You know you’re in the wrong bar if it proudly serves blechy energy drinks (worse case scenario: The Red Bull car is parked outside), so we’re a little surprised that hoity-toity spots like the Bowery Hotel’s bar, Petrossian, Koi, and GoldBar have started stocking the stuff. But don’t imagine ravers swilling Red Bull and vodka: Marquis Platinum, “The Luxury Refreshment,” has a Bentley-like logo and markets itself to socialite types as a vitality drink. Instead of déclassé ingredients like taurine and artificial flavoring, it contains aloe vera and pine-bark extract — perfect for mixing with “ultrapremium vodka”! Whether or not it gives you wings, it does let you float above the unwashed masses.
