Whatever you've been buying illegally up to your 21 birthday? LOL =O)
If want to take it slow try a cold beer but if think you can handle it try some wiskys...
Please, dear God, not a foofy chick drink. Whiskey. Or a Martini. Something that will not s.c.r.e.a.m. "I just turned 21 and don't really know how to drink."
I love a dry Vodka Martini, shaken, not stirred, or the Vesper. Or a Whiskey Old-Fashioned. Or Marguerita, rocks and salted, with an extra shot...sippers :) Hope it helps. Happy Birthday, btw!
From the Web:
The Old-fashioned is a classic whiskey cocktail that has been served since around 1880 at the Pendennis Club in Louisville, Kentucky and is (disputably) the first drink referred to as a cocktail. It is the perfect ideal of what a cocktail should contain: a spirit, a sweet, a bitter, a sour and water.
Typically, the Old-fashioned is made with bourbon, however you can experiment with other types of whiskey for an equally excellent drink. Have a light old-fashioned with Canadian whiskey or one that's more sour with a Tennessee whiskey. Club soda is often used to top off this drink, but this is not a traditional method.
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Total Time: 2 minutes
Yield: 1 Cocktail
1 sugar cube
2-3 dashes Angostura bitters
2 orange slices
3 oz bourbon whiskey
Maraschino cherry for garnish
Place the sugar cube at the bottom of an old-fashioned glass.
Saturate the cube with the bitters.
A Cement Mixer shot. Maybe a captain and coke for a drink. Then maybe another shot of Goldshlauger.
shot and a beer... my best friend tapped my first legal beer so it foamed up... so don't get a bottle
two waters first so that when you have lemon drop it won't kick your butt.
It's your b-day. Let others buy for you.
