The most Instagrammable beverages at the Chicago Roastery

The Starbucks Reserve® Roastery Chicago is sure to exceed expectations in many ways — including the delicious, eye-catching and Instagram-worthy beverages crafted and served throughout the building’s five floors. From the Arriviamo Cocktail Bar to the Experiential Coffee Bar, the Chicago Roastery has a unique line up of new and exciting beverages to sip, enjoy — and snap! 

Union Stock

The Union Stock is a thoroughly original cocktail with flavors of deep spice and smoke. Starbucks Reserve® Barrel-Aged Cold Brew is mixed with Cappelletti, Rabarbaro Sfumato, Luxardo Amaro Abano, Rhine Hall Grappa and lemon peel to make every sip as delicious as the last.

Smoked Cold Fashioned

Looking to add some drama to your Cold Brew coffee? Cold Brew, simple syrup and aromatic bitters, applewood smoked à la minute and garnished with an orange peel and Luxardo cherry is a show-stopping beverage.

Roastery Boilermaker

Starbucks shandy-like take on the classic Boilermaker with a sidecar of Rhine Hall Beirschnaps. Made with Starbucks Cold Brew, Koval Four Grain Whiskey, Malört, Combier Pamplemousse, honey syrup, Fever Tree Club Soda, Bittermens Hopped Grapefruit Bitters, pink grapefruit juice, lemon juice, grapefruit wheel and salt tincture. This elevates the classic Chicago drink in a way you would never expect! Because you’re not a true Chicagoan until you’ve tasted Malört.

Lake Shore

Inspired by icy paletas, this taste of Chicago summer is good all year round. This cocktail, exclusively available at the Chicago Roastery, is made with Teavana® Zen Clouds Oolong, El Tesoro Añejo Tequila, mango yogurt syrup, lime juice, lime zest and sea salt tincture, all of which surround a mango popsicle dropped in the cocktail. Take a sip and be transported to the warm weather, no matter what season it is.

Pour Over Bijou

The Pour Over Bijou is an ode to Chicago architecture — particularly the Louis Sullivan jewel-box style — and was inspired by the craft of the coffee pour over brewing method. Bright, herbaceous, and earthy, the definitive Chicago pour over cocktail is made with Starbucks Reserve Coffee combined with Nikka Coffey Gin, Carpano Bianco Vermouth, green chartreuse and liqueur Strega.

Siphon Coffee Flight

The science and theater — not to mention flavor — of the siphon brewer is an eye-catching experience. Witness one of coffee’s most dynamic moments in this dazzling sensory experience.


Two shots of espresso are poured over our nitrogen-infused fior di latte (sweet cream) gelato, creating the best expression of a velvety treat with beautiful layers of gelato and espresso swirling together.

Minted Cold Brew

A refreshing take on a favorite cold coffee drink takes form in the Minted Cold Brew. The smooth coffee is shaken with mint syrup and garnished with fresh mint to leave you feeling hydrated and refreshed.

Chocolate Bicerin

Freshly pulled espresso is artfully layered with sumptuous, thick-drinking chocolate and vanilla-bean crema, for a lush, dreamy beverage so decadent, you must use a spoon to revel in every rich drop.
