Cocktail Tasting: In Chicago, we drink our bacon.

  • Craft & Barrel 1433 West Belmont Avenue Chicago, IL, 60657 United States (map)

Join Craft & Barrel for a cocktail tasting event — our first one ever. Brian from BC Merchants will be mixing speciality “at home” cocktails that you can duplicate for your friends at your next dinner party, book club meeting, or because it’s a Monday. Two of America’s favorite (tasty) things will be a highlight of the night; bacon and bourbon. Yes, you read that correctly. Your eyes have not deceived you. Brian will be sharing his Bacon Bourbon Shot recipe and the Craft & Barrel staff are looking forward to trying it. Join us, won’t you?

  1. Cocchi Americano Rosa and Bianco 
  2. Hayman’s London Dry
  3. New Deal #1 Gin
  4. Oola Barrel Aged Gin
  5. Ol’ Major Bacon Bourbon
  6. Miro Vermouth de Reus
