DC Gets Its Holiday Cocktail On

Reporting for the Museum of the American Cocktail, an all-star ensemble of DC's bartenders (the likes of Gina Chersevani of PS7s, JP Caceres of Bourbon Steak, Jon Harris of the Gibson, Katie Nelson of the Columbia Room and Dan Searing of Room 11) convened at PS7s for a holiday cocktail seminar. Let me tell you, we've got some creative minds and palates in this city! A "Sweet Potato-Ginger Sparkler" with a roasted oolong marshmallow, "Fall in a Cup" with butter-infused elderflower liqueur. A tequila, sherry and clementine punch and a Tom and Jerry. I think we've got the beginnings of a new holiday carol.

DC Celebrates Repeal Day in Style

December 3 marked the 4th Repeal Day party hosted by the DC Craft Bartender's Guild. I was there on behalf of the Museum of the American Cocktail to report on the grand affair. If there was any reason to go, it was for Chantel Tseng's "Darmoney Sucker Punch" in a claw-foot tub.

Dear Readers,

I apologize for my long absence from District Cocktail. My wife and I were busy all summer preparing for the arrival of our son who was born on October 15. We are having a glorious time caring for him and welcoming him to the world. I promise to be back on the writing-block soon. You can still follow my drinking adventures in 140-character segments on my Twitter feed @DCcocktails. In the meantime, I will also be reporting for the Museum of the American Cocktail.
