Ever wondered what guys prefer to drink at nightclubs? Meet the top 10 tipples men buy as the night falls…
The Old Fashioned: The Quiet Classic
This cocktail is made by muddling sugar with bitters, followed by adding alcohol, generally whiskey or brandy, and a twist of citrus rind. Best drunk before the nightclub is packed.
Mojito: The Refresher
The traditional Cuban drink, consisting of five ingredients: white rum, sugar, fresh lime juice, soda water, and mint. Popular variations include mango, raspberry and frozen mojitos. For a ‘rummier’ mojito, use a dark rum.
Long Island Tea: The Punch
The drink is nothing like tea, but packs a proper punch. Mixed with a strong concoction of tequila, vodka, light rum, triple sec, gin, and a dash of cola. Health warning: try not to have too many of these.
Martini: The Smooth One
The classic martini is made with gin and vermouth, and includes an olive or rind of lemon. Made hugely popular by James Bond. Should you want to drink it like him, tell the bartender to make it ‘shaken, not stirred.’
Moscow Mule: THE Vodka Drink
This is a classic cocktail made with vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice and garnished with a wedge of lemon. Variations include ‘Summer Mule’ with muddled berries and ‘Spicy Mule’ with jalapeño and extra lime or lemon juice. Why not try the whole range if your favourite spirit is Vodka.
Caipirinha: The Relaxer
Brazil’s national drink: simply made with cachaça, sugar and lime. The glass is filled with ice, to slowly melt and mix with the alcohol. Make sure to sip this drink- although small, it’s not a shot.
Rum/Whiskey/Vodka and Coke: The Standard Drink
If made with lime, and dark or light rum, it’s called a ‘Cuba Libre.’ Most people just call it ‘Rum and Coke.’ The spirit can be exchanged to Vodka or Whiskey, depending on what spirit you fancy.
Beer: Your Best Buddy
Of course beer had to make an appearance: Easy to carry with you around the club and the most popular alcoholic drink in the world. This drink can be enjoyed many times throughout the night without too many problems the next day.
Tequila: It Makes You Happy
Ah, so we are at the shots stage of the night. Can you hear the shouts of ‘Teeeequilaaaa?’ Lick that salt off your hand, down your tequila shot and bite the lemon because that’s how it’s done! Just be sure to have some Paracetamol for the morning…
Jaeger Bombs: The Hangover
The one to keep you dancing the night away, but be sure to find some mints for that terrifying breath if you want to woo any lovely ladies. Ready? Drop that shot of Jägermeister into the Redbull and who knows what the night will bring… Other than tomorrow’s hangover.
