3 Classic Cocktails You Have to Try

Ramos Gin Fizz

Gin is one of the most popular ways to have a classic cocktail and the Ramos Gin Fizz is one of the most famous cocktails to date. This is one of over a dozen fizz family of cocktails. The Ramos Gin Fizz was created in the 1880s by Henrico Ramos in Louisiana. This New Orleans cocktail is a favorite in the south and comes in signature flavors such as orange-blossom water and cream.

Rob Roy

The Rob Roy cocktail was created by a bartender at The Waldorf Hotel in the Big Apple, New York City. Rob Roy was an opera, whose opening night was drawing a lot of attention on Broadway. By using a base of Scotch whiskey, it can be made dry, perfect, or sweet depending on your preferences.

Hemingway Daiquiri

The daiquiri was named after writer Ernest Hemingway, something many drinkers don’t realize. Papa Doble is the original name of the daiquiri and because of Hemingway’s love of the drink while in Havana, Cuba, the Hemingway Daiquiri came to life. This drink is strong, lightly sweet and not frozen at all at its best.
