Sometimes life calls for a cocktail — especially on a Friday. While you can’t go wrong with a simple vodka and soda, there are times when you want to really shake things up. We turn to area restaurants and bars for inspiration. This week, Washington D.C.’s Masa 14 shares one of their fall cocktails, Autumn on 14th.
