Have a bite at Morton’s bar…
I just love meeting up for a small bite and a cocktail at the end of the day. Sipsters in the DC area have a fun new option where you can do just that!
Morton’s has a new “Bar Bites” menu (only available at the bar) in the District on Connecticut Ave, over the bridge at Tyson’s Corner and Reston, VA and up the road in Bethesda, MD.
A couple of their drinks are highlighted, below:
3 oz. vodka
1 large pitted green olive
1 tsp Saga blue cheese
Shake vodka, with ice, 15 times. Strain into chilled martini glass. Stuff the olive with blue cheese and use as garnish.
Morton’s Palm Beach Infusion
3 oz. Infused Vodka (recipe follows)
1 tblsp pineapple juice
1 tblsp Monin cherry syrup
1 fresh mint leaf, for garnish
Shake vodka, pineapple juice, and cherry syrup with ice cubes, 15 times. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with the mint leaf.
Infused Vodka (for Palm Beach Infusion)
Makes about 1/2 liter
1 pineapple, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1/2 liter vodka
4 to 5 fresh mint sprigs (small bunch)
Put pineapple slices in large jar (or other container) with a lid. Pour in vodka and add mint sprigs. Cover tightly and set aside, at room temperature, for 24 hours. Strain the vodka and discard the fruit. Refrigerate up to 10 days.
