While we’ve never really bought into drawing gender lines down a cocktail menu, we are conscious of the statement a cocktail order can make. When a woman strolls up to a bar and orders whiskey on the rocks, she can immediately get some props from the bartender.

These days, it’s considered sexy when a women orders a “man’s” drink. Just be advised: the men who can’t handle you might be scared off on a first date.

If you’re looking for an alternative to the sugary drinks that are typically called “women’s” drinks, here are some of our favorites:

Whiskey & Ginger: Order your favorite whiskey on the rocks with a splash of Ginger Ale and a lime wedge. This is perfect for summer and is easily drinkable for the newly converted whiskey lover.

Gin Martini: If you’ve been reading our blog, you know that Gin is in. Make sure you let the bartender know how you like it, dirty or with a twist.

Whiskey Sour: This is an easy choice, if you’re in the mood for something sour. Add some of your favorite garnishes and you’re done.

Salty Dog: Looking for a breakfast cocktail? Skip the mimosa and get a Salty Dog. Vodka and grapefruit juice, with a touch of salt, will wake you up with a kick.

    Jack Honey on the rocks is my favorite, you should add that to the list! Can you please write about how “Men ordering chick drinks, is NOT sexy?”! Sooo many good ones!

    Can never go wrong with some whiskey and ginger ale. Lime can be optional. Either way, I know what I am ordering tonight. I have my girl friend to thank for first turning me onto these.
