Needing a way to stay sane with the kids ALWAYS around, Dr. Elixir decided that mixology would be his COVID-19 hobby. As word spread about his new talent, his popularity grew. Then, one day, he received a call that changed his life – YES, he'd love to be the mystery mixologist for Katonah Connect! Cheers!
