One of the many things I love about blogging (and living in Chicago!) is the opportunity to meet and collaborate with talented, creative and fun girls. With a solid month of summer still left for us to enjoy in the city, I thought I'd ask some of my favorite local bloggers and stylish friends their go-to spot to sip a summer cocktail in Chicago. Whether you're visiting the city or call Chicago home, each of these places are worth a visit — and represent a good mix of location, price and vibe. If you're a local reader, do you have any personal favorites in Chicago to add to this list? Cheers!
