The Fourth of July falls on a Thursday this year, but why not start celebrating earlier on in the week? Like say, today?
This week, Rebar at Trump International Hotel and Towers will offer the Firecracker Cocktail ($18), a summer sipper that consists of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and Red Berry Ciroc vodka. The beverage is nothing if it isn’t festive, topped with whipped cream and presented with a flag and sparkler.firecracker
In addition to its holiday offerings, Rebar presents an ever-evolving mixology program with emphasis placed on the use of fresh juices, mixers, herbs, spices and edible flowers. All pair well with the Japanese-inspired fare and sushi platters available to enjoy while you take in the view of the Chicago river.
Other seasonal cocktails include the Reveev, a refreshing martini made with Veev Açaí, fresh blackberries and champagne; and the Red Dragon, a spicy blend of jalapeño infused Chopin & fresh raspberry puree, accented with fresh lime. If you’re celebrating with a group, ask about the bar’s punch bowl service and splurge on the Flor Blanco, a white sangria creation made with St. Germain, Absolut Vodka, Far Niente Chardonnay and a bouquet of fresh, seasonal fruit.
Whether you’re finishing your patriotic spa day at The Spa at Trump with a cocktail or settling in for a drink while taking in the Navy Pier fireworks from the lounge space, let’s just say Uncle Sam will be proud.
