If you want to have a drink by one of the best bartenders in DC, you have to jump through several hoops and reserve a seat at Dram & Grain— the private basement bar tucked inside Adams Morgan whiskey dining saloon, Jack Rose.

Trevor Frye, one of GQ Magazines featured mixologists of the year, runs the hidden bar. Featured in the most recent season of Bar Rescue, Frye can take up to 15 minutes to craft a specialty cocktail.

In case you never get an invite to Dram & Grain, Frye has shared the recipes to some of his most beloved cocktails that will impress your guests and warm up your winter.
