5 Classic Cocktails Every Man Should Know

The Art of Manliness has a wonderful post on 5 classic cocktails that all men should be familiar with and how to mix them for maximum effect.

There’s been a trend lately to get back to the old way of doing things, especially when it comes to things we ingest. This trend has also entered the world of libations. Drink menus around the country are starting to have more of the old classics included on them. Many mixologists are using these cocktails as starting points for newer versions that take advantage of the plethora of products out there today. Recipe books from classic bars such as the Old Waldorf-Astoria, The Savoy, and the Stork Club are available in reprint editions for the new generation to use. And who can forget Old Mr. Boston? They’ve been printings those books since 1935 and still do to this day.

But you don’t need a recipe book to get started mixing up some of the classic cocktails men have been drinking for decades (and in some cases, more than a century). Here’s how to create the 5 classic cocktails every man should know.

Seriously, Girls? There is no need to be offended by this. The article links to the Art of Manliness website, that's why it says "man." The vast majority of men I know love to feel stronger and bolder and classic. The way we feel when we put on a fine tailored suit, look out at the world, and feel successful. A site like art of manliness is a perfect little retreat a refresher for men. There's no need to try and take that happiness away because you feel offended. That would just lead to further emasculation, which would only strengthen the cycle already created.

And to Jeff: just chill out, man. We get it, you don't drink and that makes you better than us. I've heard it a million times and it's never changed my opinion. Oh and btw, many studies have found that people who drink alcohol in moderate amounts have longer lifespans. Sorry, dude. look it up.

Oh come ON neatorama. Just as Lauren mentioned, women also happen to like drinks. Enough with all the "manliness" BS, you have loads of female visitors too, and alcohol is just alcohol. The title really should have been "cocktails Everyone Should Know". Alcohol and mixing drinks isn't a gender specific thing (no matter what the "art of manliness" says) or only for men, k?

Tsk tsk. Back to the 21st century people.

What about "five cocktails everyone should know". Because you might have noticed, women drink too. And are capable of mixing drinks! Shocking. Neatorama is really sucking with this archaic gender shit.
