Every week, it seems, I vow to cut back on cocktails and yet every night there I am again, ready to drink the day's stresses away. Hook & Ladder has the perfect remedy for this dilemma, the aptly named Fallin' Off d'Wagon ($9). It's a simple concoction—just bourbon and an apple-ginger shrub—with a full flavor profile. Strong but not bitter, slightly sweet but not sickly so. It goes down easy. Much easier than your week's been so far, apparently. Go ahead, have another. 1630 S Street, www.hookandladder916.com.
