JULY 2019 – The Watergate Hotel Celebrates Apollo 11 Moon Landing with Tang Cocktail

Come July 20, 2019, there will be no better place to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 landing on the moon.

[Hey! Have you seen my post on custom-made MTM clothing? Take a look, and if you place an order, they will add a free custom shirt. Just tell them The Washington Lobbyist sent you.]

As you enjoy the rooftop and take in the scenic views of Washington, DC, the drink of choice is The Moonwalker – a retro riff on the quintessential drink mix, Tang.

The orange ‘power’ powder found on numerous space shuttle missions in the 1960’s was famous for giving the astronauts a refreshing, lively pep in their step for that very first walk onto the moon!

The fizzy, buzzy thirst quencher will tantalize the taste buds at the rooftop bar of The Watergate Hotel, during the entire month of July for $20.

The de-facto drink of choice is a mixture of premium ingredients – Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur, Aperol Aperitivo, freshly squeezed Orange Juice, Moët Ice Imperial – and a pinch of Tang, both in the drink, and circling the edge of the rim.

The Watergate Hotel. 2650 Virginia Ave NW, Washington, DC 20037. (866) 271-0218.
