Legally Drinking...
(As seen in my monthly cocktail column in Northern Virginia Magazine)

Legal Eagles and outlaws, alike, voluntarily surrender to temptation at the freshly minted Trademark Bar. Nestled into Old Town’s new Westin Alexandria Hotel, in Virginia, the wine bar is named for its proximity to the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, and features some creative cocktails playing off that concept. Where better to mull over your latest invention, or consort with your lawyer, than perched upon a barstool?

Refreshing Allegation
2 ounces Patron Silver tequila
1 1⁄4 ounces fresh lime juice
1ounce white cranberry juice
Cilantro Sprig

Muddle cilantro in bottom of mixing tin. Add ice and remaining ingredients, then shake well and strain into ice-filled highball glass. Garnish with cilantro sprig and lime wedge.
