Drink Your Vegetables

Last Thursday, I was invited to a high-end spirits tasting courtesy of Bacardi at the brand new, “secret” Chinatown bar, Apotheke. In addition to the intriguing decor (think opium den meets apothecary) the cocktails were just as interesting: Grey Goose and Grand Marnier combine with muddled strawberries; some type of cilantro concoction which I stayed away from because I detest the herb; and my favorite: Grey Goose will muddled red peppers and dill. I’ll have to hit this place up on a regular night to try some apothecary-themed cocktails, such as Aphrodisiacs (champagne and cognacs), Pain Killers (tequilas and spices), and Stress Relievers (incorporating lavender, sage, etc). Apotheke, 9 Doyers St., New York, NY 10013 (212) 406-0400
