Scott Beattie, at Napa Valley's ultralux Meadowood Resort takes to mixing fortified wines – aperitifs really, like vermouth – with sodas and bitters to create what are effectively half-strength cocktails. "It makes sense on a lot of levels," he says. "If you've got a long night ahead, you want to pace yourself."
