Any Umbrella Drink



 
 

Long Island Iced Teas, Long Beach Iced Teas, Tokyo Teas, whatever. Nothing screams manly drink like a paper umbrella on top of it.

Shooters



 
 

Really? Do I have to explain? Are you really ordering Jolly Ranchers and Gummi Bears and keeping a straight face?

A Shirley Temple



 
 

First off, it's a non-alcoholic mixed drink. It's two parts Ginger ale, one part orange juice, and a splash of grenadine, garnished with a maraschino cherry.

Gimlet



 
 

The gimlet is a cocktail made of gin and lime juice. If you want to feel like a 900 year old man here's a 1928 description of the drink: "gin, a spot of lime, and soda". I”m going to guess Snoop Dog wasn't drinking a Gimlet when he was singing Gin and Juice.

Blue Hawaiian



 
 

Unless you are on vacation in Hawaii, why would a manly man order this drink on the main land? The Blue Hawaii is a tropical cocktail made of rum, pineapple juice, blue Curacao, sweet and sour mix, and sometimes vodka as well. Actually sounds pretty good...

White Russian



 
 

A White Russian is a sweet cocktail made with vodka, coffee liqueurs, cream, and it's served with ice in an Old Fashioned glass. The fact you have to plan on old fashioned glass part is pretty lame.

Zima



 
 

Introduced back in 1993, it was marketed not as a beer, but as an alternative to beer. It was an early example of “alcopop”. Zima was a clear, lightly carbonated, alcoholic beverage. It was something you didn't get caught drinking on a night out with the boys.

Any Wine Cooler



 
 

A wine cooler is made from wine and fruit juice. When other men are drinking beer at a party, don't be the one caught drinking a wine cooler.

The Roy Rogers



 
 

A Roy Rogers is a non-alcoholic mixed drink made with cola and grenadine syrup, garnished with a maraschino cherry. It is similar to the Shirley Temple. It's just kind of lame.

Pink Squirrel



 
 

The Pink Squirrel is a frozen cocktail made of 1 oz Creme de Noyaux, 1 oz Creme de Cacao, and 1 oz Half and half. It just has the word pink in the title, and therefore it is unmanly.
