'I'll Have The Lurch, Please!'
If you were an "Addams Family" fan back in the day, you should get a thrill from these specially themed cocktails now on the menu at Custom House Tavern.
The South Loop restaurant's mixologist Denise Beckman has whipped up whimsical creations in honor of each character, like our absolute favorite, Lurch. That one's simple, but guaranteed to give you a buzz with Dewar's Scotch, Aperol and Carpano Antico Sweet Vermouth.
Here's the rest of the menu:
Morticia: Hibiscus syrup, rosewater and cava
Gomez: Smalls Gin, Oloroso Sherry, pastis
Wednesday Friday: Buna No Tsuyu Saki, Ransom Gin, red grapes
Pugsley: Sobeiski vodka, Luxardo Maraschino and a few secret ingredients
Uncle Fester: Old Overholt Rye, green chartreuse
Cousin Itt: Apple brandy, St. Feuillien Brown Abbey Ale, espresso
Grandmama: Repasado tequila, Goslings Rum, creme de casis
Thing T. Thing: Sobeiski vodka, violet liqueur, pastis
Through the end of the month, the cocktails will be on the menu at $12, but you can "trick or treat" here on Oct. 30-31 and get them for $5.
