Three Chicago beer cocktails made the cut for Serious Drinks' "Drinking Nationally" list (Disclosure: Anthony is the Chicago correspondent for Serious Drinks).
The cocktails Anthony selected for the list include the Gage's take on a Dark and Stormy called the Perfect Storm. It's a $12 mix of Gosling's Black Seal rum, Domaine de Canton, Ginger, and Harp. Terzo Piano's $8 Summer Shandy, made with Two Brothers Ebel's Weiss, Hum Botanical Spirit, lemon juice, grapefruit juice and lemon/lime soda, hits their menu April 1. Newly opened Leopold makes the list with their $11 Vim and Vigor, a mix of Leopold Brothers Apple Whiskey, Gran Gala, and Flemish Red Ale, served with a cinnamon stick and a sprig of thyme, that Anthony writes reminds him of a very complex hard cider.
