Sip: Posada

I am totally digging the cocktails coming from Circolo‘s mixologist, Salvatore Tafuri! I think this combo is killer and thanks to the fabulous folks over at The New Potato for sharing this recipe; we are able to mix this one up at home!  Cheers!

1oz of ginger liquor (domaine de canton)

Cherry-Blossom-Themed Perks from Washington D.C. Hotels 

Select D.C hotels have come up with some super fun perks!  Cherry Blossoms are at their peak this week so if you’re planning a trek into the city consider a stop at one of the fine hotels nearby. Take the above photo for example. Cherry Blossoms never looked so delicious at the Mandarin Oriental Washington D.C. Ever want a branch of your very own cherry blossoms? Guests staying at the Liason Capitol Hill actually get to take one home!  How about sipping a specially blended Cherry Blossom Green Tea? Visitors to the Park Hyatt Washington D.C. are able to do just that. For more Cherry Blossom specialties, check out Condé Nast Traveler. Happy travels!
