Stella’s Sports Bars—in the space that briefly housed the Empty Bottle in the early 90s—is an interesting hybrid of sports bar, liquor store, and Polish dive. Owner Stella Grace will be happy to help you navigate the bar’s selection of exotic liquors, which are also available for takeout. Try a shot of Old Krupnik honey vodka with an Okocim beer chaser, or Zubrowka bison grass vodka mixed with apple juice. 773-384-0077.
If not available at any of your local liquor stores, probably available at some in Chicago.
Krupnik is an ancient Polish liqueur which traces its roots back to the 1300's. As such, it has been a traditional drink in Poland for centuries.
Ooops, I am Polish but I didn`t know about it ... Traditional??? hahahaha Certainly we didn`t drink krupnik in high school when we wanted to get stoned... ;D ;D ;D ;D Pure dry crystal clear vodka was more popular...
Krupnik (pronounced kroop-NEEK), is made of natural wild bee's honey gathered in forests, and exotic spices.
hmmm, again, this info makes me wonder where I have lived for the past 40 years...... ;D ;D ;D ;D I thought it is mead that is made from honey...
To my knowledge of a Polishman, krupnik is just a kind of sweetened vodka. The above info is certainly meant for a more successful advertising campaign.
