You can always ask a girl what she’s drinking. You just don’t want to offer any shots like a B*** Job, Red-Headed Slut or Sex On The Beach. She might get the wrong idea. Flavored vodka is pretty popular these days. All girls like Bubble Gum Vodka and anything with cotton candy. A good drink is a Pink Lemon Drop. It’s very sweet and delicious. Cotton Candy Martinis are also a sure hit. Girls like anything sweet.

Pink Lemon Drop

2 oz Cotton Candy Liqueur
1 oz Silver Rum
1⁄2 oz lemon juice
1 oz simple syrup

Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled shot or martini glass rimmed with sugar. To garnish, wet the rim of the glass with lime juice and roll in granulated sugar. Place a lemon wheel on the rim of the glass.

Cotton Candy Martini

2 oz raspberry-flavored vodka
1 oz Chambord (raspberry liqueur)
splash of grenadine

Chill martini glass and moisten the rim. Spread sugar onto a plate and invert the glass onto it to get an evenly sugared rim. Place ice in cocktail shaker and pour the vodka and the Chambord.
