The 11 Manliest Cocktails In The World

You wouldn’t be caught dead drinking a cosmo, but all your friends will be drinking these at your funeral.
irish car bomb cocktail
11. Irish Car Bomb
Why is it manly?: What’s manlier than going mano-a-beero with a pint of the world’s thickest stout mixed with a shot of whiskey? Knowing that if you don’t chug it fast enough, you’ll be downing chunks of curdled Bailey’s cream.
3/4 pint Guinness stout
1/2 shot Bailey’s Irish cream
1/2 shot Jameson Irish whiskey
kentucky tea cocktail
10. Kentucky Tea
Why is it manly:? You can get shot in the face by an Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms federal agent just for making this cocktail.
1 mason jar halfway full of moonshine
Fill the jar with branch water 
rusty nail cocktail
9. Rusty Nail
Why is it manly?: I can’t put my finger on exactly why, but there’s something oddly macho about asking your girlfriend if she would like to sip on your Rusty Nail. Recipe:
¾ oz. scotch
¼ oz. Drambuie

snake bite cocktail
8. Snake Bite
Why is it manly?: Anytime a drink is compared to a snake sinking its fangs into you and depositing venom in your bloodstream, chances are, it’s probably pretty stiff. Basically it’s straight up Yukon Jack, which has been known to make balls hairy. The only reason there’s a dash of lime juice is so you won’t get scurvy.
2 oz Yukon Jack liqueur
1 dash Lime juice
7. Jagerade
Why is it manly?: To be honest, I don’t know if this is manly or just gross. Either way, a man can never get enough electrolytes.
Recipe: 8 oz chilled Gatorade energy drink
4 oz Jagermeister herbal liqueur 
gine and juice cocktail
6. Gin and Juice
Why is it manly?: Snoop Dogg likes to drink this when there are bitches in his living room gettin’ it on until six o’clock in the morning, so that has to be worth something. Gin and juice was also the morning cocktail of soldiers and officers in WWII. That’s right, this is what you drank right before you killed a bunch of Nazis. You can’t say that about Malibu and pineapple.
Recipe: 2 1/2 ounces Gin.
1 oz. orange juice.
Equal parts mind on your money and money on your mind
nuclear waste keith richards
5. Nuclear Waste
Why is it manly?: This is the only thing Keith Richards drinks now. According to the man himself, ""Whiskey wasn’t agreeing with me anymore. The old body couldn’t take it. Brandy is a killer, and wine is best with food, so somehow I settled on this. Plenty of ice. Lovely." If it’s good enough for Mr. Richards, it’s good enough for this list.
2 oz. premium vodka
1 oz. Sunkist or any orange soda Plenty of ice
tequila sunrise cocktail
4. Tequila Sunrise
Why is it manly?:First off, it’s a breakfast cocktail. And secondly, "2 measures tequila" is short for, "as much tequila as your glass will hold." It may look a little fruity but it’s about as tropical as a back alley in Tijuana.
2 measures Tequila Orange juice
2 dashes Grenadine
original sazarac cocktail
3. The Original Sazerac
What makes it manly?: This cocktail takes the classic New Orleans recipe and adds—what else—a nice, healthy addition of Absinthe. Because if huffing rye whiskey doesn’t make you a man, mixing it with mythical psychadelic liquor that tastes like cough syrup will make sure everyone knows you have a penis.
1 tsp Sugar
1-1/2 oz Rye whiskey
1 Dash Herbsaint, Pernod or Absinthe (to coat the glass)
2 dashes Peychaud bitters
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 Lemon peel twist
martini cocktail
2. Martini
Why is it manly?: Well, it’s pretty much straight alcohol, with just enough vermouth to remind you that you’re not drinking disinfectant. Plus, James Bond drinks it, and he bangs lots of chicks and beats the crap out of dudes with names that describe a hideous disfigurement they have that also provides them with some sort of physical superiority.
2 1/2 oz Gin
1 1/2 tsp Dry Vermouth
1 Olive
manhattan cocktail
1. Manhattan:
Why is it manly: You may say "it’s got a cherry, nothing with a cherry is manly." Well, nibble on this: It’s notorious for being the favorite drink of the Italian Mafia, who are notorious for killing people. I’m not saying killing somebody makes you a man, but it’s probably not the best idea to call someone who just threw someone off a bridge a "cherry drinking pansy."
*3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth
2 1/2 oz Rye whiskey dash Angostura bitters
1 Maraschino cherry

    mobsters are not manly. Sure, they kill people and all, but they wear queer ass clothes and cheesy jewelry

  2. bones says:

    It’s only manly to people who gell their hair into a mohawk, with little bleached ends at the tips. They would be wearing a “retro” smoking jacket and jeans. Sipping their cocktails slow enough so they would be able to Guaqmire all the drunk chicks.

