Know Your Classics: A Guide to Classic Cocktails

Whether you like your cocktails bright and sweet or clear and strong, the world of libations is expansive and exhilarating. All you need to get started is your choice of base liquor and we’ve put together a guide on how to find the perfect libation.



The vodka cocktail that is most popular is the Cosmopolitan. Served in a dainty martini glass, this cocktail can be seen being thrown back by sharply dressed guests. With vodka, triple sec, cranberry juice and a squeeze of lime, this libation goes down easy and is sure to kick off a fun night.


Gin drinkers are straight shooters, like the most popular gin combination, gin and tonic. Grab your favorite bottle of gin, twist off the tonic cap, squeeze in some lime and enjoy, but don’t forget to look cool doing it.



At Kapow, we like to think that rum is best enjoyed in a mojito with plenty of fresh lime and mint. White rum, soda and a healthy serving of fresh lime and mint make up the perfect and refreshing mojito.


An Old-Fashioned is a classic cocktail and one of the oldest, or might we say old-fashioned, in the books. An Old-Fashioned is crafted by muddling sugar with bitters, adding in your favorite whiskey and garnishing it with a twist of citrus rind.



It doesn’t have to be Cinco de Mayo or National Tequila day to throw back a vibrant marg. Pull your favorite tequila down from the shelf, salt the rim of your trendiest cactus glass and make sure you have plenty of fresh lime.
