Their mixologist, Gina Chersevani, lost 50 pounds last year and realizes that drinks can quietly add to your daily calorie count. That's a real problem in Washington, where getting drinks is part of the business culture (if you can call it business).
Chersevani didn't stop at a low calorie-count; her drinks also include ingredients that are healthy (such as a chili that speeds up metabolism, which is infused in vodka) and that encourage slow sipping of your drink - meaning even fewer calories.
Chersevani even makes her own simple syrup, a common and calorie-loaded ingredient in many drinks, with calorie-free Splenda.
So now you can celebrate in Penn Quarter without breaking your New Year's resolution - we'll drink to that.
The available 100-calorie (or less) drinks are:
Ant-EYE-ox-A-dent: Sobieski vodka, homemade cranberry-pear juice, green tea, and bitters.
The Chili Flip: Stoli Pomagranik, lemon, and Kashmiri chilis
Dark & Skinny: Sobieski vodka, coco, and vanilla.
