Specialty cocktail – “Maleficent Martini” at Venteux Chicago

Last week we talked about our Orange Mocha latte of the month, but that’s for the earlybirds isn’t it? Don’t worry night owls, because we didn’t forget about you! As we continue to get into the Halloween spirit, we are also offering… a Halloween Spirit! Get it? You may be too old for trick or treating, but who said you can’t treat yourself? And that’s exactly why our mixologists concocted the Maleficent Martini. We didn’t summon spirits or make it in a cauldron if you’re superstitious– we just used a tumbler, and some of the finest flavors that will surely cast a spell on you and the rest of Downtown Chicago.

So, what’s in this potion?

Aside from the usual double-double, toil and trouble, our Maleficent Martini is a tantalizing mixture of Empress Gin, raspberry liqueur, lemon, and champagne. If that’s not enough, we’ve garnished this potion with edible glitter just to keep it festive. If you like a dry drink with a sweet finish, then you’ll be coming back for more. Be sure to get your fill while you can, because just like a ghost in the night, it’ll be gone before you know it!

Not quite the flavor you’re looking for?

If you’re not into our witch’s brew, then our craft cocktail program leaves little to be desired. Whether you want to “Spill the Tea” with Mallorca melon tea infused casamigos, casamigos mezcal, serranos, lime, agave, and tajin, or keep it simple with a French Martini with Absolut Elyx Vodka, Pineapple, Chambord, there’s plenty more where that came from. 

Not the cocktail type? 

If you’re in the mood to keep it simple our full menu boats bottled and draft beer, champagne, pink & white wine, red wine, Rosés, French whites, pinot noir, cabernet, elegant reds, French reds, port & dessert wine, vodka, bourbon/rye, scotch, gin, cognac, tequila, and mezcal. We only carry the highest quality wines and spirits, and if you have a preferred cocktail in mind, you can rest assured that we can mix something up for you that you’ll call your new favorite drink.
