Underground Summer Libations

July 23, 2014

River North's The Underground launched its new summer cocktail menu this month! The six new cocktails are crafted by head mixologist Jon Ruiz. On a recent visit to The Underground, I checked out samples of these new cocktails and was impressed by the wide variety of flavors and ingredients. Not to mention, then entire space at The Underground has been completely transformed.

The new cocktails include:

  • Kiwi Mule: Effen Blackberry, ginger beer, and muddled kiwis
  • Blackberry DNA: Belvedere vodka, St. Germain, agave, and muddled blackberries
  • Raspberry Bunker: Cointreau Noir, muddled raspberries, agave, pomegranate liqueur, grapefruit juice, and Piper Sonoma
  • Spiced Carrot Cake: Grey Goose Melon, Ancho Chile Liqueur, carrot juice with apple orange and pineapple juices and agave nectar
  • French Apricot 56: Oxley gin, cointreau, apricot giffards, Xante yellow label topped with Piper Sonoma
  • Cassis Martini: Bombay Sapphire, orange juice, creme de cassis, agave and basil leaves

Can you guess which drink was my favorite? Check out some photos of the new cocktails below!
