Washington, DC's 18 Most Iconic Drinks

View as Map

While last month we took a look at the most iconic dishes in all of Washington, now it's time to look at the most iconic — not to mention boozy, slushy and refreshing — drinks that restaurants and bars are serving all across DC. Round Robin's mint julep makes a reappearance along with the JW Marriott's rickey to represent the historical icons, while newcomer Fiola is already making its mark on the negroni landscape.

Did we miss your favorite? No worries, just nominate it in the comments.
