Champagne cocktails are sometimes thought to be girly drinks, but there are some that could totally put hair on your chest. This one, The French 75, is one of those. Or at least it normally is with its big blast of gin and very little else to dress it up. See Recipe.
Cinnamon Whiskey Sour
In this tasty twist on a whiskey sour, fresh lime juice replaces the usual lemon, and homemade cinnamon syrup adds a spicy warmth to the cocktail. It’s served accented with candied ginger and Luxardo cherries, the deeply flavored doyennes of the maraschino family. See Recipe.
The Whiskey Smash is as classic as a cocktail can get. It is a simple drink and you can think of it as a citrusy take on the famous Mint Julep. It’s a perfect way to dress up your favorite bourbon and a refreshing delight for everyday drinking. See Recipe.
Tom Collins Cocktail
The Tom Collins is a perfect example of what a man’s cocktail should taste like, gin, lemon juice, club soda and a hint of sugar on the rocks. … No man can go wrong drinking a manly drink that has the ability to be smooth and tough at the same time. See Recipe.
If drinks were college coeds, from cardigan-wearing scotch-and-sodas to sorority row cognacs, then the gimlet would be “everyone’s girl.” It’s classic, straightforward, and always agreeable. Though using gin is the way to go for purists, the Gimlet Girl is totally fine with you using vodka. See Recipe.
