Although warm weather is off to a late start this year, the Cherry Blossom Festival always comes with it. If you don’t have time to make it downtown, luckily you can still get your cherry fix in Georgetown.
Naturally, the iconic Georgetown Cupcake has their own seasonal cupcake for the cherry blossom festival. Their version consists of a vanilla cupcake with fresh cherries topped with a cherry infused cream cheese frosting. It just might be worth waiting in that line for one.
The Graham Georgetown Hotel
For a more refined taste, the restaurant within the Graham Hotel has a cherry and goat cheese pastry. If you’re looking for that perfect cherry drink to accompany your meal, they also have a selection of spring cocktails that includes the Old Blue Eyes, which mixes Hendrick’s Gin, muddled brandied cherries, St. Germaine liqueur and a splash of cranberry.
During this cherry blossom season, Paul bakery has their ‘Cramique aux cerises,’ which is brioche baked with sugar crystals and sour cherries.
This French menu has many specialties for the duration of the Cherry Blossom Festival. Some of their options include duck with sweet and sour cherry sauce and, from the bakery, a cherry clafoutis.
Baked & Wired
Another cherry-blossom inspired cupcake to try! Available both in regular and gluten free varieties, these pink cupcakes will please any sweet tooth. Baked & Wired also has other cherry-infused items on their menu, including cherry pie and a cherry and pistachio biscotti.
Paolo’s has completely embraced this time of year, with a menu that includes a cherry hummingbird cocktail, a salad with cherry salsa, and two different cherry and chocolate based desserts. From start to finish, you can cover all your cherry cravings here!
