    Pint of fun:
    Double vodka, orange vk and lemonade

    Pint of magic:
    Blue wkd + half a pint of cider

    Gin + lemonade + lime juice
    All of those sound quite nice. I'll give them a try.

    2 shots of vodka, 1 shot of archers, equal amounts of orange and cranberry juice. yuuum
    This sounds lovely, don't like cranberry juice though so it'll have to be orange.

    Whisky and lemonade is your usual? Have you tried whisky and ginger (its similar but nicer).

    But really, gin and tonic is the best answer so far, most cocktails are far too sickly for masculine tastes.

    Not even a good quality dark rum? it's quite similar to whisky in many ways.
    Haven't tried whiskey and ginger but I will do. Not a big fan of a G&T but i'll give it another try I suppose.

    Not sure what it is about rum I dont like. Just doesent really suit my tastebuds, and based on past experiences, it doesent like me either.

    Straight vodka over ice.

    And someone mentioned a white russian, but vodka, tia maria and milk can be used instead of vodka, kahlua and cream.
    Vod on the rocks is lovely

    Not sure about having cream and milk in drinks. It'll be different though so i'll give it a try.

    Try an Old Fashioned or Whiskey Sour.
    Will try both.

    If you're a beginner to cocktails and want something totally inoffensive that'll taste like dessert, go with a Mississipi Mud Pie or Bushwhacker.
    The bushwhacker looking at the recipe looks quite complicated lol.

    Talked to a friend who also recommended me a Negroni?

    1 1/2 oz of vermouth
    1 1/2 oz of campari
    1 1/2 oz of gin
    Orange slice to finish.

    Sounds pretty lethal.

    Tried Blue Curacao?

    Made from bitter oranges, among other flavours. Tastes fruity, like oranges oddly enough :P yeah its a bit girly, but what spirit isnt in the right drink?

    Just try it with sprite. Yum!

    Erm, who decided that men can't like sweet drinks? There are plenty of cocktails that aren't sweet at all, though.

    Hence the use of the word "most". It is the case that, physiologically, men tend to have less of a sweet tooth than women though, hence the reason that cocktails (as opposed to simpler mixed drinks like whisky and lemonade) tend to have a feminine image. I don't know any men who drink cocktails personally.

    3 measures of gin (medium dry), 1 measure of vodka, half a measure of kina villet (its not vermouth), served in a chilled martini glass (tall and unsalted), with a large slice of lemon or lime peel

    subtle, sophisticated, deadly

    What you did there... I see it.

    I quite like a mojito though
