    ***Official birthday drink thread for Oct. 14***

    (Always wanted to start an official thread.)

    Looking for ideas for a birthday drink. NOT the 21-shot specials that some of you young-uns seem to adore, but something unique and memorable for someone a bit older.

    What makes your suggestion great? Color? Taste? Presentation? Ingredients? Have you tried what you're suggesting or just think it's cool?

    Note: this should not replace the Friday beer thread. Thanks in advance for your insightful comments.

    This may or may not be a "chick" drink, but I have always been fond of grasshoppers. Always enjoyed the mint flavor ice cream taste.

    Re: ***Official birthday drink thread for Oct. 14***

    today is my best man's birthday too- he was always fond of Manhattans, so that is the first thing that comes to mind, but I am not a fan of bourbon- I like a less smoky tasting scotch.

    We just got a vitamix blender from costco and promptly went though two doubles of JC making margaritas, so that is my current drink.

    White Russians, and gin and tonics are also favorites of mine. Good luck, have fun, and happy birthday!

    Oy... Why not just go all in and add a Long Island Iced Tea on top of that?

    Moscow Mule

    Vodka, ginger beer (different that ginger ale), and lime. Must be served in a copper mug. Head to Wallaby's and see if they still serve them in the copper mug.
