Despite long lines continuing to pour out the door on Diversey Avenue, Lost Lake, the popular Logan Square tiki lounge isn't content. Paul McGee has launched a new drink menu that takes liquors not normally associated with tiki, like sherry and scotch, and mixes them in drinks that evoke a tropical spirit.

The menu features three new original cocktails mixed by bar manager Erin Hayes: The "Three of Strong" (bourbon, aged agricole rhum, sherry), "Some Days of Last a Long Time" (scotch, sherry, coconut, lemon, absinthe) and "Saturn in the House of Saturday Forever" (aged Jamaican rum, American gin, passion fruit, lemon, falernum, orgeat, absinthe, Leatherbee's Bësk).

Long-time tiki fans may notice there are only two classics on the new menu (Trader Vic's "Fogcutter," plus a 1950s Zombie recipe by Don the Beachcomber). But there's also a secret, or "whisper" menu so tiki lovers can order more than 100 classic drinks not on the menu.

"With these new menus we're telling our guests that, at Lost Lake, they can feel just as comfortable ordering a 'Bunny's Banana Daiquiri' or a 'Jet Pilot' as they can a rum old fashioned or 'El Presidente,'" McGee said.

Check out the full menu below. The new drinks are available now, which means those lines won't be getting any shorter.
