10 Sips from Taste of the Nation, NYC

[Photographs: Christine Tsai]

Monday night's Taste of the Nation event in New York brought together an impressive lineup of chefs and bartenders to help raise money to combat childhood hunger. When mixologists from Employees Only, Gramercy Park Hotel, Pegu Club, Vandaag, 1534, and Death & Co. (plus many others) are on hand shaking up cocktails, you know you're going to drink well. (Perhaps too well for a Monday night.)

The classics were tasty, but we were especially impressed with the drinks that incorporated unusual ingredients such as coconut water and shaved fennel. Check out all the cocktails in the slideshow ยป
