Welcome to part 2 of our Top 10 Manliest Drinks. If you haven't seen part 1 yet, read this first.
5. The Hurl Hurl
Maybe, just maybe, this drink is tolerable, what with all the flavored liquors, but don't bank on it. With a name like the Hurl Hurl, that should serve as a warning to any drinker. But, of course, when it comes to true tests of drinking manliness, a name like "Hurl Hurl" sounds more like "You're a pussy if you don't drink this."
1 part Amaretto
1 part Cranberry Juice
1 part Creme de Banane
1 part Malibu Rum
1 part Melon Liqueur
1 part Peach Schnapps
1 part Raspberry Liqueur
1 part Southern Comfort
1 part Triple Sec
How to Make It:
Add a splash of all the ingredients into a shaker cup filled with ice. Shake until very cold. Serve as a shot or in a cocktail glass.
4. The Four Horsemen
This requires both speed and some coherence, making this a drink and drinking game that shouldn't be performed late in your night.
1 shot Captain Morgan
1 shot Jack Daniels
1 shot Jim Beam
1 shot Jose Cuervo
How to Make It: Spread the shots out in front of you, take the first one, slam it, then the next and so on down the line. No chaser, no pause. When all four are down, guess which one was which.
3. Long Island Iced Tea
Similar to the Adios Motherf***er but with a classier name, the Long Island Iced Tea boasts a 28% alcohol concentration, which means the drink will certainly get you drunk as much as it will allow you to keep your dignity when someone asks what you're drinking. After all, if approached by a woman and she asks you what you're drinking, which would you rather say: Long Island Iced Tea, or an Adios Motherf***er?
3 parts Vodka
3 parts Tequila
3 parts White Rum
3 parts Triple Sec
3 parts Gin
5 parts Lemon juice
6 parts Gomme Syrup
Dash of Cola
How to Make It: Mix ingredients in glass over ice, stir, garnish and serve in a Highball glass.
2. The Aunt Roberta
Apparently, the story behind the Aunt Roberta is this: It was invented in the 1800s by a mulatto prostitute who was running a bootleg drinks shack. With eight and a half shots in this cocktail, make sure you have your affairs in order before you drink it.
3 shots vodka
2 shots absinthe
1 shot brandy
1.5 shots gin
1 shot of blackberry liqueur
How to Make It: Mix all together in a glass, drink, lament over the memory loss that will incur.
Lets be honest: no matter what it boils down to, the Martini will simply be one of the classiest and one of the manliest drinks around. In short, the Martini asserts yourself as one who can down an pure-alcohol cocktail as well as keeping it classy. Of course, if need be, you can substitute normal vodka or gin for Everclear or Moonshine, if you're looking for the most potent cocktail around--you'd end up drinking a drink that's about 90% alcohol.
Vodka/Gin (or Everclear or Moonshine)
How to Make It: Utilizing your favorite ratio of gin/vodka to vermouth, mix all together with ice, serve in martini glass with an olive.
Of course, the manliest thing to do would to take this top 10 and drink all of them in one night... but we at Metrowize aren't proponents for losing our reader base, so at most pick one of these drinks wisely and make a night out of it. But if these drinks seem a little too much to handle, don't fear--be sure to check out our 10 Best Drinks You've Never Ordered, which we promise will be far more kind to your stomach than these "cocktails."
