From the inbox...Seasonal Cocktails Debut at Twisted Spoke

In the inbox this week, a look at seasonal libations at the Twisted Spoke. Which one will you try first?



Whether for a nightcap or to cure a hangover, Twisted Spoke is Chicago's staple for strong whiskey cocktails, and the cold weather brings a new menu of seasonal creations.  For almost two decades, Twisted Spoke has been the city's go-to whiskey bar, offering over 400 different whiskeys at a time.  To help battle the chilly weather, new elixirs and toasty creations are available.  Not a fan of having the cocktail's name over shadow the ingredients, Twisted Spoke's new drinks ($9 each) are simply identified by random numbers, letting the whiskeys and other warming ingredients shine. Cocktail additions to the menu include:
