The Round Robin Bar at The Willard Hotel, Washington, DC. 

12 Dec

  

 
Screaming in at 112.8 proof, this Wild Turkey Rare Breed Manhattan, was an interesting way to end a day in Washington D.C.  The Round Robin Bar is a fantastic combination of both ideal location within the capital and historical vibe.  The Willard Hotel, in which the bar resides, was the host to a meeting that started on February 4, 1861, and was the  last attempt to get the North and South to come to a peaceful resolution of differences before the Civil War. 

This drink may have helped get a better result at the meeting, as it was full to the lip of the glass with liquid jetfuel.  I requested the mixture, and in hindsight it was probably too high temp for the drink.  The Wild Turkey, while a very nicely constructed bourbon, has too much screamin’ rebel in it for the vermouth, bitters and three little cherries to handle.
