Happy Hour: What Can I Get for You?
Jun 15, 2012
A few weeks ago, some of you expressed that the reason you don’t read Happy Hour is because it doesn’t apply to people who don’t make cocktails at home. This is completely understandable.
I often drink at home because I live in a large building and am friends with several of my neighbors, and it’s much easier to take a bottle of Roederer Champagne up to the roof that it is to coordinate a trip to the bar. But my favorite spot in D.C. to go for a cocktail, when I’m not imbibing at home, is Rasika in Penn Quarter.
If you like gin cocktails, this is the spot for you. The menu is populated with gin drinks of all types and tastes. However, since yours truly is hopelessly allergic to gin, I stick to either the infused Woodford Reserve or the Pisco Sour. Yes, a Pisco Sour, at an Indian restaurant, and it’s good.
This is definitely my favorite place to go for cocktails, and it just happens to be within stumbling distance of my home, so that helps. (Not that a lady should ever stumble home, but you know what I mean.)
