Vanilla vodka, cold-brew coffee, Jager, amaro. A dash of wintry spices and a dollop of Chartreuse-infused whipped cream. Prost’s signature Wake Me Up (before you go go) cocktail will certainly accomplish what its name suggests. The caffeine-laced cocktail is just one of the many creative libations on the drink list, along with more familiar options like the D.C. Rickey and whiskey-spiked warm cider.
The latter is the perfect option if you’ll be sitting out in the beer garden on a brisk D.C. evening. Since Prost only opened recently, it was in the unique position of planning for the previously unforeseeable events of last year. Its beer garden space is complete with twinkling lights and heaters, which keeps things cozy as you sip your go-to brew. You’re also welcome to sit inside, just note that masks are required whenever you aren’t seated and eating or drinking. Takeout and delivery are available, as well, so you have many ways to enjoy the brews, cocktails, and bites like schnitzel, wurst, and Bavarian pretzels.
