Best of New York 2013 • Fun

Best Mocktails

  • The Library

    The NoMad Hotel, 1170 Broadway, at 28th St.; 212-796-1500

    Mad Men–style after-work (or during work!) imbibing isn’t always the best idea. But even if you’re not drinking, you can still look like you are, thanks to the nonintoxicating selection of “soft cocktails” at the NoMad. Bar manager Leo Robitschek’s extensive research has enabled him to produce mocktails that don’t mock your taste buds. It’s a thoughtful remixing of juices and artisanal flavorings into something entirely new. On the menu now: an aromatic take on the Orange Julius and La Piña, a pineapple mocktail made with jalapeño-infused agave, both $8, versus $15 for the boozy varieties.
