Don’t know what this is called, but UV Blue and either lemonade or Rockstar / Red Bull is AWESOME. I also like a good Blue Maui + Mountain Dew.

You might try picking up a cocktail book at Barnes and Nobles, there are usually a ton in the clearance section for cheap.  You can pick out a few that you like and try them at home.  We do this sometimes just for fun.  We will pick up the airline type bottles so we don’t have a ton of stuff we will not drink laying around. 

(just a side note, try that melon liquor in hot chocolate.  Sounds terrible, but it really rocks.  Years ago a liquor rep turned me onto these)

Something simple and not-sweet, like a gin and tonic or vodka tonic maybe?

What about champagne and pear vodka? You can get away with a cheaper champagne since it’s a mixer (there’s a $10.99 bottle at Trader Joe’s that is perfect! Just make sure it is a brut (dry) version!). Pretty much any pear vodka will do 🙂

since you already have something fruity i would go with something more bubbly and acidic, maybe a whiskey sour or a long island ice tea?

Whiskey Sour                                                                             

Shake the whiskey, lemon juice, and sugar vigorously with ice; then strain over ice into a chilled cocktail glass, Old Fashioned glass, or highball glass. Garnish with an orange or lemon slice (or both) and a maraschino cherry.

 

Long Island Ice Tea

  • 1/2 ounce vodka
  • 1/2 ounce gin
  • 1/2 ounce tequila
  • 1/2 ounce light rum
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce triple sec
  • 1 teaspoon superfine sugar
  • Cold cola
  • Wedge of lemon

Shake the vodka, gin, tequila, rum, lemon juice, triple sec, and sugar with ice; then strain into a chilled collins glass filled with ice. Add cola to fill, gently stir, and garnish with a lemon wedge.

I hope this helps Smile

Since one of your coctails is tequila and fruit – I’d suggest to go the other way and go completely traditional with either a vodka/tonic or gin & tonic basic. No fruit, no fluff – just a basic cocktail for your hardcore traditional drinkers.
