Tell me about your favourite cocktails

I have a good reason for asking this. Last year I went to a resort in Mexico with my family and this year we are hopefully going again in December. The name of the resort is Barcelo Maya, it's south of Cancun, and I HIGHLY recommend it. It was amazing. It's one of those all-inclusive places and the booze is included too. I do not drink very much and I did not drink to excess while I was there (you can stifle those chuckles--I honestly did not). But I did drink more than usual! And I discovered I really enjoy cocktails, something I hadn't had much of before. The problem was, I came unprepared and didn't know much about cocktails. The result was that I mostly drank pina coladas (which I did love) and a couple of other things. I would have liked to try other stuff but I was too bashful to ask the bartenders or other people for suggestions. So this time, hopefully I'm going, and I want to go prepared! Tell me about some nice cocktails.

And believe me, I am really ignorant about these things, I didn't even ask for a margarita because I didn't know if you need to ask for a specific KIND of margarita or just a plain old margarita and I didn't want to look stupid. The other members of my family are at least as dumb about this stuff as I am.

I like a drink called a Madress. It's vodka, orange juice and cranberry.

Well...

I always love a good Cosmopolitan. (vodka, cran, triplesec, and lime juice)

Then I love a Cape Codder (cran & vodka)

I loooove margaritas - but they must be on the rocks and made with Cuervo.

I love Gin & Tonics! Whiskey Sour is good! Of course you have to have Margaritas! I don't know how good Rum-punch is down in Mexico, but when I went to Jamaica, they were great! They knock you on your ass too!

My favourite drink is Black Velvet: Guinness and Champagne.....It's the most delicious drink i have ever had in my whole life ( No kidding!)

But i also like simple stuff like a shot of tequila ( *sigh* I want to go back to Cancun!!!!!!), Sex on the beach,Margarita, etc , etc...

And no, i'm not an alcoholic if that's what you are thinking ! LOL

*Flavia*

How does a girl go up to a cute bartender and say "I want Sex on the Beach"? (And don't say "with conviction!")

What goes into one of those, anyway?

My fav cocktail is Tangeray & Tonic.

On occasions when I'm really drunk, I'm forced to drink a cocktail so eloquently named "Irish Car Bomb" (not PC). Its a 4/5 full pint of guinness with a 1.5 shots of Jameson.

If you want a drink that tastes like your favorite kid sandwich, try equal parts Chambord (rasberry liquer) and Franjelica (its a nutty liquer). The combo together is called "Peanut Butter and Jelly"

I'm going to have a beer.

I was going to say Black Velvet too - I drink them all the time but in the states their made with Guiness and hard cider - very good. I introduced the POPWhore to them in Chicago

One of my other favorites is absolute mandarin and tonic water. Just dont ever order them in Montreal because they dont know what the hell they are. I still dont know what exactly it was that I drank up there.

I've always wanted to try black velvets....
If you think asking for Sex on the Beach is bad, then ask your bartender for a blow job.


I'm a beer girl myself, but I love tequila and captain morgan's spiced rum. Captain and cokes are the best!
