The weekend is over, which means we’re in need of a drink to help us get over that depressing fact. Today we’re recommending Bearnaise’s spring-like cocktail, Cherry Blossom Fizz, to help you cool down. Make the drink at home with the recipe below, try it at Bearnaise with Chef Spike Mendelsohn’s Cherry Creme Brûlée, or take it with you to enjoy as you walk along the Tidal Basin admiring the beautiful cherry blossoms. That’s a joke. Do not do the latter, please. Happy drinking!
Bearnaise’s Cherry Blossom Fizz Cocktail
1 parts Grey Goose Cherry vodka
½ part St. Germain elderflower liquer
½ part lemon juice
½ part Lillet Rose
2 parts sparkling water

Tricia is a native Washingtonian, born and raised in Columbia Heights. She loves DC so much that she was only able to leave the city for one year after college and immediately came running back. She’s lived in Navy Yard for the last few years and is excited to see all the new restaurants finally moving into the neighborhood. Tricia works in PR during the day, and spends her nights trying out new restaurants in DC with friends or watching The Good Wife, Scandal, Bones and Grey’s Anatomy. A couple of years ago Tricia decided to eat at all of the 100 Very Best Restaurants until she realized she would be old and broke by the time she finished. Unfortunately, part of that fate might still come true due to her obsession with Uber.
