For the perfect salt rim, liquidize sea salt to make it finer, then run a lime wedge around the outside edge of the glass before dipping the rim in salt. Rimming only half the glass with salt gives the drinker the option of enjoying the cocktail with or without salt.
Great when made with freshly squeezed orange juice, this cocktail is very similar to the Buck's Fizz, which tends to have a higher proportion of Champagne. Also see the Grand Mimosa, basically the same drink charged with orange liqueur.
Grand Mimosa (Difford's)
As the name suggests, the orange of Grand Marnier heavily influences this drink. Basically a Mimosa or a Buck's Fizz (orange juice and champagne) with added oomph.

Few bartenders bother to shake this simple drink, instead they "build" by simply pouring ingredients into ice-filled glass and then briefly stirring to mix.
A layered version of the Seabreeze emerged and became popular in London during the 1990s.

Well-balanced tequila and zesty citrus with a sweet treat at the bottom.

A very simple cocktail, but when made with freshly squeezed oranges straight from the refrigerator this is a great brunch drink.
Moscow Mule (Hab und Gut)
My favourite cocktail. I can't tell you how much I love this one. Made right, this warms the cockles and makes you want another!
