I got around to listening to Friday’s episode of the excellent Dinner Party Download this morning on the way to work and was tickled to hear that this week’s history-inspired cocktail is the Hattie Bo Baddy created by Todd Thrasher of PX and Restaurant Eve. While I might quibble a bit with DPD choosing an Alexandria-based mixologist to honor the first woman of the Hill (you couldn’t pick someone at least in the D.C. limits? ) it’s hard to complain about getting the skinny on a Thrasher cocktail.

Not that this is a concoction to try at home unless you’re serious. You can find the full recipe at the link for DPD #40, but suffice to say if you’re not willing to spend the thirty minutes to create the components you need for this cocktail (caraway-infused honey syrup) maybe you should just go let Mr Thrasher make you one himself…

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
