Mixologist Xavier Herit has written the book on cocktails. (He was the force behind the Daniel Boulud cocktail book.) He's found a new home at New York City's NoMa Hotel in SoHo and revamped their entire bar program. The Dude in the cult classic spawned an entire generation who now orders a White Russian without irony. Herit riffed on the classic cocktail with a splash of cold brew coffee. Perfect when you've woken up on the floor and discovered your rug has been stolen.
