Featured Cocktail: Unfinished Business
Washington, D.C. has got a serious case of election fever. With the big day less than two months away, restaurants and bars all around the District are creating dishes, drinks and promotions that are inspired by the candidates, the political process and former Presidents.
This hoptail from Bar Dupont is aptly named, as Hillary Clinton still has a lot more to do (and fingers crossed she'll get her chance after November 8.) Rye gives it a nice spicy bite, Guinness adds luxuriously creamy mouth feel, and demerara sugar syrup lends earthy sweetness.
