8 Manly Cocktails That are Good for You

These alcoholic drinks will make you feel like Don Draper with a better life expectancy.
The fruit cocktail for your food pyramid. (adapted from The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks by David A. Embury)

1 & 1/2 oz. cognac
1 oz. Curacao
one lemon wedge, one lime wedge, one orange wedge, and berries

To make: Combine fresh fruit and Curacao in a shaker and muddle. Add cognac, shake with ice, and strain into a Julep mug (or a chilled double rocks glass) over crushed ice. Garnish with a mint sprig and fruits. “The liquor in this drink is close to 200 calories,” says Present, “but all the fresh fruit, and vitamins (particularly Vitamin C) and dietary fiber they bring, more than makes up for it.”
