Modern nightlife is varied and intense, and most of it is spent at pubs, bars and discotheques. If you are a newbie to the club scene, you may be confused and unfamiliar with what to order at the bar. What’s a martini, Negroni, and a Cosmopolitan? Let us guide you on what a beginner should know about popular drinks.
One of the most iconic drinks has got to be the dry martini. Consisting of gin and vermouth, the drink is a perfect balance between light and strong. You might have heard James Bond ordering it “shaken, not stirred”. Sorry James, but you should most definitely get a stirred one. A shaken dry martini has a different balance – it’s more of a watered down shot of alcohol. As a beginner, you could also try ordering a Manhattan, a mixture of whiskey and vermouth. It’s an American classic that can do no wrong!
