The one drink you have to have this weekend

Written by

Well, Labor Day weekend is finally upon us. Fall is basically here, and it’s almost time to say goodbye to festivals and drinking on patios.

…But not quite yet. Savor these last few days of summer with Sink|Swim’s Jungle Blade, a sharp take on a classic tiki cocktail. The rum-based drink includes pineapple, lime, Falernum (a Caribbean sweet syrup) and Boomsma Cloosterbitter. No, that last ingredient is not a line of one of the Macbeth witches—it’s an herbal bitter that dates back to 15th century Dutch monks. The Cloosterbitter cuts the Jungle Blade with a subtle mintiness that we love. Plus, it comes with a tiny umbrella, so if you just need to feel like you’re on vacation this weekend, the Jungle Blade is for you.

Sink|Swim boasts incredible seafood (hello, fish and chips) and criminally delicious $1 oysters every day of the week. So have the last laugh at your Michigan-bound friends as you’re the one with Chicago’s best restaurants all to yourself this weekend.
