From a press release:

“Penn Social, DC’s hotspot for fun, and Soupergirl, the District’s delicious local soup company, are excited to announce our partnership to bring you “Boozy Gazpacho”, filling a much needed niche in DC.

Through September, Penn Social will be serving up two funky and delicious flavors: “Tipsy Tomato Fresca,” a classic tomato gazpacho mixed with Rogue Spruce Gin, and “Your Peach is on Fire,” a savory peach gazpacho combined with spicy Absolut Peppar Vodka (virgin versions available).

Penn Social will have Happy Hour tastings of our collaboration soups this upcoming Thursday, 8/27 and Friday, 8/28 from 4-7 PM. Free samples and coupons for purchases will be provided. More information on the events can be found at facebook.com/thesoupergirl and facebook.com/pennsocialdc. Full menus for both restaurants can be found at thesoupergirl.com and pennsocialdc.com.

Once summer comes to a close, Penn Social will begin serving hot Soupergirl soups for the Autumn and Winter. These include seasonal favorites such as West African Peanut Stew, Traditional Indian Mulligatawny, Triple Ginger Butternut Squash, Winter Root Vegetable Chili, Split Pea Rosemary, and many more.

Penn Social, located in the heart of Penn Quarter at 801 E Street NW, regularly features live music, Trivia Tuesdays, and Wednesday game nights. Happy hour is every day from 4 – 7pm. Soupergirl has two locations in the District; a restaurant in Takoma Park and a to-go spot downtown, located at 1829 M St. NW. Their homemade soups are fresh, local, seasonal, and entirely plant-based.”

    I’ve liked the Soupergirl soups I’ve tried, but the wording/concept “‘Boozy Gazpacho,’ filling a much needed niche in DC” sounds like something out of the Onion.

      lol +1. People must be tired of traditional ways of consuming alcohol.

      • The ridiculous thing about any of these “boozy” food items is that the amount of alcohol you can possibly put in them without totally overpowering the food flavors is so small that really, what’s the point?

        • Kingman Park

          An upcharge of $5 from what would otherwise be a nonalcoholic drink.

          • textdoc

            Heh, true!

  • but wait…

    Isn’t boozy gazpacho just a Bloody Mary? What am I missing here?

    • LOL winner

    • pwrthbb

      Yep. Thought the exact same thing.

  • ColHeist

    They lost me at “Penn Social , DC’s hotspot for fun.”

      Right?

    Probably peak more money than brains. With increasing prices and mediocre offerings I’ve almost stopped going out in DC entirely, and I never order a cocktail– all overpriced and usually terrible compared to what I can whip up at home.

    • no way

      Plenty of places in DC where you can get a good cocktail under 10$.

      I never understand these sorts of comments. If one can’t find a good drink ANYWHERE IN DC or can’t find ANYTHING TO EAT ON 14TH STREET etc etc it says a great deal about how picky and difficult and unadventurous the complainer is and says nothing at all about DC. If you can’t find a drink or a meal you like then the fault is on you for not knowing how to seek out and order the types of things you prefer in a vast city.

    Like the soup, although it’s over priced. This “concept” just sounds like hipster bait, perhaps to sell the soup. perhaps it’s a dumb idea that was suggested by investors.

  • PeakStupidity

    “virgin versions available”

    Yes, you mean normal gazpacho.

  • Anon

    This sounds completely gross. Boozy anything, other than booze itself, is usually not good.
