Cheers to the Weekend: The Japanese

It's that time of the week when we say "Cheers to the weekend!" Every Friday night, we invite a bartender or mixologist to share their signature cocktail.

Matt Allred, lead bartender for Zentan restaurant located in The Donovan Hotel in Thomas Circle, joined us on FOX 5 News to mix us up a drink called "The Japanese."
