At B1 Bar, “one does not drink alcohol, only spirits. One is therefore not alcoholic, but spiritual”.
And it is in this state of bliss that a few of us gathered at the establishment where, I swear, they serve the best concoctions of mixed distilled beverages.
Take their Red Snatcher for example, a drink that would make any Clamato juice blush with jealousy. Forget the days of salt-rimmed glasses; at B1, your Bloody Caesar is served with a delicate layer of foamed celery delivered in a sophisticated coupe glass. Add a bit of sriracha sauce, a good dose of Tanqueray 10 and a dash of Worcestershire sauce (how the hell does one pronounce that word?!), and you get the most unctuous, spicy cocktail in the city.
Also a bartending school during off-hours, B1 is all about educating and sharing secrets. I’ve added below its DIY videos for you to recreate its little gems on your next evening of entertainment obligation. Enjoy!
