Everyone in DC knows, Jose Andres makes a good drink!  Oyamel is hosting a Tequila & Mezcal Festival March 2-15.
La Capital
Complimentary tequila tastings will be held at the restaurant's new Butterfly Bar on March 3rd, 5th and 9th-12th from 4-6 PM.  
Ceviche Veracruz

PicaPepino made of Milagro Silver, Combier L'Original, cucumber, serrano and lemon.  This refreshing cocktail pairs especially well with the lighter seafood dishes such as Ceviche Veracruz, lightly poach squid and striped bass with tomato sauce, fried capers, green olives, tomatoes and pearl onions.

Panuchos de pavo con salsa ciltomate
Specialty cocktail creations also include Media naranja made from Didencio Clasico, sour orange, habanero, egg white and bitters.  This drink pairs perfectly with the savory Panuchos de pavo conslsa chiltomate, braised turkey leg cooked in salsa on a bean stuff and fried tortilla and topped with a sour orange habanero salsa, pickled onions and avocados.
Lomito de puerco en adobo - local pork tenderloin with
guajon chile sauce, tomatoes, asparagus and green onion
