*Johnna’s tip: Vodka and politics. Fun times! This presidential election year has introduced so many new things and changes to the United States that a toast is definitely in order;-) In keeping with the lingo “party politics”, Svedka Vodka has unleashed the “700 Billion Martini” which is Svedka’s year long invitation to Democrats, Republicans, and Independents to put the “party” back in party politics. Shake it up for your guests on Inauguration Day to celebrate or check out these District bars to have a taste:
