After a night on the line, most chefs have a go-to drink, from cheap beer to a house bartender's expert cocktail. Here, star chefs reveal their favorite drinks.
When it comes to cocktails, Joe Beef chef Frédéric Morin is a simple man. He typically sticks with two-ingredient drinks like Campari and soda or gin and tonic. “Right now I love a cocktail with soda water, where the ice is big and cold and the soda water is so bubbly that it itches,” he says. “Take a 2-ounce pour of Johnny Walker and a good splash of super bubbly water over a big piece of ice that doesn’t melt and dilute the drink. When your drink sparkles till the end, and stays ice-cold, that, for me, is the perfect cocktail.”
