Enjoy the light and breezy flair at Aba, the all-time favorite for Mediterranean fare and cocktails. But wait, it’s mocktails we’re talking about this month! Well, if you’re familiar enough with Mediterranean cuisine, then you know they’re no short on non-alcoholic beverages at all. For this Dry January, check out Aba’s Blueberry Tonic, Pineapple Serrano Soda, and Raspberry Orange drinks.

Your favorite Tiki Bar in Chicago brings you the brand new Con Artist, made with Cocoa Nib, Chinese Five Spice, cinnamon bark. The Con Artist uses a tea that we make with Costa Rican single estate cocoa nibs, lending a perceived bitterness as well of sweetness. Honestly, this is just as tasty as any of their regular cocktails. Highly recommended!