  3. Anonymous says:

    I usually just drink Jack straight but since I got a gift of absinthe recently I might try that number 7

  4. german says:

    where is the white russian . the dude drinks it man come on

  5. Daweer says:

    Snake bite, here in the UK its half cider half beer with a shot of grenadine you pansies.

  6. big nose joe says:

    At first I thought the list was lame. But then I realised that it’s coctails and didn’t really care. Real men drink thier alchohol straight up and fast. The essence of a true power drinker.

  7. dEv says:

    Irish Truck Bomb–a buddy of mine was in NYC, on a pub crawl. He was challenged to finish a Truck Bomb, which is the same as a car bomb, but bigger:

    -1/2 pitcher of Guiness
    -1/2 highball of Jameson
    -1/2 highball of Baileys

    Three Wisemen:

    -1/3 Johnny Walker (red or black)
    -1/3 Jim Beam
    -1/3 Jack Daniels

    rocks or neat (I’d only suggest neat if you’re trying to make your 21 yr. old friend puke)

  8. tallboy7 says:

    Cheers on the Nuclear Waste. Look at his face… fantastic drinkin’ face.

    Manhattan is also good bc it’s got the alkyhol of the martini, with a cherry to ensnare a laydee. That’s how i do it, BITCHES.

  9. BIG DICK says:

    I used to drink Jack Daniels and nothing else. Then I started having a hard time getting out of bed everyday. I didn’t think much of it until my life started becoming much more difficult than it used to be. I couldn’t understand what was going on. Then I had a bright idea and switched to Johnny Walker Black. I thought that if I switched I’d start feeling better. I did for a while, but I think that was just the placebo thing-a-ma-jig. I got to a point where I really didn’t care about much. A friend of my told me about AA. I know, I know. Sounds like a cop-out. But if you think drinking makes you a man, see how much stuff you’ve got- walk into an AA meeting and tell everyone in the room that you’re an Alkie! That takes real guts. I never looked back. I put my life back together and, you wouldn’t believe it- No more hangovers- PRICELESS!

  10. ShotTrain says:

    How about the 4 Horsemen went hunting……Jim, Jack, Jose, Captain with a dash of Wild Turkey. Even when you’re fucked up, it’s hard to keep this one down.

  11. clitwizard says:

    omg this list turned out good, then ended with some poon drinks. this has to be a joke right?????? i dont care if your martini glass is filled with wild turkey, and coke. if your dude and your holding a martini glass thats universal sign language for i like to Hold to COCK.

    The manlinest drink around is a Bear Fight, without questions.

    Irish Car Bomb immediately followed by a Jagar Bomb. Grizzley Bear v. Panda.

    Whoever wins. You lose.

  17. Tyler Durden says:

    Try this one, its called a mad apache in a double shot glass
    1oz 151 & 1oz hot damn (100 proof)

  18. mark says:


  19. Kit says:

    Still I think nothing hits harder than what my friend and I call a gorilla fart. Usually only drunk at the end of the night to make sure that you get wasted at last call.

    1 oz. diesel (or everclear… anything 190+)
    1 oz. Wild Turkey

    And for the guys who want to chase that with something a little nicer the Pigeon fart

    1 oz. 151
    1 oz bailey’s

    one after the other… guaranty’s a good time

  20. Jimmy Hoffa says:

    There’s a difference between a Snake Bite (above mentioned cocktail) and a Snakebite (the 1/2 pint lager, 1/2 pint cider popular with the Brits). Personally, I like em both.

