Cheers! A Trio of Boozy Biden Inaugural Celebration Options

Jack Rose’s Inaugural Cocktail Kit

Cheers to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris! While public in-person activities celebrating the inauguration have been canceled, we know that DCers still love to raise a glass to the occasion.

Here are three of our favorite boozy ways to commemorate Biden’s Big Day:

Jack Rose Dining Saloon introduced its Inaugural Cocktail Kit, which is actually a 4-course menu of drink delights for two (with garnishes and instructions included). The “boozy new deal” starts with a celebratory champagne cocktail — the Ameri-tivo — and goes on with other American-made spirits for a Mint Julep, Cozy by the Fire, and Brandy Alexander. ($75/kit)

Gerrard Street Kitchen’s inaugural cocktail and mocktail libations

Gerrard Street Kitchen is introducing a pair of libations (a cocktail and a mocktail), both colored cobalt blue, to fête the color of the Democratic Party and celebrate the 46th U.S. President. In celebration of the Biden/Harris inaugural festivities, patrons can sip Gerrard Street Kitchens’ We The People and The All-American to pay tribute to President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris and their swearing-in ceremony.

“The martini is an American cocktail; and is the quintessential power drink in a power town,” says Jaime Velasquez, Gerrard Street Kitchen’s Executive Chef, and Director of Food & Beverage. “Our mocktail version is a testament to President-Elect Biden’s teetotaler practices.” And for those celebrating at home, Gerrard Street Kitchen will offer its recipes.

Atlas Brew Works’ Amtrak Joe’s Pilsner and Madam Veep’s IPA

Atlas Brew Works has released a pair of brews – that sold out in moments upon their initial release – but has a second offering that should be available in February. So even if you missed the first release, you can still belatedly sip to the swearing-in with either Amtrak Joe’s Pilsner or Madam Veep’s IPA.

Made in collaboration with and featuring original artwork commemorating the President-elect, Vice President-elect, and the 2021 Inauguration, Amtrak Joe’s Pilsner is a light and refreshing lager brewed with Saaz and Mt. Hood hops, and Madam Veep’s IPA is a hoppy and juicy India Pale Ale brewed with Mosaic and Citra hops.
