Policy Introduces Craft Cocktails on Draft

Eight dedicated tap lines soon to come
Policy Introduces Craft Cocktails on Draft

Everyone loves a craft cocktail. But if you’ve spent any time on the other side of the bar, you know quality cocktails can take a lot of time and effort. Hence, the growing popularity of cocktails on tap, catering to D.C. drinkers’ demand for quick quality at a reasonable price. On U Street, Policy general manager Jordan Davidowitz has introduced craft on draft cocktails to provide just that, without losing the technique of skilled mixologists.

The current offerings include just one craft cocktail on tap, the vodka-based Strawberry Rhubarb Collins, but coming soon are eight dedicated draft lines — four on each floor — and bartenders are actively experimenting with new creations.

We had the chance to catch up with Jordan and chat about the inaugural tap drink. “Strawberry and rhubarb are in season, and are a classic combination,” he noted. How do they make sure the cocktail on tap tastes fresh? “We add clarified lemon juice to the mix and carbonate the whole product in the sixtel. That way, we can pour a consistent drink every time. The cocktail is finished by rimming the glass with a basil sugar and garnishing with a fresh strawberry.”

“Once we have the lines installed, we’ll change the vodka offering seasonally, and we’re working on three more, including a whiskey with fresh ginger beer and a gin with our homemade tonic,” Davidowtiz said with excited anticipation. Sounds good to us; we can’t wait to try them all.
