If you're sporting a headache from Friday night's festivities, the last thing you want is a super-sweet brunch drink. The Melagrana ($12) at Pulino's may look like bubbly pink lemonade, but this prosecco cocktail is pucker-inducing from the addition of tart yuzu juice and fragrant Pama pomegranate liqueur. A splash of Tanqueray adds a piney herbal noteā€”if you're a fan of the South Side Fizz, this cocktail is just what the doctor ordered.
