Bryan Tetorakis, cheftender at Washington, D.C.’s Rogue 24, imbues this rummy, autumnal ambrosia with the favored flavors of the season—clove, cinnamon and juniper berry—then tops it off with a stout-based foam that hides a hint of orange zest. “The name comes from my favorite time to visit the monuments here in D.C.,” he says. “Why spend all your time battling tourists when you could be sipping this cocktail instead?”
