Ice cream. Coke. Rum. Southern Comfort-soaked cherries. Absinthe whipped cream.

Sounds like a great combination to us.

Introducing the Cuba Libre float, available at D.C.’s Hemingway-inspired Bar Pilar.

It’s the off-menu item worth asking for in the middle of a steamy heat wave that only the District can concoct. Served in a highball glass made from a former Coke bottle, the frosty drink’s shot of rum is enough to entice even the most health-conscious drinker. But topping it off with alcoholic fruit and whipped cream takes this drink to a whole new level of commitment.

Diner milkshakes from the 1950s just can’t compare.
