There are many drinks a man should drink in his life. These 21 drinks will make sure that in your first legal year you experience a range of drink that can help inform your drinking decisions for years to come.
Long Island Iced Tea. If for no other reason than it’s usually the strongest drink you can order, this drink is a must for any newly of age man.
Bourbon and Coke. Bourbon is awesome, Coke (or Pepsi) is awesome. Together these two are incredible.
White Russian. If the dude abides then so should you.
A Shot of Jager. Drinking like a rock star is easy for anyone within reach of a bottle of Jagermeister and a shot glass. Odds are good you will never order only one of these in a bar. So be warned one shot of Jager will lead to many, many more.
Guinness. Every man should try this dark as night brew at least once, preferably in a pub, preferably in Ireland.
Irish Car Bomb. Drop. Drink. Repeat.
Manhattan. This classic drink tastes the way a drink is actually supposed to taste. Not sweet, not too bitter, but loaded with flavor that highlights the alcohol.
Rum and Coke. A favorite of drinking people everywhere, odds are good you’ve had one or two of these before. But ordering a properly made rum and Coke in a bar is an entirely different experience.
Tom Collins. The mixes may be sickly sweet, but a properly made Tom Collins is an immaculately refreshing drink perfect for spring afternoons.
Scotch On The Rocks. Whether you’re toasting to Bill Brasky or drinking alone feeling sad over a girl, scotch is the manliest drink.
Champagne. The official drink of celebrations everywhere, even a cheap bottle of champagne can completely change a night. Get champagne and get crazy.
Sake. Warm or cold sake is one of those beverage that perfectly depicts the region it’s from. Clean with a definite beer-ish flavor, sake is the drink of sushi houses everywhere.
A Margarita. Not frozen, preferably not from a mix. A true margarita tastes nothing like the sip your dad gave you at the Mexican restaurant in the mall. The real thing is a summer drink to be admired and longed for.
Martini. Gin, bitters, a little cold water. Stirred but not shaken. Shaking a drink breaks up more ice and waters the drink down. Yep, James Bond drank watered down drinks.
Jell-o Shot. Delicious, jiggly, deadly. Alcohol takes longer to hit you in a Jell-o shot. Eat too many of these and you will find yourself wrapped around a toilet puking in Technicolor.
Straight Liquor In a Glass. Drink this in a bar and people will admire you. Whether it’s vodka, whiskey, or any other liquor, this is a sign of a real drinker who truly appreciates the alcohol he’s drinking. Men will respect you, women will want you, and you feel like the man you truly are.
