Best Not-Too-Sweet Cocktail

Buffala Negra at Make Westing

Pity the savory-cocktail fan: Unless you want a Bloody Mary at all hours of the day (spoiler alert: You do not), you're stuck swilling vodka sodas. Not at Make Westing, though, where the Buffala Negra offers a symphony of acid (balsamic vinegar), herb (basil), gentle spice (ginger beer), and, of course, booze (whiskey). Complex, balanced, and remarkably hefty for such a refreshing drink, it's an iconic drink at a bar with plenty already, and it's the kind of cocktail you remember for minutes, maybe days, after drinking. No more vodka sodas!
