Eating and Drinking Around Town: The Foraged Cocktail

After a day foraging through the streets of the city, Roadside Food Projects and Atlas Obscura hosted a soiree at The Gibson for ‘foraged’ cocktails—urban elixirs of yesteryear. 

The talented mixologists mixed scattered wineberries and spring ephemerals with the most curious Hendrick’s Gin for a tasting of the Nation’s Capital's very own wild bounty.   

We liked the Rose Marie Collins and the Clover leaf with foraged wineberries.  The event was pretty crowded, so it wasn't that easy to get a drink, but you could tell that they were made with care.  We love all things local so it was cool to taste cocktails with our local wineberries.  Get creative with it and you could do some fun stuff with the fruit at the farmers market.   We'll share some of the cocktails with you on Friday in our Thinking of Drinking article.
