Chicago’s Spring Awakening: The Malort Meadow Mingle

As the icy grip of winter gradually loosens its hold on the Windy City, and the first shy blooms start dotting the landscape, there’s an undeniable buzz in the air—it’s not just spring that’s on its way, but the season of celebrations, gatherings, and outdoor delights.

And what better way to embrace this seasonal shift than with a Malort mixed drink cocktail that embodies the spirit of Chicago itself?

Introducing the Malort Meadow Mingle, a drink that not only tantalizes the taste buds but also captures the essence of the city’s vibrant transition into spring.

The Essence of Chicago in a Glass

At the heart of the Malort Meadow Mingle is Malort, a liqueur as Chicago as the Willis Tower skyline.

Its unique bitterness is a nod to the city’s resilience and complex charm, a reminder of the bitter cold we’re leaving behind and the sweet warmth ahead.

This distinctly Chicago spirit is paired with fresh lemon juice, bringing a zest of freshness and optimism. Violet liqueur adds a floral note, echoing the state flower of Illinois and the blossoming of new possibilities.

But what sets the Malort Meadow Mingle apart is its effervescent personality, courtesy of a splash of club soda. This makes it as refreshing and invigorating as a Lake Michigan breeze in April.

Served with a garnish of lavender or a lemon twist, it’s a cocktail that’s visually striking, aromatic, and brimming with the promise of spring.
