LETHERBEE GIN (PICNIC) SOCIAL
August 26, 2018 - August 27, 2018
Gather round for a picnic-themed gin social with Scofflaw, Logan Square’s gin-focused neighborhood bar, and Chicago-based Letherbee Distillers. Over red-plaid tablecloths, indulge in upscale takes on backyard favorites like corn on the cob with BLT butter, pickle-brined fried chicken with spiced honey, biscuit platters with country ham, sorghum butter and fruit preserves as well as an icebox cake infused with Nilla Wafers, Crème de Noyaux, macerated peaches and topped with whipped cream.
To drink, guests can enjoy summer sippers like the Letherbee Royale Cup, a Pimm’s Cup riff made with Letherbee Fernet, lemon, cucumber, mint, ginger beer served in a single-serve mason jar ($12) or in large format ($48). Additional featured cocktails include the Pique Nique ($12), which mixes Letherbee Vernal 2018, Cocchi Americano, Lustau Fino Sherry, chareau, and the Gold Violin, a flask cocktail created with Letherbee Gin, Cretan honey syrup and lemon.
Food items are available a la carte or can be purchased as part of “the whole basket” for $40. Representatives from Letherbee will also be in house offering tastings of the product.
Start time: 4 p.m.
End time: 2 a.m.
