This sexy speakeasy is well-hidden, and rightly so, as this is where one of the most well-informed mixologists on the DC cocktail scene, Derek Brown protégé Jon Harris mixes. A custom-made beet-green peppercorn gelato flavor from gelateria Dolcezza give the grown up ice cream float cocktail Slightly Odd Duck a peppery sweetness that offsets the herbaceous gin and balsam fir tincture. Elements you don’t often see successfully incorporated in a cocktail, like charred cinnamon or Benedictine, are handled with ease by Harris, and make you glad you took the leap of faith.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Slightly Odd Duck: Gin, Mango Gomme, Balsam Fir Tincture, Fever Tree Bitter Lemon Soda, and Beet-Green Peppercorn Ice Cream
  • # Benedicta: Bénédictine, Campari, Grapefruit Juice, Sandalwood Tincture, and Fever Free Tonic Water Slightly Odd Duck: Gin, Mango Gomme, Balsam Fir Tincture, Fever Tree Bitter Lemon Soda, and Beet-Green Peppercorn Ice Cream + Click image to enlarge
