Chicago steakhouse junkies, this one's for you. To celebrate the first Morton's Steakhouse, established in 1978 on State Street, order the Morton's State Street Manhattan. The cocktail is a blend of Woodford Reserve bourbon and Carpano Antica vermouth, which is infused with Luxardo cherries and orange peel. To top it off, you'll get a slice of New York strip as a garnish.
As Chicagoans, we have plenty of reasons to love our city (pizza, hot dogs and beautiful summers come to mind). To show our pride, we rounded up a handful of creative cocktails that celebrate the city in all its glory—from a seriously stacked Bloody Mary to a Chicago flag-adorned sipper. Raise a glass and make Chicago proud with these top drinks.
