This is one of 12 cocktails being served at the Georgetown 1789 Restaurant to mark the 12 days of Christmas, which run from Dec. 25 through Jan. 5. Can you guess which day inspired it? It's the seventh day (seven swans a-swimming), New Year's Eve, says manager Mark Kibbe.

Servings: 1
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
