Cocktail O’Clock: The Velvet Pith

The Velvet Pith from Bourbon Steak in Washington, D.C. is one of those wintry egg white cocktails, but re-imagined for summer: cointreau, whipped egg whites, freshly grated nutmeg and fresh basil.

More of Bourbon Steak’s summer cocktails, after the jump.


The House Clover Club: housemade seasonal berry gomme syrup, gin, lime juice, egg white.

The P.K.N.Y., a piña colada gone wild: housemade cream of coconut, pineapple juice, orange juice, Chairman’s Reserve rum and Lemon Hart 151 rum.

Verano Heat: silver tequila, passion fruit puree, spicy cane syrup and soda water.
