The Midori Sour is an emblem of 1970s excess: sweet, bright and just about what you’d expect from a cocktail whose chief ingredient celebrated its debut at NYC’s Studio 54. Most versions disguise the melon flavors of the Midori (made from Yubari and muskmelons) with corn syrup–rich sour mix. This recipe, mixed with fresh-squeezed fruit juices and topped with soda water, brings the drink dancing into the 21st century.

Saffron NOLA is a heartwarming modern Indian restaurant from the Vilkhu family, long beloved locally for their pop-up restaurant. The elegant space is enhanced by general manager and bar director Ashwin Vilkhu’s cocktails, showcasing Indian ingredients while riffing on classics. Inspired by a bedtime elixir of warm milk, honey and turmeric (which Ashwin’s mom would give him before bed), the Anti-Inflammatory also plays off a New Orleans’ staple cocktail, the Brandy Milk Punch.
