    + 1 for Negronis! You've got to love a drink that was invented by replacing soda with gin!

    Variations on a theme, fellow brothers of the juniper berry! It's all good.

    For those that don't drink a lot of cocktails, gin and tonic is hard to beat. If they want sweet, rum and coke. Or maybe long island ice tea.

    A jigger of Hendricks Gin, just shy a jigger of St. Germain, half of a lime squeezed. Shake, pour and consume.

    Personally I like bourbon and gingerale. But for non-drinkers, a Sloe Gin Fizz or Fuzzy Navel can be good ones.

    I've been substituting a local citrus, shiquasa, for the lime. Verrry tasty. Gotta give S.t Germaim a try.

    Besides rum and coke, and gin and tonic. I'd go with a mudslide (2 parts Kahlua, 2 parts Irish Cream, 1 part milk). To give it a seasonal flare, you can always substitute those flavored creamers they use for coffee to change things up. Right now I'd make it with pumpkin spice. Either serve on the rocks, or blend to make an alcoholic smoothy.

    I do love St. Germaine. I use it on a regular basis for drinks.

    I will try out some of these recipes, thanks all!
