You know what’s hotter than a sexy female bartendress? A bartender who knows her stuff. That’s what we’re focused on here -- the 17 most skilled gals behind the stick in the District.
Where you can find her: Compass Rose
Specialty: Drinks made with fresh juice and unique spirits like chacha from Georgia (the country). She’s also skilled at naming cocktails with far-reaching references to hip-hop.
Secret weapon: Her Salt & Sundry gold spoon for stirring -- she’s so smitten with it, she’s started to take it home at night. Watch her use it, but try not to stare at her pizza slice tattoo that resulted from a hangover.
What she’s doing when she’s not working: Painting. In fact, come October, you’ll be able to see some of her work hanging in the restaurant.
What she loves about DC: “I love that I didn’t think I would love it.”
