10 W. Hubbard St.

Vermilion tips its hat to Chicago with these four signature drinks: LSDLake MichiganMagnificent Mile and Devil in the White City. Like the restaurant's Latin-Indian dishes, Vermilion's "Ode to Chicago" cocktails are carefully concocted and delicately designed. LSD, the common nickname for Lake Shore Drive (Chicago's famous waterfront roadway) is made with green chartreuse, gin, Assam green tea and oleo saccharum. The Magnificent Mile — crafted with sparkling wine, bouquet ice, and habanero ginger infusion — is every bit as delightful as a stroll down Michigan Avenue. Devil in the White City (cardamom saffron liqueur, coconut milk, and vanilla) is a sweet and creamy combination topped with a single red rose petal making it as pleasing to the eyes as it is to the taste buds.

Harry Caray's Tavern

Navy Pier, 700 E Grand Ave

Harry Caray's Tavern also mixes up their drink menu with several Chicago-themed selections. Harry Caray was the announcer for the Chicago Cubs from 1982 until he passed in 1998.

If dining at Harry Caray's Navy Pier location, try the Navy Pear!
