Cocktails for the kidsAt the historic Willard Intercontinental lobby, kids can order up their own cocktails — from Shirley Temples to an in-house creation, the Round Robin Zinger (lemon juice, ginger root, green tea and lemonade). The Round Robin Bar offers munchies to complement the “kidtails.” Executive Chef Daniel Kenney concocted organic bite-size snacks, priced at $4 each. Kids can enjoy dark chocolate-dipped green apples with a Roy Rogers (a cola, lime and grenadine concoction). Or they can choose a Strawberry Cream Crush matched with a bowl of homemade organic strawberry sorbet. To truly excite the palate, try the grilled exotic fruit kabobs on sugar cane. The hotel has a rich past, being where Martin Luther King wrote his “I Have a Dream” speech, so kids can get a side order of history.
The Round Robin Bar in the Willard Intercontinental is located at 1401 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W.
