Rainbow Sangria

I|O Godfrey at The Godfrey Hotel Chicago

Found at the rooftop lounge at the Godfrey Hotel in River North, the Rainbow Sangria is a refreshing delight that combines granita, The Crossings sauvignon blanc, a touch of Grey Goose white peach & rosemary vodka and a splash of Caposaldo moscato. The five-fruit blend created for the granita is frozen into cubes, which transform the drink in color and flavor as they melt. 

16th Street 


The 16th Street at Celeste in River North leads with Avion Silver tequila and Banhez mezcal, and adds Cocchi Americano, Mari Gold amaro, mango, passionfruit and dehydrated lime. The artisanal blend promises a sensory journey that invites you to experience the harmony of taste and sophistication.

Ube & Apricot 


Reserve a table at Selva, located on the 7th floor of the West Loop’s Emily Hotel, where the Ube & Apricot takes center stage. This brilliant purple concoction features Astral Blanco tequila, ube, apricot, lime, plum bitters and topped with cotton candy for a whimsical touch that is also a celebration of Mexican-Asian fusion.

Purple Rain 

Michael Jordan’s Steak House

Elevate your evening on the Magnificent Mile with the Purple Rain at Michael Jordan’s Steak House, crafted with Plantation pineapple rum, Stoli Razz vodka, Mathilde pêche, butterfly pea tea, pineapple and lemon. As the blue-colored tea blends with the fruits, the cocktail takes on a candy-like violet hue while giving off a sophisticated burst of citrus flavors.
