Capitol Hill’s PoliTiki bar is back in the basement Elixir Bar at Barrel after 20 years. The theme will reflect the current political climate with mugs featuring the faces of Donald Trump, Barack Obama and Steve Bannon. Beverage Director Parker Girard has created specialty Tiki cocktails for each of the signature mugs. The Regal Hawaiian, served in the Obama mug, features Barr Hill Gin, white rum, pineapple, lemon, orgeat and passionfruit and is inspired by the signature cocktail of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel. The Suffering Bannon is a mix of bourbon, aged rum, lime, ginger beer, angostura, served frozen and the Traitor Don’s Mai Tai features aged rhum agricole, Jamaican rum, peach, mint, honey, orgeat, lime and absinthe. Tiki classics like the Painkiller, a frozen cocktail with rum, rrange, pineapple, coconut and nutmeg and the Scorpion Bowl, which serves 3-4, with dry Gin, white rum, Spanish brandy, orgeat, demerata, orange and lime round out the menu.
