The Hay-Adams – has unveiled the latest additions to hotel bar Off The Record’s legendary collection of limited-edition political cartoon coasters, featuring new artwork of Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, and for the first time, Kamala Harris.
[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.]
A longstanding tradition honoring politicos of the time, the highly sought-after coasters are collected by bar patrons and hotel regulars from across the country and around the globe.
Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonist Matt Wuerker drew Warren, Sanders, and Harris for this latest commission.
Each coaster will accompany an exclusive cocktail mixed to represent its namesake. The drinks range in price between $16 and $20.
Elizabeth Warren – The Pear-sist
This spiced pear cocktail mixes malbec with vodka, balancing spice with a touch of sweet that’s sure to make you insist on having another.
Kamala Harris – á La Kamala
Our take on a Pisco Sour, cocoa infused Campari accompanies this deliciously smooth sipper that no prosecutor can object to.
Bernie Sanders – Bern Baby Bern
A delicious apple-ginger martini bursting with flavor, this drink packs just the right amount of burn from our house-made ginger syrup and is perfect for fall.
The coasters and exclusive cocktails are available starting today and will run through mid-winter. Off The Record hours of operation are Sunday through Thursday, from 11:30 a.m. to 12 a.m.; Friday and Saturday, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. The full bar menu is served until 11:00 p.m. daily.

The upscale hotel bar also serves an inspired menu and superb wine selection.
