Friday Happy Hour: Black Apple at the New John Barleycorn

John Barleycorn has invaded River North, and no one is safe. Because you can’t escape the tight-jeans-wearing dudes and sequin-covered babes, you might as well drink to the new location. One may assume this mega-bar only serves vodka-tonics and Jagerbombs. Guess again, because the menu is full of seasonal cocktails such as a whiskey float made with Jameson, root beer and vanilla ice cream. There are also 90 beers on tap.

We recommend starting the weekend with a Black Apple. This rum cocktail is made with Amaro Averna liqueur, apple pearls and pumpkin spice. It has the flavors of fall with a kick of rum everyone needs before venturing into the night on Kinzie.
