Culinary cocktails: Beet Not-Feratu 

The Pharmacy

A flute full of opaque blood-red fluid might cause non-vampires to quail, but screw your courage to the sticking place and give it a try; you'll be met with an utterly unique combination of flavors and textures. The faint earthiness of beets – roasted to bring out sweetness, then pureed and strained – mingles with a silky house-made gomme, smooth Reyka vodka, sharp Boodles gin, a flamboyant pop of raspberry liqueur and a subtle, tart acid tincture. It's a menu mainstay, but other culinary cocktails do pop up at Pharmacy – sometimes there's a punch made with tincture of prosciutto di Parma and clarified milk, and a foie gras-based drink is on the horizon.
