From a press release:
“As temperatures hit triple digits in DC, The Royal in LeDroit Park has introduced a new menu of boozy shaved ice cocktails to help Washingtonians beat the heat. Churned from the bar’s vintage Guatemalan ice shaver, four fruit-centric slushies refresh guests, taking creative inspiration from classics like the Negroni and sangria. And the restaurant’s new Executive Chef Anna Miller has revamped the morning and daytime menus for summer, introducing ceviches, grilled meats and other bright, seasonal fare.

Bar Manager Lee Carrell has concocted four unique shaved ice cocktails for summer (ranging from a reasonable $8-$11) such as the Arctic Sunrise with vodka, lychee, Cappelletti and lime; the Tiki-inspired Trade Winds with dark rum, pineapple, lime and cinnamon; the house Sangria made with wine, brandy, fruit and spices. He’s also offering a Negronicello on special, a citrusy spin on the classic Negroni with Campari, Dolin Dry Vermouth and limoncello ($8). These will be available through summer. Classic cocktails are also available on shaved ice by request. (more…)
