Julep, 1919 Washington, has introduced its first original menu since reopening, which focuses on the origins of migrant ingredients from other countries and features a brand new menu curated by veteran chef Kate McLean. In addition to the bar’s 80 classics, the eight new original cocktails each contain a migrant ingredient that shows their place of origin and describes their effect on the drink – such as the Tepache Julep with Sous Vide Verdejo and pineapple, maraschino, mezcal, raspberry and tamarind as that Sweeteners; or the Ela Milk Punch, a hit made from bourbon, banana, brown sugar and milk with cardamom. Dishes include the Oyster Picnic, inspired by one of the favorite dishes of the owner Alba Huerta in France and with Murder Point oysters, Toulouse sausage, Magnol French Baking baguette and house butter; and a house burger with Texas Akaushi beef, a magnol French baking sesame roll, French onion dip and crystal pickles.
