Blackberry mojito: Craving mojitos this time of year? Head on down to Ñ, a hip Avondale restaurant/bar from the owners of Folklore and Tango Sur, for a variety of fruit-flavored twists on the classic Cuban highball.
Open Tuesday through Saturday from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m., Ñ offers multiple DJ nights and an intimate setting for enjoying some of the best Argentine food and drinks that Chicago has to offer. While the mojitos come in flavors ranging from pineapple to passionfruit, the blackberry version is the best of the bunch.
As a simple yet enlivening mix of rum, lime, sugar, mint, blackberry juice and a splash of soda water, the $10 blackberry mojito packs enough fruity punch to keep imbibers feeling fresh and energized all night long. 2977 N. Elston Ave., 773-866-9898
