An iconic Washington hotel that's just steps from the White House is introducing a new cocktail — and coaster — inspired by Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) MuellerWhy a special counsel is guaranteed if Biden chooses Yates, Cuomo or Jones as AG Barr taps attorney investigating Russia probe origins as special counsel CNN's Toobin warns McCabe is in 'perilous condition' with emboldened Trump MORE.

The Hay-Adams Hotel on Tuesday unveiled its “Mueller’s Trump Card” cocktail — a combination of a Moscow mule and a Dark and Stormy. The Pyrat XO rum, vodka, ginger beer and lime juice concoction is an ode to the special counsel, who’s probing Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, including any possible coordination with the Trump campaign.

The Mueller drink joins a lineup of other only-in-Washington libations, including a “Trumpy Sour” and a ginger beer and pineapple juice mocktail called “Sweet Melania.”


In addition to the special counsel–named adult beverage — available throughout the summer — guests at the Hay-Adams’ Off the Record bar can sip their D.C.-themed $18 and $19 drinks on one of the hotel’s newest political coasters.

The historic hotel also debuted coasters from political cartoonist Matt Wuerker for Sarah Huckabee Sanders — which imagines the White House press secretary glaring at Twitter on her phone as she prepares a statement from her boss — and French President Emmanuel Macron. The trio joins more than 25 other collectable political coasters from the Hay-Adams, which is located across Lafayette Square from the White House.

“These coasters are great conversation pieces for our guests that come to experience cocktails and dinner in Off The Record,” Hay-Adams general manager Hans Bruland said in a statement.
