Thirsty? Here are 20 Iconic Drinks in Chicago

View as Map

Last month, we ran a post featuring 20 of the most iconic dishes in the city and now, to wash those down, we give you the first-ever list of 20 Iconic Drinks in Chicago. This list includes both alcoholic and non, classic cocktails and new twists on those, original concoctions, tasty treats and hot and frozen delights.

Is this the be-all-end-all list? Probably not. Did we miss things? Maybe. For now, however, for your imbibing pleasure, here are 20 drinks that we think are pretty damn delicious. Think the list is missing something or you don't agree with an entry? Let us know in the comments.
