    Anyone have any good mixed drinks ideas? I want to start making some nice cocktails to impress the girlfriend so any ideas would be useful.

    So far I've mastered a couple.

    Café Con Jose
    -Fill a shaker with crushed ice.
    -Add 2 oz Silver Tequila (Jose Cuervo Tequila is recommended)
    -Add 1 oz of condensed milk
    -Add 2 oz of brewed medium-roast coffee chilled.
    -Shake well.
    -Pour into short, round glasses and garnish with orange zest or kumquat


    Ocean Drive Mojito
    -Cut 1 lime into 4 segments
    -Place lime pieces in a tall glass with 1 teaspoon sugar
    -Muddle to release juices
    -Clap 12 fresh mint leaves between hands and drop into glass (do not muddle mint)
    -Fill glass with crushed ice
    -Add 1 oz Rum (Bacardi Superior recommended) and 1 oz Blue Curacao Liqueur.
    -Using a spoon free up lime segments at base of glass and stir to dissolve sugar.
    -Fill with soda water.
    -Garnish with blueberries and mint


    Key Lime Mule
    -Rub rim of mule glass with a lime wedge
    -Roll glass edge on a plate of crushed graham cracker crumbs
    -Fill a shaker with ice.
    -Add two scoops key lime sorbet
    -Add 1 oz Vodka
    -Shake until sorbet turns into liquid
    -Add 2 more scoops of key lime sorbet into your glass
    -Pour vodka/key lime mixture over sorbet into glass
    -Add 2 oz ginger beer
    -Garnish with slice of lime.

    Haha Jesus, fancy shit.

    Well, I know a White Russian is like an awesome flavoured alcohol milkshake:

    Quarter Vodka
    Quarter Kahlua
    Fill it up with milk!

    Or alter the alchy contents to your desire if you don't want to floor the lady.

    Yeah I pretty much had the same reaction as Matt. LOL.

    I keep it simple. Jack Daniels and Coke or if you want to be fancy Captain Morgan and Coke; it tastes like vanilla coke!


    And a good fruity drink for the ladies is Absoulte Raspberry Vodka mixed with Brisk lemonade. I came across this one as a surprise when she brought over raspberry vodka and since I hadn't gone shopping I had nothing to mix it with, so I borrowed my roommates carton of Brisk lemonade. It was yummy!

    Well my drinks were for your benefit guys. If you see one you like try them out and when you invite a lady to your place and make her that drink you'll seal the deal ;)

    I don't need any recommendations so extravagant I just want some new ideas be they simple or complex.

    I don't do mixed drinks very often... hell, nowadays I don't drink much anyway. When I do drink, I usually just have a couple of light beers.

    If I drink heavier and drink something that isn't beer, I usually get a shot or two of Southern Comfort mixed with Sprite (lemonade, whatever), then add ice and a slice of lemon.

    Don't laugh at me. Stop it. :p

    Pretty sure if you get a lady over to your place alone any kind of drinks will seal the deal.


    As for me, Vodka/Cranberry always. That's as creative as I care to get with alcohol.

    Sometimes when there's not enough punch packets of the same flavor, I mix two or three different ones.

    A Mexican place in Texas had the best mixed drink I've ever had. It was a frozen margarita with sangria mixed in. I had probably 3 more than I should have.

    Went to a work party and one of my coworkers showed off his 5 years or bar tending experience. Wow, talk about involved.

    I have a feeling Lethean and used44 will be able to add to this.

    My girl drinks straight whiskey. It's pretty great.

    Though I drink straight rum. It works out well.

    I like a White Russian here and there, but I usually have my glass of vodka strait with no ice.

    My favorite simple cocktail is brandy and ginger ale over lots of ice with a few pieces of lemon peel.

    Good luck with your lady winkwinkwink

    I don't know if this drink has a name, but if you mix ginger ale with spiced rum (Captain Morgan if you live in a dorm room, something like Mt. Gay if you want to impress and don't snicker) it tastes like cream soda.

    Ever had a dark and stormy? This is a strong tasting drink that'll put hair on your nose. You mix a black rum, like Gosling's Black Seal, with ginger beer and then you convulse as it's going down (but in a good way).

    Rum is my second least-favorite of the major liquors, but you can make some pretty tasty mixed drank with it.

    Long Island Iced Teas are kind of the adult Suicides, if you think about it.
