At Blixen in Spitalfields you’ll find the Plum Sazerac Junior, a smoky and fruity shot made with Bas Armagnac, Prucia Plum Liqueur and Peychaud’s Bitters in an absinthe-sprayed glass and garnished with a plum segment (far right), while Marylebone’s Peruvian bar and restaurant Pachamama serves a Tiger’s Back — a shot of Pisco followed by one of tiger’s milk (the citrus-based marinade that cures the seafood in a ceviche, recommended as both a palate cleanser and a stomach soother).
