It’s that time of year again, so soon! The time where we come together with family and friends to celebrate the year and what’s to come. Most of us would prefer to add a few holiday themed cocktails in the mix; so for those of ‘us’, I’m here to tell you where to go for a few of my favorite festive drinks! The season is almost over so get to it!
Service Bar: Baked Apple & Pear Gin & Tonic; made up of equally great ingredients that create an even balance and mix well together. The recipe includes Gin, apple/pear tonic, clear lime, and soda. For only $10, I promise you won’t be disappointed! 928 U Street NW
Miracle on 7th Street: This place is amazing! It’s definitely a must-see! There’s a possibility that the line will be trailing down the street so I’d suggest a mid-week rendezvous. I recommend their rum ham, made with a Christmas Rum blend, pineapple Bud Light syrup, and lime. For $13 you can enjoy great drinks and an enjoyable experience. 1843 7th Street NW
The Gibson: Let me begin by saying that this place is a hidden gem. Any drink from The Gibson will have you blown away, however, I’d recommend starting with the Cat’s Meow. The name alone tickles me; made up of red wine, Cruzan Black Strap Rum, vanilla, lime, and champagne. (You might only need one of these ;)) 2009 14th Street NW
Although it’s slowly coming to an end, I hope everyone has an enjoyable holiday season with your loved ones! Drink up, be merry, and tell them Dana sent you!
