Nothing says “summer!” like a refreshing iced cocktail on a warm day. Here at Capella Washington, D.C., Georgetown, our bartenders at The Rye Bar and our Rooftop Bar and Lounge are especially known for their delicious and creative creations. In my opinion, you can do no wrong when it comes to ice cold beverages during the summer, but I wanted to try something unique and different than what I typically make at home. I knew just the person in The Rye Bar to go to for an easy and fun recipe.
Bartender Andrew always knows just what to suggest and this time he didn’t hesitate in offering a Gin Cobbler Cocktail. As soon as I tried it, I knew I wanted to serve it at my summer cookout. Fortunately, our bartenders love to share and I can now pass the delicious recipe along to you.
Gin Cobbler Cocktail
1½ ounces Gin (The Rye Bar uses London Dry)
½ ounce Orange Curacao (The Rye Bar uses Pure Ferrand)
¼ ounces Simple Syrup

1. Combine all liquors in a julep cup.
2. Lightly muddle the orange and lemon wheel slices together.
