Sure, lots of restaurants may brew their own beer, age cocktails in barrels, and serve drinks with immaculately created ice cubes, so how will Homaro Cantu differentiate Ing? We learned a few details about the food last week of his latest project in the West Loop, and today we finally got to read a little about the drinks. Apparently he’s planning on distilling alcohol in shop, but don’t expect to be drinking vodka. Talking to Inc., Cantu said, “Imagine if you had pad thai for dinner and took all of the ingredients and put them in a distilling pot to make pad thai liquor—to create a pad thai martini!” While it might sound slightly crazed, this is the the same man that created the edible menu, so we are putting nothing past him. We are excited. [Inc.com]
