Iced coffee at Fort Defiance
This elegant iced java—dark, industrial-strength Counter Culture coffee served in a Collins glass over Kold Draft cubes—looks as good as it tastes. 365 Van Brunt St at Dikeman St, Red Hook, Brooklyn (347-453-6672, fortdefiancebrooklyn.com). $2.50.

King's County Manhattan at Bussaco
Bussaco's rendition of a classic Manhattan uses aromatic Vya sweet vermouth, robust Michter's rye and a proper Luxardo cherry. It's almost too easy to drink. 833 Union St between Sixth and Seventh Aves, Park Slope, Brooklyn (718-857-8828, bussacobklyn.com). $13.

Kombucha Brooklyn at Brouwerij Lane
At Greenpoint's best growler-filling station, you can detox from beer with a tap-poured pint of Kombucha Brooklyn's naturally fizzy, fermented tea, a restorative tonic packed with live cultures. 78 Greenpoint Ave at Franklin St, Greenpoint, Brooklyn (347-529-6133, brouwerijlane.com). $4.

Leche de tigre at Yerba Buena
Ceviche lovers should request this unlisted cocktail, a traditional Peruvian virility enhancer that combines the bracing liquid in which the fish is cured (plus cilantro, onions and hot peppers) with a shot of pisco, the country's grape brandy. Salud! 23 Ave A between 1st and 2nd Sts (212-529-2919, ybnyc.com). $12.

Mary's Place cocktail at Cabrito
The serrano-pepper--infused rum in this tongue-singeing drink is tempered by the herbal freshness of muddled cilantro and the bright acidity of lime. 50 Carmine St between Bedford and Bleecker Sts (212-929-5050, cabritonyc.com). $12.

Nth degree at Clover Club
Serious tipplers appreciate the unapologetic potency of this sharp, slightly vegetal off-the-menu drink: a blend of applejack, spicy aged rum and herbaceous green Chartreuse, served over one glacial ice cube. 210 Smith St between Baltic and Butler Sts, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn (718-855-7939, cloverclubny.com). $12.

Peach brandy julep at Little Branch
Don't tell the Derby police, but Sasha Petraske's cocktail den has improved the traditional mint julep by subbing out bourbon for peach liqueur and cognac, resulting in sweet, chilled ambrosia. 20--22 Seventh Ave South at Leroy St (212-929-4360). $13.

Tinker's Stand No. 2 at Allen & Delancey
Mixologist Alex Day leavens rye's spicy wallop with layers of sherry, amaro, and aromatics like elderflower, Bndictine and bitters. 15 Allen St at Delancey St (212-253-5400, allenanddelancey.net). $16.
