5. Touche-tini at Touche Rooftop Lounge and Restaurants

The cocktail menu may be new to Touche, but this cucumber and basil beverage has some very familiar notes. The Touche-tini ($14) with Stoli, simple syrup, lemon juice, muddled cucumber and basil is light and herbaceous. Since it is practically a salad, you can keep on ordering them until the vodka hits.

4. Artichoke Sour at Dolce Italian

Artichokes are vegetables flowers thistles like no other and this drink will easily put you in a chokehold. The Italian, artichoke-based bitter liqueur known as Cynar is combined with lime juice, sugar, gin, egg whites and bitters for a cocktail with many layers before you get to the heart of it. Even better, the artichoke sour is only $8 during Happy Hour and the restaurant is soon to be featured on Bravo's Best New Restaurant.
