I don't drink cocktails

Despite the skills of the juggling bartender, I would still prefer a beer. But if I did fancy something more exotic I might sample these.

Do you have any favourite cocktails?


Wet Pussy
1 oz Chambord raspberry liqueur
2 oz Irish cream
6 oz Milk
Mixing instructions:

Put the Chambord, Irish Cream, and Milk or Creamer in a shaker with ice. Shake, Strain and pour into glass. You can use alot less milk and make a shooter out of it.
Splash of Lemon juice or Sour mix
Blend with ice, Strain & Serve up in a chilled cocktail glass
2 parts Southern Comfort
1 part irish cream
Dry & Sweet Vermouth
Pour over ice, Garnish with a lime wedge
Hawaiian/French Surfer on Acid
1 oz Chambord® raspberry liqueur
1 oz Malibu® coconut rum
1/2 - 1/3 oz Jagermeister® herbal liqueur
2 oz pineapple juice

Mix all ingredients together in a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes. Shake vigorously. Pour over ice cubes into an old-fashioned glass. It will be a bit frothy on top. Garnish with a cherry and lime wheel, and serve.

Damn, who knew there were so many sex drinks... Screaming Slippery Bald looks downright unappealing! butterscotch and kiwi???
But I'm liking sex on the beach. Never had it ... either of them.

I'm a red wine woman.. and for hard liquor: summer is normally Bombay with tonic. Winter is bourbon on rocks. Beer is ok, great to quench thirst on a hot day, but not my fave.
When I'm feeling frisky I order a Cosmopolitan!

I never knew what was in "Sex on the Beach". It sounds like one of those new-fangled martinis. I love Cosmos and Appletinis, but I think my all-time favorite mixed drink is a margherita!

How did I guess it would be you two to comment first!

df, I don’t think I’ve even scratched the surface of rude names and drinks. See sources above.

Ys&Bs. Have a margherita on me :)

I could almost go with a Hawaiian/French Surfer on Acid, Jamaica Me Crazy or Sexual Healing but really I would yearn for two fingers of single malt whiskey and two cubes of ice. Or a good hoppy beer.

Thank you, Andy! Now, I could use one of those green drinks, please! :-)

Ys&Bs, you deserve one.

I've just had a toffeeappletini - they are delicious!

Toffeeappletini, is that a martini with a toffee apple in it rather than an olive?
