Photos & cocktail recipe from Chicago Drink.Think

Thanks again to all those who came out April 23 for the Chicago launch of Drink.Think at Tavernita. We enjoyed some outstanding drinks and dazzling readings from some of the Chicago area’s top drink writers. Just take a look at the photos below (all taken by the talented Jill Howe).

A stellar group of writers shared their original work.

Despite blustery weather, a fun crowd came out for the evening. They were lively. Engaged. Thirsty. 🙂

And the drinks! Tavernita created two signature drinks for the evening. The “El Presidente” was the clear crowd favorite (it’s the drink on the left, below). Recipe below the photo.
