5 of Our Most Popular Handcrafted Cocktails

Tiki Joe

You’re sure to be swept away to the islands when you order this customer-favorite drink. Featuring the rum of your choice mixed with coconut milk and cold brew, this cocktail refreshes in a way that no other drink can. Add in a sprinkle of Demerara sugar and you have yourself an incredible libation that will make it difficult not to have another.

Daily Planner

If you love gin cocktails, then the Daily Planner is a must-have treat when you stop in our Chicago bar. Featuring a cucumber vodka mixed with gin, lime, simple syrup, and celery bitters, this cocktail washes away the frustrations of the day, refreshing your spirit as effectively as it does your palette. This cocktail is perfect for long summer evenings out on the patio with friends.

Cody’s Summertime Fun Punch

Are you craving a fruity cocktail that is reminiscent of backyard barbecues with friends and family? As the name implies, Cody’s Summertime Fun Punch offers a party in a glass. It starts with tequila and Stiegl Radler, a spritzy grapefruit beer drink from Austria. Orange juice and cranberry juice are added to the mix to create a light, fruity drink that is a summertime favorite.

Steel Magnolias

Ever seen the movie “Steel Magnolias” with Julia Roberts, Sally Field, and Shirley MacLaine? If so, you know these ladies were just as full of grit as they were Southern charm and our aptly named drink is no different. Featuring a perfect combination of whiskey, peach Schnapps, lemon, and simple syrup, this cocktail might just have you speaking with a Southern drawl by the time you’re finished with it.

Oaxaca Old Fashioned

We’ve taken the recipe for the traditional Old Fashioned and given it a Mexican twist to provide our customers with a drink that is distinctly unique. This handcrafted cocktail features mezcal mixed with your choice of tequila, orange bitters, and mole bitters. A sprinkle of Demerara sugar adds a sweet touch to this one-of-a-kind drink that you’re sure to love.
