Kevin Diedrich creates a low-alcohol cocktail

We’ve been there: Some nights, looking at a Manhattan is enough to reintroduce a hangover. But nobody said that cocktails had to be so boozy. Before you reach for the club soda, however, know that there is an in-between: low-alcohol cocktails made with vermouths and liqueurs, spirits heavy on sophisticated flavor and light (comparatively) in proof. Don’t drink these because they won’t get you incredibly buzzed. Enjoy them because they’re refreshing and surprising. The fact that you won’t need to chase them with Advil before bed (if you haven’t had 10 of them) is a bonus.
