What's the best way to start a day at the Good Food Mercantile at Union Market in Washington, D.C.? With a cocktail segment, of course! Caity has teamed up with Producer at Large Jack Inslee and Allison Hamlin to check out the hottest products on the D.C. cocktail scene.

First up, Tory Pratt of True Syrups & Garnishes talks about the excitement around craft booze and how her products are encouraging people to make cocktails at home. Next, Don Morton of Shrub District tells how his products are moving forward into the cocktail future by resurrecting history. Things get crude with Craig Rudewicz of Crude Bitters as he shares the secret to running a successful small business (hint: Google!). Finally, Pia Carusone and Sarah Mosbacher get the crew into the spirit of girl power and give their take on the evolution of D.C. into a cocktail capital.
