What is the point of life? Let’s begin today’s blog with an existential question to set the mood. To limit the scope, the point of life will be targeted at how cocktails flow into this answer. Cocktails are a great starting point for any evening or dinner. You know what is better then an appetizer? A liquid appetizer with alcohol, it sets the tone for the evening. In my free time other then working, training for the Boston marathon (and feel free to support the charity I’m running for in the link below), I love eating and drinking with great people. The shared meals and cocktails create a bond of those that were present at the event.

After moving to DC, the only natural progression is to explore all restaurants and cocktails bars. Believe it or not, DC’s scene is awesome. One of the more memorable dinners happened at Gypsy Kitchen. We hit the restaurant with roughly a group of 6 and dived into family style. Our lovely waitress introduced us to an off the menu cocktail that although unnamed, is now known as the Watermelon Delight. A delicious and simple drink that only takes 4 ingredients. A perfect summer drink that hits the spot year-round.
