On my 21st birthday, I went to a bar with one of my best friends (who is also a dude.) It was a special occasion and I was wearing my mother's leather jacket, which she gave to me, and skin-tight punk rock jeans. This was a Russian neighborhood and a Russian bar and needless to say I stood out like a sore thumb. As the night progressed, my drink orders went more and more to the girly-drink side. I started with a lychee infused vodka, then a kamikaze, then a cosmo, and it sort of got blurry at that point. Also, for two dudes, we were/are generally a lot more grope-y at one another than one would generally assume two straight dudes would be (we're European, you see.)

The highlight of the evening was the bar's flower seller awkwardly standing behind us because she clearly had no idea which one of us she was supposed to convince to buy the other a rose.

I will admit it, I used to drink nothing but "girl drinks" so much so I used to bring my own Apple Pucker to the bar to make appletinis. Along the way I got lazy but my favorite drinks, mixed to taste:

1 part goldschlager,1 part amaretto shaken over ice.
1 part stoli vanil, 1 part baileys, 1 part Godiva chocolate liqueur shaken over ice.
1 part Apple Pucker, 4 parts stoli limon shaken over ice.
1 part sprite, 1 part Citron, splash of grenadine. This must be served with a cherry in a cordial glass.
My all time favorie, the Red Devil:
1 part vodka,1 part peach schnapps,1 part SoCo,1 part sloe gin,1 part triple sec,1 part orange juice, splash of grenadine, shaken over ice. Ideally you make enough to fill a pint glass, like a Long island.

Extra bonus drink, New Yorker: 2 parts Any whiskey,1 part lemon juice, splash of grenadine.

Never drank many cosmos but I've had plenty of bellinis and kirs.

I may have mentioned this before here, but the only time I got away with serving, and getting someone to pay for, a cement mixer, was when two guys came into my bar. First ordered a vodka/cran and the second layed into him immediately for ordering a 'girly' drink. I convinced him to get a manlier cement mixer and as he was feeling the effects of it I told him to f off and never make fun of a simple drink like vodka cran. Cran drinker paid and tipped me well.

I was at a polish vodka (the type that actually has a flavour) tasting last night. We followed up with tasting some Irish Poitin (a little bit like overproof white whiskey). It was basically an evening of drinking neat, clear, strongly flavoured spirits.

I fucking love girly drinks. If it tastes overwhelmingly of alcohol, then I will not drink it!

As a matter of fact, I'm drinking Red Stag with cola and maraschino cherries right now.

Some people drink to socialize, I, however, drink to help me sleep. Somebody told me I was taking too much NyQuil a while back, so I switched to sweet, alcoholic beverages. Was this change for the better? I don't know. Who gives a shit? It tastes better than green liquid black licorice! Incidentally, somebody gave me a straight shot of "Green Fairy", which is apparently absinthe, and it was awful. It burnt. It tasted like NyQuil, but it burned for like, five minutes. Apparently, you're supposed to dilute it or something, but that guy was kind of an asshole, and I guess wanted to see me yell "MOTHERFUCKER" for three minutes straight.

Cake vodka was the most hideous thing I've ever tasted, however.
Vanilla vodka and diet orange soda. It tastes like a Creamsicle.
Wait, what? Holy shit. I love Creamsicles! I assume this can be done with regular orange soda. Pretty soon, I'll have my vanilla vodka and my orange crush.

I never really got over the childhood phase where alcohol tastes "yucky". Drinks have to be sweet or I don't drink them - I hate dry wine, I have hard cider instead of beer, and yep, I drink girl drinks. But not the trendy cosmos or 'tinis - I prefer daquiris or cranberry and vodka. (And speaking of daquiris - Ernest Hemmingway apparently favored them, so is that really a girl drink?)

My worst drink was: Tonic, Gin and Tang. Don't ever try that.

This is more juvenile than girly, but I spent my 21st birthday drinking ouzo and root beer, which tastes like root beer candy and paired very well with the copious weed we were smoking. It was also a step up from my 18th birthday when I got hammered on Black Haus and Dr. Pepper and then drunk dialed a girl I had a crush on, leaving what I'm sure was an impassioned message on her parents' answering machine.

Punch of Doom:

Vodka, lots
Peach schnapps, lots
grape juice
Red Hawaiian Punch,

Mix, serve cold, get lots of people girl drink drunk, fast, Most often found at a KoL meet that Suzika is at.

PJ Juice

Similar to PoD, but PoD was made specifically because PJ Juice is dangerous.

Everclear (not so much.
sliced up fruit: oranges, lemons, maraschino cherries, limes.
Grape Juice
Red Hawaiian Punch
Sprite, a bit for the bubbles.

Drink, and you most scream "Purple Jesus, Purple Jesus!" while doing so. Not as girly as PoD as Everclear is grain alcohol.

And, my favorite, stickiest, sweetest, girly drink:

Hawaiian Punch

1 oz vodka
1.5 oz Amaretto
splash of grenadine
fill glass with OJ, shake.

So sticky, so sweet, so friggin' yummy. It was the second "legal" drink I ever had, the first was a Lemon Drop (slam shot of vodka, suck on lemon slice that is covered in sugar.)

I am a girl drink drunk when I drink and I work toward making everyone around me drunk as well. that is the reason there is the PoD and that I have carried on the family tradition of PJ juice (not joking, my Mom's family is how I first had PJ juice.)

I became notorious in some circles for bringing The Blue Drink to a few parties.

Another friend was a big fan of his own creation, "Pink Drink", which may also be a "Caribbean sunrise". The recipe for that was something like:
2-3 shots rum or vodka
half shot grenadine
half shot Rose's lime juice
Combine in a purloined ~12oz cup from the dining hall.
Fill the rest of the way with orange juice.
Consume in moderation.

The best girly drink I invented in my bartending days was this:

-1 oz sour apple
-1/2 oz blue curacao
-1/2 oz banana liqueur
-shake briefly on ice and strain into a tall glass of ice
-top with bar lemon (less common than bar lime, but tastier) and a splash of 7up

Super deelish, and a lovely shade of green. Looks very festive for the holidays too.

As a catering bartender who usually has a thorough but basic bar set-up & doesn't always have access to foofy, multicolored ingredients, this is my go-to girly drink.

Something Fruity

-2 oz rum (dark preferred)
-.5 oz triple sec
-.5 oz lime juice
-splash of cranberry
-splash of orange

Shake over ice until frothy, strain into a wine glass.
Garnish with lemon slice, lime wedge, and a cherry (because that + olives is what I got)

I had so many indecisive people at weddings and parties get to the head of a long line and then just fucking stand there saying "Mmm, I dunno. I want something fruity..." So I just came up with a drink by that name so I could begin cranking out a drink.

Oh man, my partner discovered the best goddamn girly drink I have ever tasted a couple of nights ago. The only drawbacks are that it requires some fairly obscure liquors and also one of the bartenders that we ordered it from just told us that it was all wrong and came back with a "fixed" version that wasn't nearly as good (the layering is key). It is goddamn delicious though, I will tell you that much -- sweet but not cloying, floral in character, complex, strong, very easy to drink. It's lovely.

Stormy Morning: In a collins glass, over ice, pour in créme de violette. Layer in St. Germain and lime juice. Top with Champagne. Garnish with lime wedge. Stir gently.
