Sno-Cones, Sangria and Summer Kisses

In Washington, D.C., Art and Soul at The Liaison Capitol Hill Hotel introduced a Sno-Cone cocktail menu — adult versions of that favorite summertime street treat. The libations feature crushed ice layered with spirits, seasonal fruits and even vegetables. The cocktails, designed by GM and Beverage Manager Jay Poblador, are served in cone-shaped Martini glasses and include the Savannah (vodka, African nectar tea and peaches), the Laurel Park (gin, St-Germain, sparkling rosé, cucumbers and strawberries), and the Rehoboth (cachaça, pineapple and spearmint in a smoked black salt-rimmed glass). The drinks are half-price from 4 – 7 p.m., Monday through Thursday.

Whisk Group LLC, also in the D.C. area, is opening AGAINN Tavern in Rockville, Md. Beverage Director Caterina Abbruzzetti is overseeing the beverage program, which includes six seasonal cocktails featuring fresh ingredients. Two staples are the Lady Macbeth (Hendrick’s Gin, St-Germain, lemon, rosewater and egg white) and Pimm’s Cup No. 13 (Pimm’s No. 1 with a choice of any spirit, English cucumber, mint, lemon, ginger, Angostura bitters and seltzer). AGAINN also features reservable oak Scotch whisky lockers.

Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants launched its annual Summer Playground promotion, available through Sept. 10, featuring two themed cocktails: Mischief (vodka, fresh lime juice, honey syrup and a Laphroaig finish) and Summer Kiss (vodka, Pimm’s, assorted fruit and ginger beer). Kimpton is jumping on the Sangria bandwagon with its Sangria Happy Hour, featuring house-made peach-nectarine Sangria.
