Here's a list of drinks (and their ingredients) which will insure that you never look dumb in front of a bartender again! Memorize at least three!

Kamikaze: Muddled limes, vodka, triple sec (Cointreau's way better!), served straight up.

Cosmopolitan: A Kamikaze with a splash of cran.

Lemon Drop: Vodka, muddled lemons with a dash of sugar, served straight up with a sugared rim. (Can also be served as a shot served with lemon.)

Amaretto Lemonade: Same as a Lemon Drop, but with a little more sugar and a dash of amaretto (Hey, barkeep! Light on the amaretto!), rocks.

Madras: Vodka, o.j., cran.

Seabreeze: Vodka, grapefruit, cran.

Frantini: Vodka martini with a whisper of Frangelico (hazelnut liqueur), twist/cherry garnish.

Mudslide: Equal parts vodka, Kahlúa, Baileys. Order it layered, shaken/ straight or rocks.

Collins: Any booze with sour and soda. Tom = gin. Otherwise, specify your liquor.

Daiquiri: Order blended and flavored to insure your bartender's disapproval. Order a simple lime daiquiri on the rocks with sugar on the rim, and she'll only raise a curious brow.

Planter's Punch: Light rum, o.j., sour, float dark rum and grenadine, rocks, lemon/cherry garnish.

Perfect Manhattan: Specify your whiskey or you'll get the cheeep stuff. Try Maker's or VO, 1/2 sweet and 1/2 dry vermouth. Make it extra cold with a twist, straight up.

Old-Fashioned: A bitters-soaked sugar cube muddled with an orange and a cherry, whiskey, and soda on the rocks.

Tequila Sunrise: Grenadine, tequila, & o.j., in that order. Rocks.
