There’s a common misconception that certain drinks are for guys, certain drinks are for girls, and those two worlds should never cross paths. We say that all drinks are for everyone and if you’re only limiting yourself to a “manly” scotch on the rocks, you are missing out on some good stuff. If you were a real man, you wouldn’t care about what other people think and you would easily be able to approach the bartender and order something most guys wouldn’t be caught dead with.
We’re not telling you to immediately go order a huge, hot pink alcoholic delight covered in whipped cream. You can start with one of the basics and work your way up from there. Here are a few “girly” drinks you need to try at least once in your life:
Daiquiris come in all sorts of flavors, but they’re especially good when you order a frozen variety in the summer time. It will generally be made with rum, citrus (usually lime juice), and sugar or another sweetener like a flavored syrup. Man up and go straight for the pink strawberry daiquiri, you won’t regret it.
“Cosmos” may be associated with Sex and the City, but don’t let that stop you from ordering one. They come in a martini glass, so you can always pretend it’s a martini if you want to chicken out. It’s a great combination of vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice and freshly squeezed lime juice.
Yeah, it’s blue. Don’t worry, everything is going to be just fine. Isn’t blue the color associated with guys anyway? Blue Hawaiians are basically inviting men to drink them. You’ll undoubtedly enjoy the mix of white rum, pineapple juice, blue curacao and cream of coconut. Just do it.
Margaritas are a total classic and if you haven’t tried one by now, get over yourself. It’s usually served on the rocks and is made from tequila, Cointreau and lime juice. To ease into things order a margarita on the rocks and save the frozen for then you’re feeling extra brave.
Sex on the Beach
You’re probably going to feel like a sorority girl ordering this, but grow a pair and get over it. You can’t beat the mix of vodka, peach schnapps, creme de cassis, orange juice and cranberry juice. Also, don’t laugh at the name when you order it, you’ll just look like a fool.
