It’s hard to resist the allure of a well-made cocktail. Through the years, a number of cocktails have incorporated themselves into both historical and pop culture, rendering them iconic beverage picks that every individual is highly encouraged to try.

Most cocktails are formed out of four of the seven basic spirits: vodka, tequila, gin, and rum, explains Kat Nantes of Paire Cocktails and Pastries. These are combined with other ingredients to form most of the drinks we know. Aside from these, there are also a number of cocktails that are created using wine, making for weaker drinks that do not scrimp on taste.

Still finding your footing in the drinking scene? Here are five cocktails you should try for your next night out. We’ve also included the recipes so you can duplicate them and experiment to your heart’s content at home. Happy drinking!

Paire Cocktails and Pastries is located at the ground floor of Cocoon Hotel, Sct. Tobias cor. Sct. Rallos streets, Quezon City. Call 579-1554 or email for more information.
