Earlier this year, cocktail aficionados flocked to the Warehouse Theater's quiet bar for a weekly event called Punch Club, where Dan Searing, a member of the D.C. Craft Bartender's Guild, would create old-fashioned cocktails in large glass bowls and ladle them out for $5 a cup. It had a festive feel, partly from the idea of sharing drinks with the crowd and partly from the underground atmosphere. Searing, who is a partner in the new Room 11 wine bar in Columbia Heights, is resurrecting the night there every Sunday, beginning this weekend. He's whipping up one of my favorites, the Rocky Mountain Punch. When I last had it in January, I found it "an amazingly sweet-and-tart drink with a recipe that calls for five bottles of champagne, a quart of rum, a pint of maraschino liqueur and half a dozen sliced lemons."
The event lasts until the punches run out, so early arrival is suggested.
