April Showers Bring May Flower-Inspired Cocktails!

While we love a good fireside sipper, we don't know anyone in this town who's not ready for a refreshing warm-weather cocktail...whether or not it includes a kitschy mini-umbrella. And, while April showers bring May flowers, there are also some floral-inspired cocktails popping up, too.
But don't worry — these floral accents are subtle and come from ingredients like lavender-infused syrup, hibiscus-flavored spirits, and yes, even the petals themselves. And while you can't get these flower concoctions delivered, you can order 'em at one of these six popular Chicago restaurants. So, click through and pick your favorite.
