Chasity has taken a seasonal approach to the cocktail menu and all have been great! She utilized fresh produce, a note to being one of Bridget Albert's students(Where we both graduated from in AOS class 14). Chasity's experience in the mixology world, from working at different bars all over the city have really come together to create some wonderful cocktails.
|The Smoky Ginger Georgia Peach|
The 1st time I visited was before the grand opening and the end of summer, so her summer cocktail menu was still on. I tried 3 cocktails, The "Smokey Ginger Georgia Peach", The "Golden Days", and The "Twisted Julep". All three of these were excellent end of summer cocktails, to transition into fall cocktails. My personal favorite was the Smokey Ginger Georgia Peach. Very well balanced and a treat to see JW Black integrated into a cocktail. Alot of people are afraid to play with scotch, but this cocktail is a winner!!
Chasity just rolled out her fall menu and I was in the restaurant on Friday night and its a couple more winners on there as well.. When you are at Alain's be sure to try the Autumns Fall Sangria, The Classic Stoop, which is a Gin cocktail that features egg whites, rosemary and Grapefruit bitters, and the Golden Days which has taken a bit of a remix and made its way onto the fall cocktail menu.
So when you're looking for a new place to visit for good food and great cocktails see my good friend over at Alain's 1355 S. Michigan Ave. in the heart of the South Loop. Here's a link to the website
