So here goes: We are thankful for new bars and classic cocktails.
The brand new @scotts.dc in Penn Quarter feels like an English home with proper British decor. We opted for a classic vesper as ordered by James Bond himself - except stirred as it should be. Bartender’s selection combined @beefeatergin_us, @titosvodka, and @lillet blanc. Glass was delivered chilled and temperature held quite well. 4/5 🍸 🍸 🍸 🍸
This Saturday & Sunday, when you’re truly restless & maybe a little sick of your family, come to @maxwellparkdc for the @oysteroysterdc popup! @robrubba has got a fantastic menu planned, @maxkuller will be pouring some delicious wines & I’ve got a list of drinks that I’m really psyched about! Good times all around
The Origins of Kombucha:
Kombucha originated approximately 2000 years ago in Asia, during the rule of the Tsin Dynasty in China. As trade improved, kombucha was introduced to Japan, India, and Russia by merchants traveling the Silk Road.
Because of the many health benefits associated with drinking kombucha, the tea quickly became customary in many households across Asia. As a result of its rapid spread, kombucha became known by several different names including Tea Kvass, Mushroom Tea, Miracle Tea, Elixer of Long Life and the Tea of Immortality.
The modern name is said to have originated in Japan around 415 A.D. after a Korean physician by the name of Kombu successfully used the tea to cure the ailing Japanese Emperor, Ingyō. As a result, kombucha became incredibly popular among the Samurai class in Japan, who believed that it was a source of Chi, a revitalizing life force. Samurai warriors would carry flasks of kombucha with them into combat to help revitalize them during battle. ⚔️⚔️
Virux Carre—this is a bitter and strong New Orleans cocktail with equal parts rye and cognac. A big feature of this drink is the dash of Angostura and Peychaud’s bitters as is the tsp. Of Benedictine and a hefty punch of sweet vermouth. Get it at #vermilionoldtowne#drinklocal#dcdrinks
Went to @citywinerydc last night & enjoyed their delicious #dccocktailweek special, the Civic Sunset made with @republicrestoratives Civic Vodka, lemon, rosemary, simple syrup, & topped with City Winery’s Meritage wine
