The finalists have concocted interpretations of D.C's official cocktail, the rickey. Made from gin or whiskey, fresh lime juice, and club soda, the drink was invented in 1883 at Shoomaker's, a long-gone bar that used to be frequented by politicians and journalists. (The J.W. Marriott hotel sits there now.) Competing at 6 p.m. at the Jack Rose Saloon in Adams Morgan are Estadio's Alexandra Nichols' "Riquitita," PS7's Gina Chersevani's "Rapture of the Rickey," Rasika's Jason Strich's "Plum Rickey," Tabard Inn's Chantal Taseng's "August Rickey," The Passenger's Julia Hurst's "Rhubarbra Streisand," and Tryst's David Frtizler's "Summer Lovin' Rickey."
Admission is $10 and includes a free rickey, which may or may not be fine, but which certainly will not have us singing some annoying song.
