July is officially Rickey Month in Washington, DC. To celebrate the city’s native drink, Founding Farmers is participating in the DC Craft Bartenders Guild’s annual rickey competition. Sample our two original rickeys through the end of July for $12 each.
The Dillinger, created by FF mixologist Dylan, combines Hendrick’s Gin, fresh dill, cucumber, St. Germain, and a splash of Riondo Prosecco. Also competing for the title of DC’s best is Chad’s Whiskey Rickey, made with Woodford Reserve, honey, lime, and curacao (pictured at right).
Download the official punchcard, sample five rickeys from participating venues, and get free admission to the Rickey Party at Jack Rose Saloon on August 5. Be sure to stop by either of our locations and taste these refreshing libations for yourself!
