NOW we are getting into the drink of things! My next stop was at The Violet Hour the Bucktown favorite known for their long lines and crafted cocktails. But if you have the inside scoop like me, we had no problem getting whisked in to a favorite booth in the corner.
This speakeasy-esque lounge had me at “Allegheny” ! The Mountain Flip Chicago Christmas Cocktail was a sure winner. Just enough whiskey to warm my bones and malted rye-walnut syrup to wet my whistle with a bit of sweet maple. The crown of the Chicago Christmas Cocktail was the sprinkle off nutmeg slightly on top. You know it’s Christmas when the Cocktail Crafter’s start zest-ing the nutmeg!
Highly recommend this one.
