8 Cocktails that are a Girl’s Best Friend

30 May , 2015  

Dressed to kill at a party but holding a clumsy drink in your hand; doesn’t that just about ruin the impact you were aiming for? In a world where appearances are important, our drinks become accessories and not just something to kill time with. And ladies, it is time to get a drink that says you know what you want and what looks good on you. These elegant eight have the colour, the spunk, and the verve that a drink that deserves you should.

1. Cosmopolitan

Ingredients – Vodka, Cointreau, Cranberry juice, and lime juice


Popularised by the women in the Tele Series ‘Sex and the City’, the ‘Cosmo’ has established itself as a posh drink and the elegant drink it straight up.

2. Purple Nurple

Ingredients – Malibu, triple sec, blue curacao, Cranberry juice


Definitely a girly shot. It is popular as a sweet shot, be careful not to down too many of these as the sugar content in them will leave you feeling very unladylike.

3. Piña Colada

Ingredients – Rum, Pineapple Juice, Coconut cream, Pineapple wedge and a couple of pitted maraschino cherries


A smooth cocktail for the lady who likes the blending of coconut cream and pineapple juice. Typically a day time (brunch) drink, but then again it is day somewhere!

4. Appletini

Ingredients – Vodka, Apple Juice, Apple Schnapps or Liqueur


The apple twist to a classic martini. Another sweet drink with a tiny sour kick, so you have to be careful to not have too much if you don’t want a bad hangover. 

5. Margarita

Ingredients – Tequila, Cointreau, Lime Juice


Instead of downing tequila shots one after another, hold on to a margarita. A margarita is classier and definitely speaks of a lady who knows her alcohol than a college kid downing shots in competition.

6. The French 95

Ingredients – Sparkling wine or Dry Champagne or Prosecco, Bourbon, Orange Juice, Simple syrup, lemon juice


Another sweet drink, this time with bourbon for a change. The sparkling wine makes it a refreshing drink unlike one of those drinks whose sweetness just overwhelms you.

7. The Embassy Cocktail 

Ingredients – Brandy or Cognac, Orange Liqueur, Golden rum, Lime Juice, Bitters


For the women who enjoy their brandy and appreciate the sweetness that the orange liqueur brings to it. A drink that will have your taste buds revelling in the warm glow of the alcohol and the sweet kick of the liqueur.

8. The Bronx 

Ingredients – Gin, Dry Vermouth, Sweet Vermouth, Orange Juice


Once a popular rival to the Martini, the Bronx is simply the orange version of the same. It is a superiorly elegant drink. Just the right amount of mild sweetness for women who don’t appreciate the sticky sweetness of cocktails, this drink is smooth and definitely chic.
