Long Island iced tea.
All the old ones from back int days of American prohibition. The ones that look harmless but can blow your head off, as the contain most of the bar…
Depends on the occasion really though.
My favourite joke on the subject…
Man walks into a particularly rough pub, asks the equally rough landlord for a lager top. [gruff voice] ‘sorry, we don’t do cocktails’ [gruff voice]Posted 4 years agoStoatsbrotherMember
Mojitos, Warsaw Pact, margarita, martini, espresso martini, In fact anything clear or classic.
Having said which, who cares… Go for it. A decent mango daiquiri is rather nice.
I’d probably avoid cosmopolitans till people forget about sex and the city. Don’t, repeat, don’t order the cocktail named after the bar you are in, unless it has been adopted world wide. Done this too many times. They are always awful.
And yes, Bloody Mary , but only if they do have celery salt.Posted 4 years agoStonerSubscriber
At university a friend and I used to rent ourselves out as cocktail barmen for parties. Was a hoot. Alex went on to write his dissertation on cocktails and cocktail culture of the early 20th century. Got a First for it. It’s a great read, especially his “History of the Martini” and all the authentic recipes and interviews with ancient flapper girls he researched.
And mine’s a mojito (white rum only please!).Posted 4 years ago
