That was not medicine -- as there was actually none that needed to be taken.  The little Tsarevich was having a taste of the food being served the enlisted men on duty aboard the Standart, just as his father did.  This was a custom observed by superior officers when they came to visit their troops for the day, and there is no doubt that like all sons that age, Alexei Nikolaevich loved to do things in imitation of his father.

You can bet that was some yummy chow that Alexei sampled and the crew enjoyed...I'll imagine serving on an Imperial yacht was pretty cushy duty..... ;D

On this one, you can see the tsar tasting soup under the attentive eye of Alexis :