  21. joeyjoejo says:

    Im gonna start this rant by saying I’m a bartender, The amount of alcohol in the drink or the proof of it doesn’t make you a man. People who order Adios M’F'ers and tokyo teas and kryptonites or straight shots of 151 are idiots. Anytime the word fart, piss, pussy or anything that sounds like a frat guy made it up while doing whip its or huffing paint out of a paper bag is not manly, it’s borderline retarded. A simple beer and a shot will do. I’m not 100% if a martini/manhattan are manly drinks but they are classics. Also, for crying out loud if you are a man do not order a lemon drop, chocolate cake, wet pussy, screaming orgasm or nuts and berries. I don’t care how delicious it might be. If you come into my bar and ask for that I will say one of two things, Hand over your man membership or did you make sure to wipe your flowery vagina after you got done peeing while sitting down. And yes snakebites are a mixed drink and a mixture of a lager and a cider.

  22. Peter says:


  23. Jason says:

    This list is for drinks and not shots.

    I drink manhattan’s and gin martini’s almost exclusively, girl’s are always wondering what I’m drinking and then are sorry they asked when I give them a taste. I think that’s the best manly test there is.

  24. I love Ass says:

    I love this list. I get at least 4 of those drinks off the list when i frequent Rage in West Hollywood. But if your drinkin 151 straight, that must make you a man. next time ill say hi ;)


  25. Premo says:

    I ‘m a bartender and I hate all these trendy drinks with “cool” names. When people tell me to make them something good I them a shot of Crown, quickly swipe the money and move to the next person. It’s good enough for me enjoy.

    haha very true and rasputin is a crazy drink

  30. Rowsdower says:

    Ah… Vodka. A complete waste of alcohol (next to beer and wine). And if you need to chill anything to choke it down, you most certainly do not have testicles.

  31. TG says:

    Findlandia is vodka, last time I checked. Vodka is 60 percent ethanol, so you could be drinking petroleum and not know the difference. Stay in school genius, maybe you’ll replace some of the brain cells you’ve lost.

  32. Nate says:

    Scotch and Bourbon are whiskeys. I agree with you in principle – the classic manly drink is bourbon on the rocks before you make your first million, and scotch on the rocks afterwards. But saying that someone should drink either bourbon, scotch, or whiskey is like saying someone should drive either a BMW, a Mercedez, or a car.

  33. TG says:

    Good God, woman. There’s nothing more irritating than a presumptuous bitch that thinks she’s got 9/10 of anything right. I doubt any man in a club drinking a Jack and Coke needs to learn how to drink whiskey.

  34. Anonymous says:

    AT, a real man needs all of your above drinks mentioned to even contemplate going home with you.

  35. TG says:

    Are you sure you’re not gay? I drink most of my whiskey neat… have been a whiskey drinker for 20 years. So I can safely say my palate for the drink is connosuier. JD is a mid-priced whiskey, but it is an excellent whiskey for it’s price point. This is something that fails to register with you because you’re exactly the type of person to follow some trend rather than your palate.

    Again, another presumptuous jerkoff thinking he/she knows more about alcohol than the next guy. Did it ever occur to you someone drinking a Jack and Coke might like the taste of it?

  36. Matt says:

    of course it takes a woman to tell a man how to act. AT, you sound like a real bore. i feel sorry for your friends. you know what makes a real man, doing what he wants and not caring about anyone else. and p.s…imported beer sucks.

  37. TG says:

    I see you’re a pawn to marketing. Crown Royal is the most disgusting, synthetic-tasting whiskey ever made. No distiller worth a rat’s ass ages it’s whiskey in plastic barrels.

  38. Marc says:

    My 82 year old great-aunt drinks Negronis, and I think that single-handedly eliminates this as a “manly” drink.

  39. Negronis=Yum says:

    Your aunt has good taste! Hey is she seeing anyone right now?

  40. Matt says:

    yeah, i’m back again…Billius, i really wish you didn’t hate yourself so much… if you are an american(which i am) making all these comments, i hate you. if not, i still hate you. time to bring back the pride. i say again, AT sucks. imports suck. as a matter of fact, you suck. shame on anyone reading this who thinks the beer they drink makes them any more special than the pile of shit they really are. be proud of who you are. i like drinking natural light with my friends and just fucking around. to AT and Billius i say this, go waste your money on shit while i enjoy my life drinking what you call “piss water” and having a good time. AT and Billius,make sure your close match before you leave the house…your wouldn’t want to look like faggots now would you.
    love, matt.

