This cocktail is the official cocktail of the National Archives "Spirited Republic" series, and amazing series of lectures curated by DC's own mixologist extraordinaire, Derek Brown. The lectures feature notable drinks historians from around the country, who come in once a week and cover various periods of drinking history in the United States. A terrific lecture series, with a cocktail happy hour before each session. I highly recommend attending as many as you can!
