I drank this on Capitol Hill: The Paulownia at Bar Vacilando

Jack was at the counter of Bar Vacilando as a ray of sunlight streaming in from the skylight, beckoned CHS inside. An avid hiker, backpacker, and long distance cycler, Jack just returned from Vesper Peak in the North Cascades. The chosen drink was the Paulownia, named for the large tree on the patio. Botanical Gin, shaken with Green Chartreuse, muddled lime, and agave is strained into a highball and topped with a touch of soda, a mint leaf, and lime wedge. Refreshing as a vesper breeze.

I drank this on Capitol Hill is a semiregular photographic tour of some of Capitol HIll’s best cocktails and libations. Have a suggestion for something we should drink? Let us know in comments.
