Amaretto Sours are a wonderful first-time drink for the ladies since it’s so easy on the taste buds. Just be careful drinking them because sweet mixed drinks can sometimes leave you with quite the headache if you down too many. Ingredients: amaretto liqueur, sweet and sour mix garnished with a cherry

A Cape Cod is just a fancy way of asking for vodka with cranberry juice. With this drink, not only do you get alcohol to get you tipsy, but cranberry juice is also good for kidney health, which you’ll need considering your burgeoning alcohol problem. Ingredients: vodka and cranberry juice with lime

‘GoldenEye’ was the name of a James Bond movie that was one of the better ones in the Pierce Brosnan era. Goldeneye is also the name of a delicious drink made with rum that those new to alcohol should consider ordering from the bar. Ingredients: rum and pineapple juice

7. Margarita

A Margarita is a great drink for first-timers, and if made right, goes down rather smoothly. Order it on the rocks with a salted rim as opposed to frozen; you’ll get a better bang for your buck, and it’ll taste much better than a frozen margarita dispensed from a machine like a Slurpee. Ingredients: tequila, triple sec and lime with salted rim

6. Appletini

Another beverage for rookies in the drinking game is the famed Appletini. This drink is basically a martini with a sour apple flavor, which is far easier to down for first-time drinkers than a regular martini. You have to be careful, though, these drinks still pack the punch of a regular martini. Ingredients: vodka, apple liqueur or apple brandy garnished with a cherry

5. French Connection

The French Connection is a great drink for guys new to alcoholic beverages because it comes in a cool looking glass that’ll make you seem debonair. The drink is pretty smooth going down, too. Ingredients: cognac and amaretto

Tequila Sunrise isn’t what happens when you get drunk off Patron shots, and then wake up on an abandoned road hungover to the sun rising (don’t ask). A tequila sunrise is a tasty alcoholic beverage made with tequila that goes down easily, which is not always the case with tequila made beverages. Ingredients: tequila, orange juice and grenadine

3. White Russian

White Russians are a very smooth drink, and taste somewhat like a milkshake. This drink was cool enough for the Dude in ‘The Big Lebowski,’ so it should score you some cool points with friends, too. Ingredients: vodka, coffee liqueur and cream or milk
