Gaslit Cocktails

June 17th marks the 50th Anniversary of the 1972 break-in of the Democratic National Committee headquarters that led to an explosive exposé in The Washington Post and Nixon’s eventual resignation. In tandem with the infamous burglary's 50th anniversary (and timed with new Starz series Gaslit), Next Whisky Bar is featuring a special cocktail menu dedicated to whistleblowers, freedom of speech, and the power of the press.

The "Whistleblower" is made with a spicy chili pepper tequila, peppercorn agave, Rinomato Scuro, lime juice, and a chili powder rim comes garnished with an actual toy whistle and represents the boldness of coming forward with the truth “and sticking by the story."

The "Post Worthy" is a nod to the newspaper that broke the story with Woodinville whiskey, ginger cordial, lemon juice, basil, and rosewater to signify DC’s famous cherry blossoms.

The barrel-aged "Smoke & Mirror" cocktail, is made with hickory-smoked KI NO BI Kyoto Dry Gin, presented with smoke emanating from a glass cloche, and incorporates yuzu dry vermouth—represents “when the smoke cleared to reveal what really went down behind the scenes with Nixon,” 

Follow the amber glow to The Next Whisky Bar and sip on a cocktail, symbolic of freedom of speech (or all three - we're not one to judge.)
