Drinks

At Carnivale, we provide Chicagoans with a complete taste experience, and that includes serving up drinks that complement the diverse flavors of our cuisine.

Cocktails

Our cotton candy cocktail is our signature drink, though we also offer a variety of other cocktails including margaritas, caipirinhas, and award-winning mojitos.

Rum

Rum dates back to the early 17th century. Using sugarcane or molasses, it is distilled and aged similar to tequila.

Notes of vanilla, coconut, oak A powerful rum, it has plenty of character. Its mahogany color shows off the sweetness you get on the noseCask-aged for 9 years, this rum shows off the delicate orange caramel notes on the nose followed by a palate of toasted nuts and herbs

Cachaca

Cachaca is different from Rum because it is made solely from sugarcane juice. It is the most popular distilled alcoholic beverage in Brazil. Cachaca is used most often in Caipirinhas.

Tequila

Tequila is a Blue Agave based spirit made only in Mexico. Mexican law states that tequila can only be produced in the state of Jalisco and limited regions in the states of Guanajuato, Michoacán, Nayarit and Tamaulipas. We serve only 100% Blue Agave Tequila. Salud!

Blanco
Tequila Blanco is the purest form of tequila. It is generally a clear, un-aged spirit that is bottled directly from distillation; it can be aged up to 59 days.

Reposado
Reposado means “rested” and is best enjoyed neat or in margaritas. This tequila can age in barrels from 60 to 364 days.

Añejo
Añejo Tequila is aged in the same barrels as the Reposado. Añejo Tequila can be aged from 1-3 years.

Extra Añejo
This is the rarest and finest of all tequilas. Aged for a minimum of 3 years in oak barrels. This tequila is enjoyed best by sipping neat.

Mezcal
Carnivale brings you a collection of fine, rare, unblended mezcals made by individual family producers in tiny remote villages scattered throughout the state of Oaxaca, Mexico.

Wine and Beer

Our menu highlights many wines from South America and Spain, but also features wines from around the world — the only litmus test for our wine list is how well it complements our cuisine. We also offer beer from both local and international brewers.

No matter the occasion, we offer a diverse slate of beverages that reflects that tastes of connoisseurs in Chicago and across the globe!
