Three Dots and a Year

three dots and a dash
Three Dots and a Dash turned 1 year old on July 31, and, Paul McGee and company are throwing a party tonight to celebrate. Starting at 5pm, the first 150 customers will receive free tote bags and t-shirts, and everyone after that will get temporary tattoos and sunglasses. McGee will be behind the bar, introducing five new cocktails:

  • Aikau Aikau -- light Carribean rum, overproof Guyanese rum, blue curacao, falernum, pineapple, lemon


  • BËSK I Ever Had -- rhum agricole blanc, Letherbee BËSK, pineapple, coconut, creme de menthe


  • Ruby Mae's Surfin' Bird -- dark Bermuda rum, dark Jamaican rum, Campari, ruby port, pineapple, lime, passionfruit


  • Spinning in Infinity -- gin, Jamaican rum, light Carribean rum, navy strength Jamaican rum, pineapple, honey, peach, mint


  • Tic Tac Taxi overproof Jamaican rum, coconut, lime, lemon, passionfruit

The bar will also debut two new glasses, the Rum Barrel and the Fiji Mermaid, which will be available for purchase for $20, and new seahorse swizzle sticks.

Three Dots and a Dash has plenty to celebrate. In its first year of business, McGee won Best Mixologist in the Reader's Best of Chicago awards, the Painkiller No. 3 was one of the Five Best New Cocktails in Chicago magazine's Best of Chicago issue, and the bar was named Best New American Cocktail Bar at the 2014 Spirited Awards. Can't wait to see what the next year has in store.
