Gilded Lily, a Flossy Tipple at The Alembic Bar

This week's sunny skies called for a little splash of flash without spending too much cash. Luckily, the soon-to-expand Alembic Bar is equipped to provide such a service to the thirsty in search of sparkle via its Gilded Lily.
 

"There are things in life that require little adornment, but we are never ones to shy away from a bit of grandeur," reads the page-turning menu. (Seriously, if you haven't checked out the literary care put into the menu here, you're missing out.)

Plymouth gin, Yellow Chartreuse, orange flower water, and a sparkling demi-sec get gussied up with a flossy gold leaf float for a drink that makes you feel like you ought to be in a rap video. And if you want to be silly, you can leave a little leaf on your lips.

Ah, playing with shiny beverages; sometimes it's just about the little luxuries.

It's true. They sometimes even use articles!
