As we transition from flip flops to ankle socks, and swimsuits to leather boots, here is a list of a few “sweater-weather” cocktails to imbibe this fall! Take a deeper look into the menu by clicking on each restaurant name and make sure to tag us @ChromecityChicago if you sip on any of our fall favorites!
1. BEATNIK | 1604 W Chicago Ave
Beatnik’s Scottish Spice Trail, created by Bonhomme Hospitality Group’s Head of Beverage Benjamin Wood puts you in the spirit of fall at first sip. Its luxurious autumnal flavor profile is combined with ingredients like sesame, maple, banana, lemon and Chinese five spice (cinnamon, cloves, fennel, star anise and peppercorns) and Scotland’s most prominent scotch. The sweetness of the tropical and citrus fruits add balance to the charge of spices, making for the perfect kickoff into the new season.
2. BORDEL | 1721 W Division St
Bordel’s Spanish Coffee, created by Bonhomme Hospitality Group’s Head of Beverage Benjamin Wood, is a jolting combination of rich, russet Spanish brew coffee, sweet orange liqueur and cane sugar. The faint cloud of malted cream adds a nutty, mellow note that lingers until you find the bottom of glass. Experience the warming flavor of The Spanish Coffee, tucked into a candlelit corner in Bordel’s speakeasy during a nightly show or at the bar with the book you just can’t seem to put down.
3. GOOD MEASURE | 226 W Chicago Ave
Good Measure’s Pisco Sour, created by Head of Bar Sophia de Oliveira, leads with a La Caraveda Pisco and falls into a spiral of seasonal ingredients like sweet leblon, nutmeg and soothing chamomile. Enjoy this fall-forward cocktail in the moody black and red interiors of the rockabilly-styled space while relishing in the fringy, cool music atmosphere that is Good Measure.
At Good Measure, Sophia de Oliveira (Head of Bar) presents a no-frills version of the classic Old Fashion with a Oaxacan spirit. Anchored by Tromba Reposado tequila as its base, it’s combined with just two additional ingredients: Vida Mezcal and agave. Shaken, served over ice and finished with an orange peel, the Oaxacan Old-Fashioned is the perfect blend of bitter and sweet, classic and fringe, just like the vibe at Good Measure.
