Infused vodka has become increasingly popular, and with that popularity comes the requests from patrons to find the most unique flavors and unusual combinations. There are a plethora of infused vodkas and in the city of Chicago, and bars and restaurants offer almost any flavor that can be found. Here are the five best bars with infused vodka in Chicago.
Russian Tea Time

The Russian Tea Time restaurant makes interesting and delicious infused vodkas. They make incredible infused vodka with horseradish… nothing short of impressive. Most of their infused vodkas are quite innovative. They also make house-infused vodka shots, which go down unbelievably smooth. In summary, they have over a dozen house flavored infused vodkas. Especially be sure to try their lime and mint infused vodka — it has a great scent and a terrific flavor.

Autre Monde Café
6727 W. Roosevelt Road
Berwyn, IL 60402

The Autre Monde Café is a wonderful restaurant.  But for those who are looking for a great house infused vodka, it is a must-visit venue.  Their tangerine infused vodka is hard to beat.  Be careful, the cocktail goes down smoothly and will sneak up quickly.

Sepia
123 N. Jefferson St.
Chicago, IL 60661
(312) 441-1920

Sepia’s has created a new twist on the Bloody — Mary, the bacon infused vodka Bloody Mary that is out of this world.  The rim coated in smoked sea salt makes this infused vodka drink one of the most interesting drinks. This Bloody Mary has just enough spice to make it perfect. The Sepia Mule was just as good as the Bloody Mary. They make the Mule with ginger beer, ginger infused vodka, and lime. It is safe to say that the infused vodka (and infused gin) are a major reason to visit Sepia.

The raspberry and citrus infused vodka is perfectly refreshing and flavorful. The Bad Apple also has several infused flavors that most likely will not be found at other restaurants or bars. For example, they have a habanero infused vodka cocktail that is one-of-a-kind.
