The backdrop for this dazzling feat of cocktail theater is a 37-seat lair on the 15th floor of the Ritz-Carlton. Drenched in black and gold and warmed with sultry light, the vibe is Gatsby-esque. Center stage is Bob Peters, who, with an arsenal of potent liquor, farm-fresh ingredients, handmade potions, and unlikely tools, is pouring award-winning cocktails and libations worthy of an encore, or two.
