Campari, $28

After a week of jury duty, a glass of white just won't cut it to settle my nerves, and a glass of red just makes me want to go to sleep - which I can't do, as my e-mail box is threatening to implode from the volume of mail that's piled up. So what am I drinking as I'm trying simultaneously to unwind and catch up on work? Campari and soda. The sweetness of the bright red liquor takes the edge off my nerves; the arresting, herbal bitterness helps shake off the last memories of boring waits and bickering attorneys. And the soda keeps it lower in alcohol (mixed 50/50, it's about 10 percent alcohol) so I can get on with my day ... even when it's actually night.
