King of Kitsch returns with “Camp Iwannawhiskey” at Southern Efficiency

1841 7th Street, NW

Fortunately this is promising kitsch. Brown killed Christmas (in a good way) at Mockingbird Hill – let’s see if he can own Summer at Southern Efficiency.

From a press release:

“Derek Brown’s Southern Efficiency is Spending the Summer at Camp Iwannawhiskey!

It’s hard to deny just how satisfying a dram is fireside, which is why for leading spirits expert and bartender Derek Brown, whiskey and camping go hand in hand. In honor of summer camp, Brown’s award-winning whiskey bar Southern Efficiency is inviting guests to take a nostalgic visit to Camp Iwannawhiskey this summer via its all new camp-inspired menu.

Southern Efficiency bar manager Paul Taylor and his team have crafted nine new cocktails appropriate for both the barstool and the campfire log, using ingredients like grapefruit-ginger cordial and toasted marshmallow syrup. The new adult summer camp-themed menu includes cocktails such as “Wet Hot American Sazerac” made with rye, pineau des charentes, dark rum, pineapple gomme syrup, Peychaud’s bitters and absinthe, and “Parents Weekend,” a mix of bourbon, Strega, coffee liqueur, cane sugar, lemon and egg whites.

“We love deriving ingredients and flavors from disparate places, whether that’s something we taste — a spirit or ingredient, or a memory,” Taylor says of the creative new whiskey-forward offerings. “This menu combines both and adds an element of whimsy to whiskey.”

Southern Efficiency’s Camp Iwannawhiskey cocktails are $12 each and will be available through September.”

Full menu after the jump.
