You have to find the best. When we are shooting in Chicago the cool kids stay at Public Hotel in the Near Northside. When we are ready for a cocktail we visit our friend Chris Muoio at the Pump Room bar inside Public. All you have to do is tell him what type of liquor you feel like and he will make a cocktail creation. He has even created a couple exclusive cocktails for our Dapper readers.
When you find a place with craft cocktails ask for a menu. This time Chris had a cocktail on the menu called Sweet Winter which actually had sweet potato simple syrup. It was excellent. When we asked him to be creative he made the most fresh unique cocktail ever… with basil.
