Mixed Alcoholic Drinks You Want to Try Next Time!

In an effort to not promote alcoholism nor unhealthy drinking habits, one can at least acknowledge that trying different alcohol brands and mixes adds a little spice to any celebration. Whether you mix a non-alcoholic beverage directly with an alcoholic beverage or use a non-alcoholic beverage as a chaser, try these drink combinations, and ingredients, and see if they could be your next “go-to.”

  • Any tequila with a Squirt soda
    • This is called a “Paloma”
    • In a “Catarito,” you have both tequila and Squirt soda, but with orange juice, chamoy sauce and tajin on the rim, and a bit of tajin inside the drink.
  • Hennessy and Coke soda
  • Bacardi and Coke soda
  • Hennessy and cranberry juice
  • Grey Goose and cranberry juice
  • Malibu Rum and pineapple juice
  • Malibu Rum and cranberry juice
  • Remy Martin VSOP and pineapple juice
  • Hennessy and fruit punch
  • Hennessy, Hypnotiq, and any juice
  • Mountain Dew soda, any juice, and light Bacardi
  • Any vodka, cranberry juice, Sprite soda, and any juice
    • This is considered a “Jolly Rancher”
  • Buchanan with cranberry juice and/or pineapple juice
  • Tamarindo Smirnoff with Horchata
  • Any vodka with any flavored Mio
  • D’usse with Purple Crush Monaco

To better help you process the bitter taste, try these next tips!

  • Inhale before you take a shot, and exhale after you swallow
  • sprinkle some cinnamon powder onto a slice of orange and take a bite after taking a shot
  • take a shot and then eat a couple of spicy peanuts

Personally, as a Chicanx, Buchanan mixed with cranberry juice and pineapple juice is my go-to. It’s what you will always find at Mexican parties and it was actually my first legal drink. When I’m around my friends though, it’s a fifth of Hennessy and Coke for the win. Once you try these mixed drinks and have a chosen one, it’s only a matter of time before your friends crown you Queen or King of Malibu, Grey Goose, Remy, or a self-proclaimed Henny Queen as myself.
