The drinks at this semi-stuffy midtown joint are as progressive as the tiny, avant-garde bites appearing from the kitchen. Nothing is what it appears, so don’t expect the usual glassware, ice or even spirits for that matter.  Much ado has been made about the clarified Milk Punch (it’s clear!), and not for nothing. There’s also the Not a Mint Julep, which erases all expectations at its title, and then creates its own standards with an icy mix of Vouvray, basil and rum. Even with the classics, Betony loves sleight of hand—the G&T uses juniper-infused vodka.
