I really enjoy fancy cocktails. I do! They have fun names and they let you try new flavors and liquors. However, I do have a few go-to drinks I know I can always fall back on and be happy with while out and about on the town. No menu-reading required!
1. Vodka with Club Soda and Lime
This drink is the one drink that cannot be messed up. It’s refreshing and not at all sweet. It’s my go-to when I want (or need) to be okay the next day.
2. Moscow Mule
You’re going to notice a trend with me and clear liquor drinks. They are my poison of choice for sure. Moscow Mules are honestly just delicious. Ginger beer is lightly carbonated, sweet, and has a biting flavor that mixes perfectly with vodka. Add in the lime and now we have a party!
I love margaritas. They’re sweet, tequila makes me feel good, and the salt rim balances the sweet drink perfectly. Ole!
When it comes to beer, I’ve identified a few types of brews that agree with my palette. Hefeweizen is light, often has a citrus-y flavor, and most importantly – not bitter. When it comes to drinkability, this type of beer is at the top of the list.
5. Dirty Shirley
This is my pick for weddings/fancy events. It brings me right back to a childhood favorite, but my friend vodka comes in clutch to make it “adult”. Who doesn’t love Sprite and grenadine? Like really.
