Go sip Cal
Cal Worthington, Bottle & Barlow
It's a cocktail and a show when you order the Cal Worthington ($11) over at Bottle & Barlow, the art-deco bar and barbershop at the Warehouse Artist Lofts. The drink is based on bonded bourbon and sports a clever backbone of crème de cacao at the end—as fine a use for this spirit as I have yet to see, by the way. The show consists of a swath of citrus peel given a hard squeeze across a match flame. A fragrant burst of essential oil and fire seasons the surface of the drink for a glorious finish. 1120 R Street, http://bottleandbarlow.com.
