Benjamin Roshia, One Stop Beer Shop
The Greenpoint neighborhood joint offers something for the health-conscious yet tequila-loving, adding the benefits of blueberry kombucha, lime, lemon, and ginger. At around 100 calories, it might make it into your daily diet.
Snows of Cotopaxi, (Recipe)
Nicolas de Soto, Experimental Cocktail Club
De Soto named this creamy and stomach-coating flip (a drink generally made with a whole egg) after succumbing to altitude sickness on his travels to Ecuador. The festive sipper of Cardinal Mendoza Spanish Brandy, Amaro Ciocaro, and a simple-to-make spiced sweet potato syrup will help you realize your mortality quite nicely.
Horse Tonic, (Recipe)
Richard Boccato, PKNY, Dutch Kills, Weather Up Tribeca
Clear out the cobwebs with this traditional fizz, a category of sours topped with soda water and containing egg whites that were originally intended as a "morning after" remedy. Boccato's hair of the dog features Falernum, ginger syrup, Black Strap and Bermuda rum, and the white of one egg. Topped with espresso grounds and the oils of an orange peel, it’s both protein-rich and eye-opening.
Champagne Revolution , (Recipe)
Brandon Freid, Haven Ski Chalet
Fizzy drinks are always great for unruly stomachs. Grandma would probably suggest ginger ale, but we'd rather go for this bubbly prosecco cocktail, sweetened with the fruity flavors of blueberries and raspberries.
Grapefruit-Campari Spritz, (Recipe)
Christopher Melly, L’Apico
There’s only four ingredients in this refreshing and seasonal cocktail (three if you make the alternate version without vodka), which may be all you can handle after a night on the town. Campari, grapefruit, and vodka provide the base, throw in some of the leftover sparkling wine, and you’re good to go.
Passion Fruit Jalapeño Margarita, (Recipe)
Jonathan VanSleet, MexiBBQ
This margarita powers up with a cinnamon, salt, and cayenne rim, bringing you back to life before you even get to the revitalizing effects of tequila and jalapeño, also good for sweating out toxins.
Ginger Apple Cider, (Recipe)
Ben Daitz and Ratha Chaupoly, Num Pang
The cult sandwich shop knows how to hug your heart, which is why their apple cider utilizes the warming effects of bourbon (as per their instructions "the good stuff"), and lots of it. It's cold weather comfort served hot, and spiced up with ginger.
