    Ok. I have a shot idea then... One ounce cranberry juice, on ounce chilled vanilla vodka, separate shot glasses, down the juice then chase with the vodka. It tastes just like strawberry cheescake.

    The manliest drink alive is not good enough so I went with the... ummm... least manliest. <In best goldmember accent> There is no pleasing you is there?

    EDIT: BTW, my wife canceled my man card membership years ago.

    I had one in 1982 and it was really great.

    Shake in iced cocktail shaker & strain
    1 oz apple brandy (3 cl, 1/4 gills)
    3/4 oz Yellow Chartreuse (2 cl, 3/16 gills)
    3/4 oz Benedictine (2 cl, 3/16 gills)
    1 dash aromatic bitters
    Fresh strawberry
    Serve in a cocktail glass (4.5 oz)

    Here is a really good margarita recipe:

    2 parts tequila (good stuff)
    1 part Grand Marnier or Triple Sec
    1 part fresh strained lime juice
    1 part simple syrup*

    Put in cocktail shaker with ice and shake about 30 seconds until really cold. Strain into glass.

    * Simple syrup: mix equal parts of sugar and water in a small sauce pan. Heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. Cool to room temperature.

    That's probably why it's called a Widow's Kiss, and not a, Widower's Kiss.

    Something I've been experimenting with - working title is Ginger Head. May be changed to Ginger Beard or Gale Force.

    2 shots of Old Monk rum (Gosslings may work too in a pinch)
    Teaspoon of brown sugar
    Half teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice (cin, nutmeg, ginger, etc...)
    Fresh ginger root
    Gingerale
    Lime juice

    Throw the ginger in a food processor with enough water to cover it - puree it as much as possible. Take 3-4 tablespoons of the liquid portion and throw it in a shaker with the brown sugar, rum, teaspoon or squirt of lime juice, and pumpkin spice. Shake well with ice, pour in glass, pour in the gingerale on top and gently stir. It'll frost up with a thick head.

    Tequila poured over a bowl of Cheerios?

    Tequila poured into a popsicle tray, then drank really cold since tequila won't freeze in a regular freezer?

    Use 100% Resposado tequila like Hornitos, and if you can find some key lime juice it's perfect.

    agreed, and depending on the scotch, a splash of water may be added.

    Vodka tonic with lime. Crisp, clean, refreshing, no after taste, not too un-manly.

    I'll usually use a tall glass (those POM tea glasses are perfect)filled about 2/3 with cubed ice (crushed melts too fast), with 2 or 3 shots of chilled vodka, top the rest off with the tonic, add a slice or 2 of lime.

    Even BETTER. Squeeze some lemon and lime juice. Freeze it into cubes. Add those to the glass instead of water ice cubes. When you add the vodka first, give it a minute to let it melt some of the fruity ice. Then add the tonic.

    Make it festive with a neon-colored bendy straw. Those are the best.
