The recent boom in handcrafted nonalcoholic beverages has produced its fair share of fun experiments with sugar and spice but very few drinks that you’d actually want to sip with food. At Tavernita, the housemade fizzy sodas—including a kicky ginger ale flecked with guindilla and a spa-appropriate blend of fresh cucumber juice, lemongrass, and pure cane sugar—roll over the tongue in waves, transitioning from acidic and spicy to sweet and mild, much like sangría. All those tiny Champagne-like bubbles prove an ideal match for a night of tapas—a way to reconnect with your inner nine-year-old without belittling your taste buds.
