Best Specialty Drink (non-bloody mary)

1st Place: The Grand Illusion’s Delusion
2nd Place: The Livery’s Seasonal Mojito
3rd Place: The Livery’s Prickly Pear Margarita

The most infamous drink in Eau Claire took first place in this category for this sixth year running. The Grand Illusion’s Delusion (418 Water St., Eau Claire) is a drink that’s as strong as it is colorful. The contents are a tightly kept secret and it’s a very tasty drink, but don’t let it fool you: The Delusion is one of the stiffest around, so take it slow. The Livery (316 Wisconsin St., Eau Claire) swept the other two spots on the list: The Livery’s Seasonal Mojito is a mix of rum, mint, limes, simple syrup, and a choice from a variety of flavors. If you’re more a margarita person, try the Livery’s Prickly Pear Margarita. (Several other flavors are available if cactus juice doesn’t sound good.) –Mike Seitz
