Washington DC Foodie Must: Barmini

Barmini by Jose Andres is hands down one of the coolest bars I’ve ever experienced. If you are ever in DC, you must go! My mom and I decided to do the 2-hour cocktail flight experience. Here are just some of the awesome drinks and snacks we had made for us (side note –  I was too busy eating and drinking to get pics of everything, so I did borrow pics off of yelp, all credit is given when due).

Mojito Sphere – White Rum, Mint, Lime. I don’t know if yall remember those icebreakers liquid ice mints that burst in your mouth, but it was like that! IMG_4487


The Highlander – scotch, mezcal, rosemary, and creme de cacao cloud. This on was my absolute favorite.

Cedar and Agave – tequila reposado, benedictine, agave, orange bitters, smoke. They literally burn a cedar plank in front of you and let the smoke accumulate in the glass before pouring in the liquid… you really can taste the smokey cedar, it’s amazing. IMG_4498


Dark Side of the Moon – Old Tom Gin, Creme de Violette, Lemon, Egg White, Citrus Ash
