Best Meat Cocktail
Range’s Vegan Sacrifice
5335 Wisconsin Ave. NW, Suite 201
Venison? Foie gras? Grasshoppers? Is there anything mixologists won’t put in cocktails these days? Some new creations are heavy or just plain gross, but Range beverage director Owen Thomson has created a drink for carnivores that you’d actually want to taste (unless, of course, you’re a vegetarian). The Vegan Sacrifice contains Great King Street Scotch, ginger, cayenne, and spherical “beef ice” made with veal consomme. The $11 drink packs a punch from the ginger and cayenne, and the meat flavor is subtle, growing as the ice melts.
