1 - Drumbar's Summer Cocktails and Rosé
The LN2 Margarita features Espolon tequila, lime juice, Grand Marnier, and fresh berries, and is whipped with liquid nitrogen.

Drumbar beverage director Craig Schoettler presents a batch of inventive new summer cocktails that are perfect for sipping on the bar’s expansive rooftop patio. The LN2 Margarita is a scientific mix of tequila, lime juice, Grand Marnier, and fresh berries, whipped with liquid nitrogen; while the Tiki is a rum-pineapple-lime libation that’s spruced up with a pinch of cinnamon. There will also be a rotating list of seasonal slushies available throughout the summer—this weekend’s flavor combines Bacardi 8, fresh mango, lime, and a kick of chili.

In addition to creative cocktails served nightly, stop by for Drumbar’s new Rosé Sundays (every Sunday, 12 pm-close), featuring live DJs and an exclusive list of sparkling and still rosés. The four-page rosé menu includes a few wines by the glass, but mostly focuses on full bottles. We recommend the sparkling Pehu-Simonet, a pinot noir-chardonnay blend from Champagne, France with notes of fruit-spice marmalade and pink peppercorn. If you’re craving rosé sometime other than Sunday, try the sangria, made with rosé, apry, melon, and frozen grapes.

For summer evenings with a chill in the air, forgo the sprawling city views for the speakeasy-in-the-sky interior of Drumbar. Both modern and traditional, it makes the perfect spot for a date night or drinks with friends. 201 E. Delaware Pl., 312-924-2531
