Variety is the spice of life. Instead of ordering a Manhattan, again, try something new. We have discovered the best cocktails you´ve never heard of but need to try.

Here are relatively unknown drinks that every cocktail enthusiast should try at least once in his life:

La Paloma
You need to get this drink. The Paloma is the most popular tequila based cocktail in Mexico (paloma is Spanish for “dove“). A classic La Paloma has only four ingredients: tequila, lime juice, grapefruit soda and a pinch of salt. That’s it. Mix everything together in a tall glass, add some ice and stir it all together. Enjoy!

The Income Tax
The Income Tax Cocktail is a Bronx cocktail with one additional ingredient: bitters. For this cocktail you will need some gin, dry vermouth, sweet vermouth, orange juice and bitters. Everything is shaken and strained into a cocktail glass.

Pink Lady
The Pink Lady is a classic gin-based cocktail. Its pink color is due to adding grenadine. On first sight you might expect it to be sweet, but it’s actually drier than most cocktails. The classic recipe just uses gin, grenadine, cream and an egg whites.

Vieux Carre
The Vieux Carre (its name literally means “old square”) is an iconic New Orleans cocktail. This cocktail is a short, slow sipper that begins with equal parts of rye whiskey, Cognac, and sweet vermouth. Two bitters are used and there is a hint of a classic herbal liqueur.
