If you are looking for a fresh, filling meal and a few cocktails after work, Ping Pong is the place to be this summer. I had the pleasure of attending the unveiling of the summer menu at the Ping Pong location in Dupont Circle. The restaurant offers a central location, smooth refreshing drinks, and food with the freshest of ingredients. Before partaking in the new summer cocktails, I must admit I was never a fan of dark liquor. Matter of fact, in the past, if bourbon was the only offer, I politely passed. However, I am a new woman. Ping Pong has cleverly paired Jim Beam Red Stag (Cherry Bourbon) with a host of other flavors to create the perfect martini compilation. The Asian Manhattan is the perfect happy hour cocktail because it is smooth, rich, and has just the right amount of kick for the end of a long day. It was so well flavored, I found myself going back for seconds. Ping Pong has made me a true bourbon believer. This drink paired with the shrimp dumplings and cool breeze on the patio could not have presented a better combination. I am looking forward to partaking in another cocktail adventure here (*very) soon.
