A cocktail from Capitol Hill was named one of the best in the country. Here's how to make it.
An aromatic pisco drink, Foreign National has hints of rose petal, orange zest and black tea leaves. It’s fruity but not sweet, more tart. The recipe is below, though unless you plan to make a big batch for your cocktail party, it’s easier just to order it at the Capitol Hill bar. It’s also a good excuse to check out the bar that the Seattle Times considers to be the best new cocktail bar in 2016.
(As a side note, Foreign National also makes a great Singapore Sling. Recipe here.)
