The Ultimate Guide to Day Drinking

Proper daytime drinking requires the intestinal fortitude needed for marathons, not sprints. But it also requires a strategy (plus water and food, and did we say water?). Those rosé refills can land you in that sad, sad place where you nod off earlier than is socially acceptable. "You want to feel buzzed but also refreshed," says Natasha David, a bartender who worked under Keith McNally and Danny Meyer before opening Nitecap in New York City this year. "You want to go on a friend's roof and watch the sunset, not pass out in a cab." That's easier to avoid now, see more

There was a time when muddling mint in our mojitos was the zenith of fresh cocktails.

This summer, bartenders are latching on to another green ingredient: sugar snap peas. The sweet, crunchy stir-fry staple—iron-rich and packed with Vitamin C—adds texture and color to the season's leading libations. see more

Tom Hanks on the Least Comfortable Kind of Movie Set and Why He Rarely Plays the Bad Guy

Mr. Hanks, what kind of film shoots do you hate the most? The most uncomfortable you can be making a movie, I swear to God, is if you have to shoot a wedding scene for two weeks. A wedding scene is a nightmare. You have to wear a tuxedo every day, and it has to look nice, and they are always combing your hair. It's a drag and every day you have to pretend to be at the wedding for two days. I'd rather do a thing where I get beaten up for a couple of hours every day. see more
