Winter warmer

Seeing Red, Amaro Bistro & Bar

Even the most winter-loving among us sometimes need a healthy dose of sunshine to ward off seasonal doldrums. Amaro Bistro & Bar’s Seeing Red ($10) is a bright mix of gin, spiced blood orange, lemon, sugar and red sparkling wine. Served on the rocks in a Collins glass with a giant orange wheel garnish, it’s fizzy but not fussy, polished but playful. It looks and tastes like what Willy Wonka would have served the parents to keep them happy, and if that doesn’t make you smile, then just order another. 1100 R Street,