  41. Matt says:

    that should say,”make sure your clothes match before you leave the house,” you cunts. i hope you both die.

  42. blueelm says:

    hate to break it to you, but that’s my favorite drink


  43. Cornholio says:

    I think this might be one of the few people that understand the phrase “tounge in cheek”.

    Seriously…. to all you morons who thought this was a serious list, you should go out and try drinking a few Irish Car Bombs then top it off with a Cement Mixer and see how Manly you feel ;) .

    I mean my god, who would honestly use the fact that a few Mafia guys liked a drink to make it “manly”?

    Come on people…. USE YOUR SENSE OF HUMOR!!!

  44. Anonymous says:

    Sure buddy, because everyone likes drinking rubbing alcohol….FAIL

  45. Billius says:

    I’m a dude and I’ve gotta say that AT has got this right. All you guys who are blasting her for what she said are just feeling insecure about themselves now that they’ve gotten called out by a chick.

    All these drinks are pretty girly. Irish car bomb with Bailey’s in it? Please. At least do it some justice and drop a full shot of whiskey into there if you MUST ruin a good Guiness. Also AT is absolutely correct that Guiness is hardly the best stout out there, nor is it the thickest as the writers of this article seem to think. Try a Samuel Smith’s oatmeal stout and tell me that Guiness is the thickest beer you’ve ever had. Hell, there are porters that are thicker than Guiness. Don’t get me wrong, great beer, I really enjoy it on occasion, but come on, at least know your shit before talking about it.

    Also, to whoever said that a guy drinking JD and Coke knows his whiskey? Right, JD is pretty close to the bottom of the barrel as far as mid-shelf whiskeys go. The only reason it gets so much recognition is because it has a good ad campaign. If it was really good you wouldn’t need to mask its taste with a soft drink.

  46. Tommy says:

    Thanks!!! Someone realizes that ordering mojitos in bulk in a packed bar is a sure fire way to piss the bartender off! Take a lesson from this guy.

  47. Anonymous says:

    cocktail means not just straight booze, and beer is manlier than everclear/corn alcohol anyday. can’t rattle the windows with a moonshine burp!

  48. matt says:

    While I’ll agree with you for the most part- nothing beats a great neat scotch or a martini. I have to disagree with you on the stouts. Guinness in it’s own right is a figurehead of a dry stout- I like Murphy’s more though- it’s a better dry stout. Old Rasputin is a great Imperial Stout, and Highlands Mocha is a good example of a American Stout, but I would take Cadillac Mountain Stout over it. But even though they are all stouts comparing these sub-styles are liking comparing apples, oranges, and bananas. Plus most stout these days don’t hold a candle to their ancestors which usually had 7-9% a/v. They were known as stout porters then shortened to stouts.

    So even though I like your examples and your name drops- but lumping them together is like lumping red wine into one style.

  49. melissa says:

    you mom.

  50. Shaun says:

    Great advice from someone who has no idea of what they are talking about.

    Claiming someone should like whiskey, scotch, or bourbon is downright redundant. Scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey, but thanks for showing you have no knowledge of your booze.

  51. obo says:

    “A man should know his beer” ??? WTF – beer is about the LEAST manly drink out there – and I hope to hell you are not referring to AMERICAN beer – comparable to a glass of water. Actually, even American liquor is widely considered tame – unless you make it (or obtain it) illegally.

  52. ElGuapo says:

    I agree, Guinness is hardly the kingliest of stouts….. I suggest Rogue Russian Imperial Stout!

  53. Out of my element says:

    I’m pretty sure that his dudeness could care less whether anyone thinks his drink of choice is manly or not. He just really, really likes half and half.

  54. Otis J. says:

    Dale’s isn’t a brewery (though it’s certainly a great pale ale) – It’s made by Oskar Blues. They have other great varieties including Old Chub and Yella Summer Pils.

    Hook and Ladder is a great craft brew for their somewhat limited variety. They also give back money to local firefighter burns centers. (I ran into one of their sales reps giving out samples at my local distributor)

  55. Billius says:

    “Piss water” sounds about right when talking about Natty Ice. If you’re such an all American why don’t you try some real GOOD American beers that are made by local breweries rather than big conglomerates who mass produce swill and don’t really care about their craft?

