As true believers of the work hard, play hard mantra, we present you with It’s Been a Long Week, a weekly column aimed at awarding some liquid appreciation to you for just being yourself, dammit. Make a glass or two on us, you deserve it.


The Rye Bar’s Orange Martini
If you can’t make it to Washington, D.C. this summer, you can still toast to this year’s fireworks with a festive Fourth of July cocktail from The Rye Bar at the award-winning Capella, Georgetown in your very own home. A brand new recipe created by Angel Cervantes, the gin and vermouth cocktail is the perfect mid-summer beverage without too much patriotism.



  • 1.5 oz. Apple shrub
  • 1 oz. Aperol
  • 1 oz. St George’s Dry Rye Gin
  • 1 oz. Dolin White Sweet Vermouth
