The Philosopher’s Walk at The Next Whisky Bar in Washington D.C.
The Next Whisky Bar is a retro whisky bar inside the iconic Watergate Hotel in the nation’s capital. In honor of the area’s famous cherry blossom season this spring, The Philosopher’s Walk is a cocktail that includes Toki Suntory Japanese Whisky, Dolin Blanc Vermouth, Matcha Green Tea Kit Kat syrup, lemon, pink lemon whip and apple blossom flower. The name doubles as a history lesson, referring to the pedestrian path that follows a cherry tree-lined canal between Buddhist temples in Kyoto. Drink and be zen.
