18 Girly Cocktails That Are Perfect For Men And Women Alike

There are many so-called girly cocktails out there. You know the ones, they’re often pink or bubbly and might have a cocktail umbrella for good measure. Others, like Long Island iced tea, are considered girly despite the appearance of the drink.

Men often suffer ridicule if they choose to order ‘girly’ drinks. They’re often expected to stick to straight spirits, beer, or a relatively small selection of masculine cocktails. While men do drink cocktails, they’re certainly in the minority. The number of men who drink cocktails that look girly is even lower again.

Here’s the thing. There’s nothing wrong with girly cocktails. Many of them taste amazing. And, perhaps more relevantly, these cocktails often pack a punch. Cocktails may include multiple types of alcohol, often in a surprisingly large drink.

Besides, why should the appearance of the drink matter? Torturing yourself with a drink that you don’t particularly like just seems silly, especially when there are so many delicious alternatives out there.


As pay per click advertisers, we get access to the other side of the search engines. They tell us how many times a word, or phrase gets searched for. This is the basis of our research.

It’s not just the root word like sidecar or screwdriver. It also includes a qualifier word like cocktail, or drink, because people searching for screwdrivers and sidecars, may be looking for motorcycle parts, tools, or something other than cocktails.

It’s also based on intent. So it’s not just a qualifier along with a root word, as in Sidecar Cocktail, or Screwdriver Drink, because those searches might be due to curiosity. So to qualify searches even further, there also had to be intent to make the cocktail, as in “how to make” a Screwdriver, or Sidecar “Recipe” or Hurricane “Ingredients.”

The search volume for the qualifier phrases, and the intent phrases, were added together to come up with the numbers. So in the table below, Mojito in the #1 spot was searched on average, 654,000 times per month, whereas the French Martini in the #50 spot was searched for 24,000 times per month.

TikTokers Are Turning Their Corona Beers Into Seriously 'Gram-Worthy Cocktails

Forget whipped coffee and feta pasta, because the latest viral TikTok recipe transforms a Corona beer into the prettiest tropical cocktail. While the trend originally generated buzz in October 2020, the Corona Sunrise recipe on TikTok is making waves on the "For You" page once again as we head into spring — and chances are you already have the ingredients at home. If you're 21 years or older, here's how to make TikTok's twist on a tequila sunrise and see if the cocktail really lives up to the hype.

Like a traditional tequila sunrise, TikTok's Corona Sunrise features a mix of tequila, grenadine syrup (a non-alcoholic mixture made with pomegranate juice), and orange juice. To make TikTok's version, however, you'll be using a Corona beer and making the whole cocktail in the bottle.

Not only will you be cutting down on clean-up, but you can expect a finished sip that's 'Gram-worthy, and — according to numerous TikTokers who've tried it — very delicious.

First things first, you'll want to take a long swig of corona beer. According to TikToker @KenDogKenny, you need to open a bottle of the beer and take a gulp until the beer is a little bit below the bottleneck. Next, add a splash of your tequila of choice (it's probably best to start with a small amount), and then pour in orange juice until you're almost to the top of the bottle. To finish off the sip, pour in a splash of grenadine and, if you're feeling fancy, stick in a lime. Before imbibing, mix it all up by covering the top of the bottle and turning it upside down. (Pro tip: It might be best to do the mixing over the sink in case of spills.) Finally, enjoy your incredibly

As of March 18, the tag #CoronaSunrise has 45 million views and numerous videos showing people trying their own twist on the recipe. As always, when trying a TikTok cocktail recipe, you'll want to adjust the amount of the ingredients used to taste and use a brand of tequila that you personally like. If you're not into mixing tequila with beer, you could always nix the boozy addition and get the colorful sip with the orange juice and grenadine — and if you want it totally alcohol-free, you could try adding OJ and grenadine to a glass with ginger ale or other light-colored sip.

Chances are you didn't see it coming that a cocktail using Corona beer and tequila would be blowing up on TikTok on 2021, but cheers to adding a tasty (and very easy) sip to your go-to drinks.


THE GREEK VEGAN

Tears of Chios Mastiha Cocktail, Adapted from GB Rooftop Garden in Athens, Greece and Jules Catering by Jacqueline Anderson

Summer is just the time to kick back and sip cool cocktails with friends. Regardless of whether you do it from the comfort of your own backyard, or if you go down to the local hotspot, as long as you’re equipped with the tastiest cocktails, you’re bound to have a great time. If you’re making them yourself, make sure that you get good fake ids so you can buy the alcohol you need to create these cocktails without being questioned. This is all part of the fun after all. In that spirit, we’ve gathered together five of our favorite Greek cocktail recipes to share with you!

