The cocktails at Daniel will reinvent your idea of a mixed drink. With lots of seasonal cocktails on hand there’s no need to stray from the signature Smokey Bandit, prepared with Ilegal Joven mezcal, jalapeño, orange curaçao, fresh pineapple and lime juice — but you can. The Take It Slow, made with Nolet Silver Gin, Amaro Montenegro and Bitter Truth Sloe Gin, proves mildly addictive, and drinks like the Buddha, mixed with Buddha’s Hand Lemon Infused Akvinta Vodka, muddled fennel and lime juice, will remind you with every sip which season it is. In fact, any one of the specialty elixirs at Daniel should guarantee a spectacular start to a night at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star New York restaurant.
