When the subject of the ideal final meal comes up, in which one gets whatever one wishes for, instead of food I always think about the final drink. But not just a casual “one for the road.” I mean, if you could choose one beverage for the last sip you ever take, what would it be? Clear cold water may truly be the best drink of all (not too cold and no ice cubes, please), but stellar options include a frosty beer, a neat whiskey, a well-chilled Negroni, or a perfect espresso. However, the drinks described in this section are not necessarily in that category, even if some might qualify. For the most part, these beverages are meant to satisfy everyday desires.
