4. Vinegar Hill House's Irish Coffee
Not that you need one, but this Brooklyn restaurant's interpretation of a standard Irish coffee is as good a reason as any to drink during the day. Fortunately, this cocktail ($9) made from Irish whiskey, coffee, and whipped cream is available on the brunch menu. 72 Hudson Avenue; 718-522-1018.
|Hot Apple Cider|
Warm cider is topped off with whiskey and garnished with an orange peel in this very stiff drink ($12). While you've likely had this cocktail before, the East Village bar's version will leave you happy you ordered it again. 344 Bowery; 212-388-0148.

2. Dutch Kills' Hot Toddy
This Long Island City bar has an entire menu of warm drinks including the A La Mode (bourbon, mulled cider and whipped cream) and the Bear Trap (bourbon, apple cider and honey butter). But their classic Hot Toddy ($11) -- made with whiskey, lemon juice, honey syrup, and cinnamon -- is light enough to forgive any holiday indulgences. 24-27 Jackson Avenue, Queens; 718-383-2724.
