Cathal and Meshelle Armstrong are staples on the Washington, D.C. culinary scene. Their EatGoodFood group operates six popular restaurants and bars in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, including the upscale bistro and award-winning tasting room of Restaurant Eve; and the glamorous speakeasy PX, where a few years ago mixologist Todd Thrasher introduced the well-made cocktail to the District.
The group’s latest venture is turn of the century circus meets vaudeville. But Society Fair’s culinary amalgamation is decidedly more than a three-ring spectacle; it’s part wine bar, restaurant, bakery, butcher, gourmet market, coffee shop, cheese shop and spice bar.
3 parts Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey
2 parts Sweet Vermouth
1 ½ parts Cherry syrup
1 ½ parts Cranberry juice
Dash of Simple syrup (optional)
Combine all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake for 60 seconds. Strain neat into a martini glass. Garnish with a black cherry.
This drink was sent to us by the mixologists at Kilbeggan, and it was created to celebrate halfway-day, the point halfway to the next St. Patrick’s Day, which occurred earlier this week.
