Cosmos –This pink, Sex in the City, girly martini is actually one of the least girly martini’s out there. Despite the pink color, the Cosmo actually has its fair share of booze in it.
How to Make it  – Pour one part Vodka, one part triple sec, and two parts cranberry juice into a shaker with ice. Squeeze in some lime juice, shake and strain. pur
Why you should know it – Because she drinks it. This trendy alcoholic drink is a favorite of the ladies. She is much more likely to come over for a couple of cosmos than for a shot of well whiskey and a year old PBR. Unfortunately, she’s also much more likely to think your gay.

Bloody Mary’s –The undisputed king of breakfast drinks. There are hundreds of ways to make a bloody mary, so feel free to add your own touch.
Basic recipe – Bloody mary mix (Zing Zang’s), vodka, ice.
How to make it – If you want something a little more advanced, add two shots of vodka to a half cup of tomato juice, and then get creative. Popular additions are jalapeños, Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, lemons and limes, pepper, and celery. Some people even add clams or shrimp. Basically, go through your kitchen and see what feels good.
Why you should know it. Because breakfast is expensive and there is no better way to bite the hair of the dog.

Sangria –A classy party drink that is meant for outdoor consumption.. This punch drink is a tad bit classier than jungle juice, and doesn’t require you to purchase roofies.
How to Make it – Add a bottle of red wine and a bunch of fruit to a punch bowl. Done. You can’t go wrong with orange and lemon wedges, but you can also find fruits that will compliment your bottle of wine. Also, many people will add a few spoons of sugar, and a couple of cups of ginger ale or club soda. Sangria is another drink that can be modified in an infinite number of ways.
If you want to add a little extra kick, put a shot or two of brandy into the mix. It’s all about taste. Some people prefer to use a flavored brandy or a flavored vodka. If you really want to make a good sangria, you can soak your fruit in liquor the night before.
Why you should  know it- Because you can’t afford good wine. Sangria can make you feel classy as you squeeze the last few drops out of your box of wine.

Old fashioned –An old fashioned is a classic drink that will make you feel like an adult. It will also ease you into the world of straight bourbon drinkers…which I’m not sure is a good thing.
How to make it – Add sugar, a few dashes of angostura bitters, and a touch of water into a glass. Stir until the sugar is mostly dissolved. Add a cherry and an orange. Muddle, or smash, all of the ingredients together. Add ice, pour in bourbon to fill the glass.
Why you should know it – Because you have to learn how to muddle sometime.
