National Martini Day

  • Mockingbird Hill 1843 7th St NW Washington, DC, 20001 United States (map)

They don’t call it the King of Cocktails for nothing. A Martini, properly made, is everything a cocktail should be: singular, complex and a whole that is far greater than the sum of its parts. It’ll also make you forget every bright neon concoction you’ve ever tasted that had “-tini” tacked to the end of its name. To celebrate National Martini Day at Mockingbird Hill, we’ll be serving a classic 50/50 Dry Gin Martini, as well as the Flame of Love Martini, a variation that uses vodka, Fino sherry and a flamed orange peel. Derek Brown will be behind the bar from 5:00pm-7:00pm, stirring up what he calls his favorite cocktail, and what GQ called the Best Martini in America.
