Drink In the Drama
Some of the most flamboyant cocktails we’ve spotted around town.
ROMANCING THE STONE
To serve this cocktail at Backbar in Somerville, bartenders light a sprig of rosemary on fire, then pour a mix of scotch, sweet vermouth, and green Chartreuse over the flames tableside.
MOTHER OF DRAGONS
For this Game of Thrones–inspired drink, mixologists at Baldwin & Sons Trading Co. fill an egglike vessel with a tiki-style punch, whipped up on the fly according to guests’ preferences.
Gaming bar A4cade offers its libations in all manner of over-the-top containers, including a fish bowl, shown here filled with Letherbee gin, Cocchi Americano, chamomile flowers, tarragon, and Q Tonic.
Served in a snail shell and garnished with a chamomile tea foam, this ArtScience Culture Lab & Café creation is a balanced blend of Ron Zacapa solera-aged rum, passionfruit, Aperol, and coconut cream.
