While slow-walking tourists, weekend Uber price hikes, and enough Claritin D to turn the entire left side of your face numb tend to be the hallmarks of a DC resident’s Cherry Blossom season, it is our duty to report that one can also enjoy blossoms of the edible (and drinkable!) variety this month, as well. Below, we’ve rounded up our favorite limited-edition, floral-inspired eats and drinks from our favorite spots in Washington. Hey, we may not be able to instill the values of Metro elevator etiquette into visitors of our fair city, but we can at least get you a little tipsy before having to endure standing in the walking section. Let’s dive in, shall we?
