when you have guests at your camp or home. But who wants to go to the store to pick up the 8+ ingredients you need to whip them up yourself?? Relax. We’ve got you covered. We’ll bring the fire, you bring the ice.” (rlelixir.com)
Rachel’s Raquette Lake Elixir uses fresh & wholesome ingredients to produce its thick and full-bodied spicy Bloody Mary mix. It’s packaged in resealable glass bottles that are guaranteed for 2 years (unopened). Once opened the bottle must be stored in the refrigerator and will last 3 weeks.

How did Raquette Lake Elixir come to be?
Rachel explained that the way she got started in the whole Bloody Mary business was through her experience growing up in her family’s dinner boat business — Raquette Lake Navigation — on the WW Durant on Raquette Lake. While bar-tending on the boat she developed her own Bloody Mary mix that became extremely popular with customers. She decided to start bottling her mix and applied for a scheduled process from Cornell University that allowed her to begin producing her Bloody Mary mix in the Raquette Lake Navigation’s commercial kitchen.
Demand grew and she was unable to keep up with production on her own, so she began a relationship with a processing facility in central New York that now produces and bottles her exact recipe. That allows her to devote time to the marketing and distribution of the mix that she has named “Rachel’s Raquette Lake Elixir.”