Tears of Chios Mastiha Cocktail

This lovely brings the taste of mastiha, a gum like resin from Chios – my dad’s side of the family is from Chios so this one is a family favorite!

  • 2 ounces Skinos Mastiha Liqueur
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 1 ounce fresh-squeezed lime juice
  • 1 ounce agave
  • 4 red grapes, plus extra for garnish
  • 4 fresh mint leaves, plus extra for garnish

Muddle grapes and mint leaves in a cocktail shaker. Add the remaining ingredients with ice and shake vigorously. Strain and serve over ice and garnish with grapes and mint leaves.

Greek Mojito

For you mojito lovers, this is muddling magnificence my friends – that’s all I can say. Actually, I can say more, much much more about the amazingness here but I’ll let you just taste it instead!

  • 4 mint sprigs
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces Metaxa brandy
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • ice
  • 1 ounce chilled club soda

In a cocktail shaker, muddle the mint with the brown sugar and lime juice. Add the Metaxa, lemon juice and ice. Shake well and strain into an ice-filled highball glass. Top with the club soda.

Santorini Sunrise

Try a Santorini Sunrise and you’ll know a real taste of heaven. An especially pretty drink, I’ve enjoyed this cocktail at Molyvos in NYC a number of times and it never disappoints. Found the recipe in Saver Magazine a couple of years ago and it’s become a party staple around here!

  • 2 slices pink grapefruit, quartered (8 total pieces)
  • 4 mint leaves, plus more for garnish
  • 2 tsp. honey (Greek honey, if available or substitute agave nectar)
  • 2 oz. ouzo
  • 3 oz. freshly squeezed pink grapefruit juice
  • 1 oz. Campari

Aegean Fizz

I first found this beautiful brandy based drink back a few years ago in an old issue of Imbibe Magazine. The original recipe includes one egg white and though it has been suggested to me that aquafaba might be the perfect substitute here, I simply omit the egg white with wonderful, albeit less fizzy, results.

  • 2 oz. Metaxa 7-Star brandy
  • 1 oz. fresh blood orange juice
  • 3/4 oz. cinnamon bark syrup (recipe below)
  • club soda

Dry shake (meaning, shake without ice) the Metaxa with the blood orange juice for 20 seconds. Then add ice and the cinnamon bark syrup to the shaker and shake vigorously for 20 seconds. Strain into a glass and top with club soda. Add the twist by squeezing the peel side down atop the drink and rubbing around the rim. Lay the cinnamon stick across the top of the glass.

Cinnamon Syrup
1 cup water
1 cup sugar in the raw
3 cinnamon sticks

Mix water, sugar and cinnamon sticks in a small saucepan and heat on high until sugar dissolves, then simmer for 5 minutes. Discard cinnamon sticks, cool and bottle. Refrigerate for up to two weeks.

Ouzo and Coke

Ok, this may not sound very inspired but it IS fun and pretty traditional really. Couldn’t be simpler and, yes, it’s sweet but not in an overly so way. The licorice of the ouzo just goes so well with whatever the crazy-chemical flavors in Coke. You must serve this over ice though and I do suggest letting it sit for a bit to just every so slightly water down the drink. Worth going out and buying a can of Coke for!

1970s Cocktails & Disco Drinks

Iconic cocktails mark every decade as much as charting songs, fashion and design. People remember, or think they remember what they were drinking and these memories link to significant events in their lives. So, what were the big cocktails of the 1970s and are they worth revisiting today?

The Disco Era is said to have been "born on Valentine's Day 1970, when David Manusco opened The Loft in New York City, and it rapidly faded in 1980". With disco came flared trousers, Saturday Night Fever (released 23rd March 1978) and Disco Drinks - the sleazier the name the better. This was the decade when the relatively innocent-sounding Sloe Gin Fizz was combined with the Screwdriver to create the Slow Screw, which then inevitably became the Slow Comfortable Screw Up Against The Wall. All these drinks feature in the cocktail bible of that decade, Stan Jones' 1977 Jones' Complete Bar Guide. The double entendres continued through the 1970s and into the 80s to spawn a large Slow Screw family of cocktails.

