Income Tax Bar, Chicago, IL
The new 50-seat Income Tax restaurant which just opened its doors in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood, will debut a special cocktail on April 18. The namesake cocktail, a gin-based classic dating back to the 1920’s, is a blend of Americano Blanco, Red Vermouth, orange and bitters, specially priced at $6 for the occasion.
Owner Nelson Fitch, a Northwestern University graduate who is also a Mezcal specialist, says that the original cocktail that he’s recreated "was invented shortly after the institution of our federal income tax. It's essentially a Bronx cocktail with the addition of bitters. Stylistically, it fits somewhere between a Martinez and Negroni.”
