Cognac, orange juice, and Grand Marnier—the Olympic Cocktail, named for the Titanic's sister ship.
Brandy, curacao, lemon, and bitters: the Brandy Crusta is the prototype of the modern sour, and a forerunner of the Sidecar. More historic marker than living cocktail, it's a drink that's important to know if you take your cocktails seriously. And it tastes good. Why did it disappear?
The “daisy” is a sour made with triple sec or orange curaçao instead of straight sugar. The Margarita is one of the most famous examples: white tequila, lime juice, Cointeau and sugar.
The Cosmopolitan Cocktail: citrus vodka, cranberry juice, fresh lime juice and Cointreau.
The Countrypolitan Cocktail: bourbon, lime juice, demarara syrup, Grand Marnier and Pama. A whiskey-based alternative to the Cosmopolitan.
The Bourbon Derby: Manhattan-style, with bourbon, Bénédictine, and bitters, or New Orleans sour-style, with bourbon, sweet vermouth, curaçao and lime juice.
