I’ve mentioned before how much I enjoy Cedar restaurant in Penn Quarter, especially for brunch. Cedar’s cocktails are creative and tasty, and even better, the drink names make me smile. After stumbling upon the Ideal Husband, I was told that if I was a fan of things spicy, I might want to try the Hot Husband. Bring it.

They’re really two of a kind. The original (Ideal Husband) recipe was developed by Beverage Manager Matt Perkins in conjunction with The Shakespeare Theater Company, for Oscar Wilde’s play The Ideal Husband. Get it?

The Hot Husband was created as a variation of the original drink, and it quickly became popular at Cedar according to General Manager Mikias Abebayehu. It’s hot because of the house-infused jalapeño pepper vodka, which comes from the rooftop herb garden. It’s Monday, so spice up the evening by making and drinking this cocktail at home. Maybe with that actual hot husband?

Wondering what’s behind the drink in the photo? It’s a white whiskey infusion. Happy drinking!
