When out with the lads and you’ve just headed into some swanky bar, I know, we all worry about ordering a cocktail in case our mates have a laugh. So we’ve put together a list of drinks you should know, as a chap, to pull apart the boys from the men and have something other than ‘just a beer’… we’re a bit more sophisticated than that, I’ll have you know!

#5: Irish Car Bombs – A drink not to be messed with. Down it they say. A shot glass of whiskey and Baileys Irish Cream, dropped into a pint of Guinness. A real man’s drink.

#4: Long Island Iced Tea – You will not get mistaken for a tea-totaler when you order this tea drink. Gin, vodka, tequila, rum, triple sec, and just about anything else the bartender can find.

#3: Whiskey Sour – Whiskey, egg whites, lemon juice & sugar. Simple & delectable.

#2: Gin & Juice – Snoop Dogg recommends. Gin, grapefruit & orange juice.

#1: Classic Manhattan – If Sinatra and the Rack Pack can deem this cocktail as a favorite, then we can go a step further and name this our #1 man’s drink. Bourbon, vermouth, bitters, & a stemmed cherry. Remember: this is a gentleman’s drink.
