Happy Monday: Againn for Moonshine (DC)

[ 0 ] June 14, 2010 |

I thought moonshine was prohibited?! Well Againn evidently wants to make it legal with the introduction of its summer cocktails: Homemade Moonshine Iced Tea and Prohibitions Punches. Created by beverage director, Caterina Abbruzzetti and Mixologist JP Caceres, Againn’s Moonshine Iced Tea blends moonshine from a local distillery with fresh herbs and spices like Black Berry Leaf, Organic Lemongrass, Organic Rosehips and Organic Barks. Names like “Easy Day”, “Happy Tummy” and “Hibiscus High” makes me want to break the rules and try the old school teas. For $10 a pop, you can get your fix too. Prohibition punches round out the list with the “Bootleggers” (*Lemon Juice, Simple Syrup, Cassis, Old Tom Gin and Muddled Majoram) and “Moonshine” (*Lemon Juice, Falernum, Gin, Raspberry Puree and Club Soda with Muddled Sage) for $11.

Whether your team is winning or your bets are going down the drain, drinks are in order this week. Old school sounds good right about now…especially since our earnings are slowly dwindling down the drain with every shot…suppose you can guess where we put our money…I digress and am now headed to get some Moonshine…Cheers!
