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

  

 
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.

Wild Turkey 101 at SYC

  Another masterpiece by Pete at Sarasota Yacht Club with good old Wild Turkey 101. Ah….  Drinking at the hours you shouldn’t.  Fantastic.   

The SYC does a great deal to make its members happy.  Making note of what everyone’s likes and dislikes, and then more importantly putting that knowledge into service is what makes it so nice to make it a sophisticated hang out.
