Cocktails Invented in the DC Area

Are there any cocktails that are uniquely DC? Invented here? Perfected here?

I remember reading an article a while back in the Washington Post about a summer cocktail that was quintessentially Washingtonian (it helped people get through August), but I can't find the article and can't remember the name of the cocktail.

I'm thinking of a classic cocktail, but if there are any new and modern ones, I'd love to know about those too.

    The Gin Rickey was invented in DC.
