  8. Confessions of a Mixologist: Adonis

    Sherry has long had an unfair reputation. Dismissed as the stuffy drink of choice for aging British aristocrats, or sickly sweet jug wine more suited to cooking than drinking. Fortunately the variety and quality of sherry is being rediscovered. Sommeliers and bartenders are putting it back on menus and serving up classic, sherry-based cocktails from more than a century ago. This cocktail takes its name from the musical Adonis, one of the first Broadway hits back in 1884.

    This cheeky cocktail is sour and bitter with a sweet finish. It reminds us of a melted Popsicle on a hot summer day. Bartender Angie selected the gin for its key lime and juniper flavors. It's distilled locally in the heart of Chicago at CH Distillery on Randolph Street, just less than two miles from both our Downtown and South Loop locations.

  10. Confessions of a Mixologist: On Second Thought...

    Confessions of a Mixologist: On Second Thought...

    On Second Thought is a twist on the classic cocktail, The Last Word. Bartender Colleen wanted to use Rhubarb Tea Liqueur, an 80-proof spirit that's a blend of rhubarb, lemon, and beets, along with spices like cardamom, pink peppercorns, and coriander. It compliments the gin well and creates a mix of floral and bitter flavors with a tart bite - very similar to the taste of Sweetheart candies. Super delish!
