Church & State Wants to Help You Sin

Our friends over at H Street cocktail hub Church & State are releasing their new Seven Deadly Sin Menu.

We are happy to see not just the seven deadly sins — greed, envy, wrath, lust, gluttony, sloth and pride — represented, but also the basic spirit food groups: gin, vodka, bourbon and rye.

And we heartily applaud the names that go along with these sins/boozies. Under Greed, you’ll drink the Boss Tweed, a concoction of Earl Grey-infused Bulleit Rye with Michigan tart cherry liqueur and lemon. Feeling lazy? Go with Sloth’s Bessie Smith, which consists of lavender-infused George Dickel Bourbon with maple, mint and lemon. Want some clear liquor to go with your shenanigans? How about Gluttony’s Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, which provides you with sparkling wine, blueberry vodka, cardamom bitters and more blueberry.

Not listed? What they have in store for Pride. For that, perhaps we’ll investigate. Church & State, 1236 H St. NE, above Atlas Arcade.

We couldn’t help but wonder whether there’ll be some kind of David Fincher tie-in.
