Have you ever had the slightest moment of panic every time it’s finally your turn to order at a bar and the bartender says, “What can I get you?” This may be the first time you’ve legally entered a bar after turning 21 (Happy Birthday Queen, if that’s the case!). I mean, I’m sure this isn’t your first sip of alcohol, but it might be your first time ordering it for yourself. Or, maybe you have a big date coming up and you want to watch ~profesh~ order your drinks at the bar. Really understand that. It just might be that you haven’t been to a bar in a while and need a little refresher course to mix it up (pun intended), even if you already have a drink order.
Don’t even worry if you don’t have a specific drink in mind before heading to the bar. If the bar isn’t very busy, Kenta Goto, owner of Go to the bar and Bar Goto Niban in New York City, suggests chatting with the bartender to find out what signature cocktails or most popular drinks are on the menu, and let them guide you based on your own flavors and taste preferences.
To help you get started before you hit the bars, we’ve rounded up all the best cocktails out there: there’s something for vodka drinkers, for tequila lovers, even if you’re not sure yet if you are one, and a few drinks for those who like their booze a bit lighter. “All of the drinks I mention here are classic cocktails, and most bartenders should know how to make them right. These classics never go out of style, and more importantly, they’re delicious,” says Goto. We would never cheat on you, would we?
Whether you’re looking for sugary drinks, fruity drinks or slightly more alcoholic drinks, here are the best drinks to order at a bar.
