It’s Cherry Blossom season! The weather may not be cooperating in terms of going to view the lovely cherry blossom trees, but you can still celebrate this popular D.C. festival by indulging in some of the local cheery blossom food and drink specials.
One of the best places for cherry blossom specials is the Ritz Carlton Georgetown, where fancy is the name of the game. To commemorate the 2015 Cherry Blossom Festival, they will be offering the Cherry Blossom Sparkler through April 12, a cocktails selected by staff as the perfect cherry blossom beverage.
Made with vanilla vodka, house made cherry syrup, and Chandon sparkling rose, and garnished with sweet maraschino cherries, it is surprisingly strong for how easy it goes down. I could pretty much drink this bubbly beverage all day long.
For a delicious snack to enjoy with your beverage, treat yourself to the Cherry Blossom French Toast S’mores, served complementary in the Ritz Carlton Georgetown lobby every day at 6:30 for hungry patrons—which includes guests AND locals. Yes, it’s true I found you something free and fancy and fabulous that you probably didn’t know about. I will cheers to myself with my Cherry Blossom Sparkler.
The Cherry Blossom French Toast S’mores is made with two pieces of brioche dunked in French toast batter, grilled, then stuffed with marshmallows, chocolate chips, and graham cracker crumbles. During the cherry blossom season the s’mores will be topped with a sweet cherry compote. It’s so good. So so good. I cannot say that emphatically enough.
What are you waiting for? It’s almost 6:30 p.m. (time is relative), start making your way to Georgetown now!
