Longman & Eagle is a contemporary take on a traditional Chicago inn—offering considered, inspired drinking, eating and sleeping options—located in the Logan Square neighborhood in Chicago, USA.
Not So Fast… 12
—Very Old Barton Bonded, Coconut, Cinnamon, Fresh Lime
Holding on to the last days of summer can be bittersweet. While you cope with the changing of the seasons, enjoy this shake up of summer and fall flavors. Tropical coconut blends with roasted cinnamon all the while being balanced out by our favorite high rye bourbon. It’s not too late to get that base tan, or is it?
A Very Easy Death 12
—Benchmark Bourbon, Cherry Heering, Yellow Chartreuse, Fresh Lime
This brightly refreshing pick-me-up balances a touch of sweetness with pleasant acidity, but be careful—it is libel to go down a little too smoothly and leave you wanting another. And another. A few too many of these would be a very easy death, indeed.
Uncle Jim Lupinsky 12
—J. Rieger Kansas City Whiskey, Lustau East India Sherry, Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao, Gilka Kummel, Demerara, Syrup
It’s sweet, but just like Uncle Jim, not too sweet. Balanced with earthy baking spices and orange, it’s stiff and complex and goes perfect with bizarre conversations about hanging drywall on a yacht. But you should probably just drink one before dinner. Maybe after too.
The Strongest Man Alive 12
—Glenlivet Founders Reserve, Benedictine, Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao, Laphroaig 10, Hopped Grapefruit Bitters
That time has come again, boy-os. When the leaves are changing, the days getting shorter and we all head to the beach one last time to fight the ocean to signal the final days of summer. Ease your woes with this sipper that’ll have you smiling strange. Benedictine and Curaçao flavors play off of Scotch for a taste of a Little Peat. But still a hint of Laphroaig to satiate anyone who’s more of a fan of Big Peat. Resulting in a drink that’s tastier than a Blue Tornado Bar. So enjoy and farewell, my little Vikings.
Persephone’s Punch 12
—Letherbee Gin, Amaro dell’ Etna, Stirrings Pomegranate, Chamomille, Top Note Indian Tonic, Fresh Lemon
Just like Persephone tied to Hades during the months of fall and winter, this cool weather punch is both bitter and sweet. A classic Sicilian Amaro balances out sweet pomegranate while the bubbly fizz of tonic refreshes your palate. A toast to the seasons changing… and then changing back!
The Sichuan Daquiri 12
—Ming River Baijiu, Trois Rivières Agricole, Fresh Lemon
Baijiu, China’s flagship spirit, making it one of the world’s most consumed spirits, is just starting to make its way over to America. Paired here with French West Indies rhum agricole, expect a bright, refreshing, funky take on a classic.
The Herrington 12
—Del Maguey Vida, Braulio Amaro, Cherry Heering, Cherry Bitters
Strong, smokey, and sassy, a little sweet and a little bitter. Just like its namesake, Longman & Eagle’s own, Joshua Herrington.
Longman Manhattan 10
Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon, Punt é Mes, Angostura & Cherry Bitters
The Manhattan is a classic cocktail that will never go out of style and will always remain in the top ten most popular American cocktails.

Buffalo Trace Bourbon, Cherry & Orange & Old Fashioned bitters, Demerara Sugar, Citrus Zest

+ with Blanton’s L&E Barrel Select 16
Wild Turkey 101 Rye, Pierre Ferrand 1840 , Peychaud’s &
Angostura Bitters, Sugar, Letherbee Absinthe
This classic New Orleans cocktail was originally made with cognac but eventually moved to rye whiskey. Ours uses both in order to balance out the spicy and the sweet.
+ with Thomas H. Handy 2017 22
Michter’s US*1 Bourbon, Campari, L.N. Mattei Cap Corse Rouge
This Prohibition era cocktail owes some of the credit for its creation to the Volstead act, the passage of which put thousands of American bartenders to work. One such bartender was New York expat Harry MacElhone, who made his way first to England and then to France, where he ran Harry’s New York Bar in Paris. It was there that MacElhone would be introduced to spirits that most Americans had never heard of in the 1920’s, such as Campari, and it was there that he would invent this enduring classic.
Whiskey Sour 10
Maker’s Mark, Lemon, Sugar, Egg White
We do nothing to make this classic weird or different. We just try to make it the best way we know how. Requires a longer shake. Thank your bartender.
+ with Maker’s Mark L&E Private Select 2016 14
At L&E, we're lucky enough to have access to some of the best bourbon available, some would cry foul of putting one of these rare spirits in a cocktail, but we fall back on our tried and true motto "whiskey for your mouth...not for our shelf!"

Out with a Bang 25
George T Stagg, 2017, Oscar 697 Vermouth Rosso, Angostura Bitters, Luxardo Cherry
This powerful, intense, and highly regarded bourbon is bottled uncut and unfiltered after aging in charred oak for no less than 15 years. We’ve taken our tasting notes for it and combined it with other beautiful ingredients that enhance those flavors and allow them to shine. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the ride.
