BETHESDA, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 05/28/14 -- Eating fresh, seasonal cuisine is one of the more appealing trends these days, especially when it starts with the aperitifs and continues through to the ambience. And this is precisely the approach taken by the Democracy Grille at the Bethesda Marriott Suites. This spring, guests can look forward to sipping an exciting new cocktail on the restaurant's ambient patio, while eligible local patrons enjoy a special discount to remind them why they love dining in Bethesda, MD.
As one of the premier American restaurants in Bethesda, MD, Democracy Grille is known for chef-crafted classics and a buzzing, stylish atmosphere. It is, in other words, the ideal setting for a seasonal, signature cocktail.
Dubbed the Angry Apple, the drink was crafted by the restaurant's bartender Raja Desai. Desai is part of a top-ranking team for bar and lounge service within the hotel brand, and he created, with the help of his colleagues and loyal patrons, something as refreshing as it is regionally relevant.
Combining light flavors appropriate for spring, Desai and his team shake together half an ounce of Smirnoff Cinna-Sugar Vodka, half an ounce of DeKuyper Sour Apple Pucker and 2 ounces of cranberry juice with ice. Then the drink is strained into a champagne flute, topped with 3 ounces of Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider and garnished with a slice of red apple.
Guests can further immerse themselves in the season by sipping their Angry Apples on the outdoor patio, which opened on May 16. Here they can sample for themselves the many dishes that make Democracy Grille great, from steak, to mahi mahi tacos, to Maryland jumbo lump crab cakes. And for patrons who also happen to work in the local business park (Democracy I and II buildings and the other businesses on Fernwood Road and Rockledge Drive), the restaurant is offering a 10-percent discount on food. (This offer is not valid with other promotions.)
The business-friendly discount is in keeping with the atmosphere of this hotel in North Bethesda. Not only are these corporate accommodations located along Bethesda's Technology Corridor, they also include all the features business guests desire, from enhanced high-speed Internet access, to plug-in connectivity panels.
Whether locals wander over to Democracy Grille after work in the nearby offices, or travelers drop in to get a taste of the area, the Angry Apple and the rest of the menu celebrate spring in Maryland in one palatable, pleasurable way.
