Steeped in history, surrounded by impressive architecture, Washington DC is a spectacular city to visit.  It’s especially beautiful when the cherry blossoms are in bloom. Since Mother Nature holds all the cards, predicting when they’ll be at their peak frilliness is a bit of a guessing game. But The National Park Service guesses they’ll be taking a page from your Wildest Dreams between April 2-5.

Just like the pink laced petals, this cocktail is on the sweetside but definitely worth visiting.
