WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- A large sinkhole kept 14th Street closed between New York and Pennsylvania avenues and F Street and G Street closed between 13th and 15th streets on Wednesday morning as crews made repairs. A restaurant near the scene isn't closing and has, in fact, created a cocktail to mark the event.
"More than a chance to throw one back, this fun cocktail is helping Ceiba bring in business that they may have lost from the sinkhole and subsequent road closures," said a spokesperson in a press release on Wednesday.
Ceiba's Sinkhole de Mayo costs $5, says its public relations spokesperson. It's made of Appleton VX Rum, housemade sour mix, pineapple juice and a shot of housemade grenadine. The spokesperson says the shot of grenadine "sinks" into the drink "for a cool effect."
The special lasts until 11 p.m. Wednesday.
Ceiba is described as a "contemporary Latin-American inspired restaurant" with a name that pays "tribute to the imposing umbrella-shaped tree found throughout the new-world tropics." It is located at 701 14th Street NW.
