The cocktail menu at The Fat Radish runs vegetal, mixing house-made juices and tinctures with small-batch spirits like New York’s own Kings County distillery, producers of bourbon, moonshine and other American whiskeys. The White Summer Sazerac features a blend of its corn and rye whiskey with a touch of Bolivian Singani 63 brandy, Italian Italicus aperitivo, celery and fennel bitters, and celery salt, finished with a few spritzes of absinthe.
