Choosing the Perfect Cocktail Every Time!

When you head out to a new restaurant, and you've never tried anything on their drink menu, it can be easy to get lost in fun names and ingredients. Thankfully, there are a few easy ways to decide if you'll like something without having to know a TON about alcohol. Keep these quick easy tips in mind when you come out to the best bar at the Lake of the Ozarks, and you'll find YOUR perfect cocktail every time *wink*.

Do you like strong drinks?

You'll probably enjoy something that is heavy on alcohol and bitter liqueurs yet light on the fruit. Keep these in mind:

Martini - generally made with gin and vermouth, topped with an olive, and should probably be stirred.

Old Fashioned - whiskey, mixed with bitters, and a little sugar on the rim with a slice of orange.

Negroni - Gin, vermouth, campari, and an orange peel.

Do you want something refreshing?

Choose something that is citrusy, probably over ice, with a touch of sugar to reduce the bite.

Margherita - Triple sec, tequila, and lime or lemon juice, served with salt or sugar on the rim.

Moscow Mule - Ginger beer, vodka, and lime juice.

Long Island Iced Tea - Tequila, gin, vodka, rum, triple sec, topped with cola.

Do you have a sweet tooth?

If you order a sweet drink, you'll probably get something that contains a type of syrup or fruit juice and doesn't contain the bitter liqueurs.

Strawberry Daquiri - white rum, syrup, lime juic, and strawberry puree.

Tequila Sunrise: Tequila, orange juice, grenadine.

Hurricane - Rum, lemon juice, passion fruit syrup.
