Dining Chicago

Boston by way of Chicago by way of Booze

Nothing brings cities together like cocktails. Chicago and Boston bump fists this Sunday as part of Sable Kitchen & Bar's Lake Shore Limited shindig, wherein bar managers from three of Boston's top dining and drinking destinations serve up three classic cocktails with a Bostonian accent. As a New England expat, having grown up 45 minutes outside of Boston, this metropolitan union is especially touching for me. Also, my brother lives in Boston so this is just beautiful.

Sable Kitchen & Bar
(Sable Kitchen & Bar)

On Sunday, December 8, from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m., Sable Kitchen & Bar plays host to reps from Boston's acclaimed Eastern Standard, The Hawthorne, and Island Creek Oyster Bar. Bar managers from each locale will be mixing up three classic cocktails, each with a Boston-style variation. Sable's head bartender Mike Ryan will be getting in on the action as well. The shindig showcases Bacardi 1909 Superior Heritage Limited Edition in all three cocktails, crafted by Eastern Standard's Naomi Levy, The Hawthorne's Katie Emmerson, and Island Creek Oyster Bar's Gina Richard. Drinks on hand are the DTO (Daiquiri Time Out): it's a Boston thing!, made with Bacardi Heritage, lime, and Peychaud's bitters; Cuba Libre: revolutionary flavor, featuring Bacardi Heritage, lime, Mexican cola, and bitters; and El Presidente: a drink for a boss, with Bacardi Heritage, vermouth, Curacao, and faint pomegranate.

It's a boozy group hug.
