The World Cup champs might have been too busy dancing and striking poses at Wednesday's parade in New York that they might have missed a social media invitation from Republic Restoratives.

The D.C. distillery is known for "being women-owned, LGBTQ-owned, outspoken and the makers of award-winning spirits," according to it's owner Pia Carusone.

In the Republic Restoratives' Twitter invitation to the squad, Carusone writes that "our team agrees with your captain’s assessment of a potential invite to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, but we assure you that the District has much more to offer."

A tour, taste and toast is on the table.

The distillery opened in 2016 and has been crafting CIVIC Vodka, Borough Bourbon and Chapmans Apple Brandy ever since. Their most notable release is Rodham Rye, a nod to Trump's 2016 opponent, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

If captain Megan Rapinoe's glorious speeches and goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris’s triumphant Instagram stories are any indication, a visit to Republic Restoratives would be a great after party to the squad's sublime parade in New York.

Rapione has drawn attention to herself both on and off the field, winning the Golden Ball for the tournament's best player, the Golden Boot for its top scorer and acting as the team's spunky and outspoken captain.

In the games leading up to the World Cup final, Rapione stated in an interview that she's "not going to the f***ing White House."

Instead of taking the traditional trip to the White House, the team has accepted an invitation to celebrate its victory with a visit to Congress, according to an Associated Press report.

Backing the invitation is Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

If the squad can spare any free time among their animated celebrations and visit to Congress, perhaps they'll take Republic Restoratives up on their offer.
