Notes on mixed drinks

Base liquors = Vodka, Tequila, Gin, Rum
Liqueurs & schnapps = Midori (melon liqueurs), Peach schnapps
Friuit mixers = Orange juice, Grapefruit juice, Pineapple juice, Cranberry juice, Sweet and sour, Grenadine

Forumla 1: Base liquor + Fruit mixer

Fill the glass with ice, pour 1 oz base into the glass, and fill the glass to top with the mixer. To keep the concept simple, I am omitting glass type and garnishes used in the drink.
  • Screw Driver: Vodka + Organe juice
  • Tequila Driver: Tequila + Orange juice
  • Vodka-Cranberry (or Cape Cod): Vodka + Cranberry juice
  • Greyhound: Vodka + Grapefruit juice
  • Slow Screw: Sloe Gin (A brand of Gin) + Orange juice
Forumla 2: Base liquor + Fruit mixer + Float

A variation of formula 1 is to put some "float" or "top" on the drink. That means an additional 1/2 oz of liquor or liqueur on the top of the drink.
  • Melon Ball: Vodka + Orange juice + Midori
  • Tequila Sunruse: Tequila + Orange juice + Grenadine
Forumla 3: Liqueur + Fruit mixer

Substitute base liquor with a liqueur. A liqueurs is a mix of sweet flavoring and liquor. This would produce a very sweet or fruity drink.
  • Midori Driver: Midori + Orange juice
  • Fuzzy Navel: Peach Schnapps + Orange juice
Forumla 4: Base liquor + Fruit mixer 1 + Fruit mixer 2

Now we change the 1 fruit mixer into a mix of equal portion of 2 fruit mixers. Other stays the same, base liqor is still 1 oz.
  • Sea Breeze: Vodka + Grapefruit juice + Cranberry juice
  • Madras: Vodka + Orange juice + Cranberry juice
  • Hawaiian Driver: Vodka + Orange juice + Pineapple juice
Forumla 5: Base liquor1 + Base liquor2 + Fruit mixer

Following the trend, we could have 2 different base liqours as well. Each one should be 1/2 oz, so the total amount of liquor in the drink is still 1 oz.
  • Brass Monkey: Vodka + Rum + Orange juice