The fondue set and the Hostess Trolley were at their height of popularity during the 1970s, as was the dinner party where they were shown off to the bell-bottom jeans and platform shoe clad neighbours. After dinner would come liqueurs - the likes of Drambuie, Grand Marnier and Bénédictine, poured at room temperature from cocktail cabinets or home bars into nifty little liqueur glasses. Galliano was the most popular liqueur in America during the decade and so had a dramatic influence on cocktail recipes of the time (like St-Germain in the last decade). The huge influence on cocktails during the 1970s was the start of vodka's ascendancy - an influence that would last through the next three decades.

Of course, cocktails which were popular during the seventies weren't necessarily created in the 1970s, in the same way that the Porn Star Martini, which has proved such a massive hit in the teenies, was created by Douglas Ankrah at the start of the previous decade (2002). Hence, below I've listed cocktails born during the 1970s (in bold) as well as older drinks that enjoyed a revival or their heyday during the seventies (click names for recipes).

Blue Hawaii - At the start of season six of the Mad Men television series, Don Draper is served a Blue Hawaiian, the most popular of the blue curaçao cocktails which emerged in the 1970s and grew in popularity during the 1980s. There is some confusion between a Blue Hawaii and a Blue Hawaiian - the Blue Hawaiian is blended with cream of coconut.

Godfather - The Godfather film was released in 1972 and by the time Jones' Complete Bar Guide was published in 1977, The Godfather Cocktail (with scotch) was joined by The Godmother (with vodka) and The Boss (with bourbon).

Golden Cadillac - Luxuriant and creamy this has two key ingredients for this decade: Galliano and orange juice.

Grey Hound to quote Jones "this is a Salty Dog with no salt - or a Tailless Dog."

Harvey Wallbanger - Created in 1952 by Donato "Duke" Antone and heavily advertised from 1973 onwards to promote sales of Galliano liqueur [Harvey Wallbanger history].

Merry Widow(er) - So popular was the Merry Widow that it evolved with different versions - Jones' Complete Bar Guide (1977) lists five variations including the Merry Widow Fizz.

Moscow Mule - the Moscow Mule was created 1941-46 but remained popular through the 1950s, 60s and 70s as vodka, the spirit on which it's based, grew in popularity.

Paradise Cocktail - another cocktail that proved so popular as to inspire numerous subtle variations: Paradise #2, and Paradise #3.

Piña Colada - The Piña Colada was created in 1952 (probably) but enjoyed its height of popularity during the 1970s and into the 1980s.

Pink Lady - named after a play of the same name in 1912, The Pink Lady enjoyed a revival in the mid-1940s and endured into the 1970s.

Pink Squirrel - probably created during and popular through the 1970s, the Pink Squirrel is now hard to replicate due to the scarcity of crème de noyeaux.

Salty Dog - References from the 1940s suggest that there was originally a gin based Salty Dog with lime juice and a teaspoon of salt, but the drink we recognise today with grapefruit and a salt rimmed glass came about thanks to the rise of vodka. (Without salt this becomes a Greyhound - see above.)

Singapore Sling - Although created sometime between 1899-1915, this fruity tall cocktail was made for the 1970s and 1980s [Singapore Sling history].

Sloe Gin Fizz - Sloe gin was a very popular liqueur during the 1970s, and indeed the earlier decades when this drink was created.

Slow Screw - Somebody, somewhere, sometime during the 1970s took the popular Screwdriver cocktail and swapped out the vodka for sloe gin. Little did they know that they'd started a family of Slow Screw cocktails.

Snowball - as a child of the 1960s this is the first cocktail I can remember - my father used to mix advocaat liqueur and lemonade for me and my sister while he made G&Ts for the adults. This Snowball made with advocaat is a drink that is quite specific to the UK and Jones' Complete Barguide published in Los Angeles, California in 1977 lists three different recipes for a Snowball but none of them contain advocaat.

Stinger - a drink that dates from the 1950s which enjoyed a resurgence during the 1970s. It's an after-dinner cocktail worthy of revisiting today.

Tequila Sunrise - orange juice was the most popular mixer during the 70s. Try this recipe - it's tasty!

Tom Collins - This drink from the early to mid-1800s [Tom Collins history] has proved enduring.

White Russian - probably created in the preceding decade, the White Russian became one of the biggest drinks of the 1970s. Like so many of the other drinks above, proof that it can take a decade or more for a cocktail to become popular.
