Bacardi Cocktail (IBA)
This classic salmon-pinky drink perfectly combines and balances the light rum with the rich sourness of lime juice and the sweetness of pomegranate syrup.
Ramos Gin Fizz (IBA)
#54 in Top 100
One of the great classic cocktails. The perfect balance of sweet and sour is enhanced by the incredibly smooth, almost fluffy mouthfeel.
Hemingway Special (IBA)
A true Hemingway Special should be served without the addition of sugar. However, Hemingway had a hardened palate and more delicate drinkers may prefer adding some simple syrup.

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.

#24 in Top 100

Tommy's Margarita (IBA)
#52 in Top 100
The flavor of agave is king in this simple Margarita, made without the traditional orange liqueur.
Yellow Bird (IBA)
A sweet and sour cocktail with four different fruits, rum and a splash of Galliano.
Strawberry Daiquiri (Difford's)
#23 in Top 100
A popular drink in Cuba where it is known as a Daiquiri de Fresa.
Not your typical daiquiri, it tastes just like when you bite into a ripe white peach in the middle of summer.
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!
