If You Want a Mood Boost
The Drink: Kin Euphorics High Rhode ($39)
What It Tastes Like: You can drink it straight, but I recommend mixing High Rhode with something else to soften its strong, herby flavor — just like you would for hard liquor. I enjoy the floral and tart elements that make it truly taste as though I'm drinking a cocktail. I personally love mixing mine with ginger ale, but it goes great with pineapple juice too.
How it Makes You Feel: OK, this drink actually does put me in a better mood, and I totally get why it's great for happy hours (socially-distanced or over Zoom, of course). It takes the edge off of a stressful day the same way a glass of wine would, minus the headache.
