This revamped East Village institution was once known for its $2 rum-and-Coke specials and now offers potent, reasonably priced cocktails, including rum punch (courtesy of bartending brothers Michael and Danny Neff). It also has a killer Long Island Iced Tea, a dive-bar staple that is something of a natural fit for the reborn classic. For this modern version, cola, which helps tint the drink, is nixed in favor of real tea that’s infused into the vodka. Add the requisite spirits, lemon, and the excellent citrus syrup known as oleo-saccharum, and you’ve got a drink that tastes bright and fruity, without straying too far from the original recipe. It still feels like it’d be at home at a Jimmy Buffett concert, but the short glasses and knowingly ridiculous garnish situation make it work in downtown Manhattan, too.
