+ 1 for Negronis! You've got to love a drink that was invented by replacing soda with gin!
There are many people who claim to be good cooks; just as there are many people who, after having repainted the garden gate take themselves to be painters.
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.

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!
