Part of the multi-concept space KUVO, Elixir Bar recently welcomed new bartender Ukrainian-born Vladyslav Buzko, better known as Vlad, to the mix.
Inspired by the name of the bar, he has introduced 10 new alchemy-themed cocktails. Categorised into the themes of happiness, beauty, life, luck and courage, each drink comes with a backstory and features exotic ingredient names more akin to a witch’s brew than cocktail—think ‘slime of snail’ and ‘heart of swan’.
One of the highlights on the menu, Jupiter ($26) is an elixir of courage and features ingredients like perpetual glue (caramel), meteorite (cheese) and hummingbird eggs (black caviar). If you prefer the classics, Vlad makes a mean Black Negroni ($21).
