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:

Vodka Mortini
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.

Do they still have the gratis filet mignon mini sandwiches at happy hour? I used to stop in all the time when I worked in the building.

Pagan Marbury - the mini filet mignon sandwiches are no longer offered at Morton's, but now you can get ANYTHING from their new Bar Bites menu for just $4 during happy hour and late night times!

I love that bars are adding these features. The cocktails sound yum.

Morton's bar is one of our faves - they're on speed dial. Call ahead: "We're on our way, and we'll take two Godiva chocolate bombs in the bar." We arrive (at the CT Ave location), and "Damian" (don't think that's his real name) has our drinks ready. He wins points b/c he remembers that I, the girl, take my scotch neat.
