CHICAGO — After this prolonged election season, some folks could use a stiff drink.
Maria’s Community Bar has those people covered with cocktails, served with a side of election night snark.
Bartenders at the beer-centered bar at 960 W. 31st St. have created a special roster of drinks — including a free shot of whiskey for patrons donning “I voted” stickers — that’ll be served up as results are displayed via video projector.
It's all part of the bar's "Election Brew Ha Ha" event, which takes place from 8-11 p.m. Tuesday. The bar and packaged goods store is open 11 a.m.-2 a.m.
Maria's selection of 470-plus beers and craft cocktails will be poured all night, along with $3 “Bartender’s Choice” drinks and $1 off all drafts. Here’s a sneak preview of the four special election night cocktails, courtesy of bartender Patrick Gossett.
Biden My Time: Brandy, Combier orange liqueur, Apple Jack and lemon juice
The Mint Romney: Mint, Green chartreuse, lemon juice and a sugar cube
The Oh, Bama!: Honey, Combier orange liqueur and white whiskey topped with Two Brothers Ebel’s Weiss beer