    Here’s a good starter list of solid American breweries for you if you wanna be a real American beer drinker:

    Dogfish Head
    Anchor Brewing
    North Coast Brewing Company (AT actually mentioned one of their brews in her post, so much for her only being a fan of imports)

    For more info you can peruse http://beeradvocate.com/ at your leisure. You might learn something and could start to work on that anger problem of yours. I know I’d be angry if I were drinking Natty Ice all the time…

  56. hardcore says:

    how about a jersey turnpike.. its pretty much the left over liquor that gets collected in those rubber mats on top of the bar where the bartender mixes the drinks (but u can only get it as the last shot of the night so u get a decent combo). thatll put some hair on ur sack.

  57. my penis is bigger than yours says:

    I personally like Prairie Fires. A shot of Tequilla with Tabasco on top.

  58. barketybark says:

    Anyone here dissing manhattans has not had one. They will kick your ass harder than anything you can imagine – don’t let the cherry fool you, kids.


  59. Jake Money says:

    Interesting, how many of you who have never had a Crown Royal Manhattan straight-up had something to say about it not being a “Man’s Drink”? Amazing, drink a few of them you little girls and let’s see you stagger out of your pussy little club where you’ve been drinking vodka and Red Bull……….basically a Screwdriver for the new millenium. Pussies.

    It’s a man’s cocktail- pure jet fuel- and great whiskey. Whiskey being a euphemism for “He of huge cock who drinks the water”.

    And the Rusty Nail ain’t bad either (with Johnny Black, of course…..)

  62. StevieWundr says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever had a single drink on this list – my old man (when he drank a cocktail) drank whiskey cocktails in a rocks glass. I remember the first time I went to the bar with the old guy, he ordered two of the usual, and I’ve been drinking the same thing at the same bar ever since.

    Bourbon, bitters, and a twist of lime – seem to recall it was an awfully popular cocktail among the war vets who all worked up at the refinery on 12 hour shifts while the wives stayed home and took care of the house.

    Manly? I dunno, but some of those guys are in their 70s and 80s now, and still nobody fucks with them in their bar.

  63. chadd says:

    some of the list is suspect, but i totally agree with the top 2 drinks.

    and anyone who rips on a manhattan needs to go back and sit at the kiddie table and play ‘go fish’ and finish their zima.

    I’d like to see you in about 10 years, “anonymous”. The kind of drinking you do will rot your brain in no time flat… But then I’m sure you’ve already had those moments where you promised God that you’d never drink again if he’d just make it all go away.

  66. Syn w/ Sapphire says:

    The #1 manly drink is brought to you by Krayzie Bone from Bone Thugs’N'Harmony.


    Equal parts Gin & Hennessey.

    And I quote: “Gimme some Gin; gimme some Hen. Nah, just gimme’m both and I’ll mix’m on in. Who wanna take a lil’ sip of this Syn? Let me get’cha twisted man.”

  67. Mossie Burke says:

    “irish car bomb” – that’s not a cocktail. maybe in america it is but in ireland( at least in dublin) a carbomb is just dropping a shot of anything into your pint( of guinness) and downing it.

  68. Andrew says:

    Hey bartenders, I have a deal for you: Stop making my martini’s dirty (unless I ask), and I promise not to order 4 Mojitos at 11pm on Saturday night!

  69. Chris says:

    manhattans are great. I’ve never met a girl who would dare touch one, even with that cherry tempting them. I wish they weren’t served in that fruity glass though– it definitely does tarnish its manability.

  70. L.Gayle. says:

    I have a vagina and love manhattans.
    That Jagerade shit sounds disgusting.
    The master hunter is best straight up…and that’s real.

  71. Carl says:

    This list is weak, I will only agree with the car bomb, the rusty nail, moonshine and the gin and juice, the rest of that crap sucks. When I was bartending, real men drank things with 2 ingridients, scotch and X, rum and X, whiskey and X, if ur not drinking that then have a beer and a shot and shut it.

  72. Oscar says:

    This list is missing the shot we invented one night when we were short on time to drink

    behold THE ABSITRON

    filled a shot glass with half absynthe and half gray goose

  73. Podge says:

    Ok so the dude drinks white russians and it really should be on the list just for that. He’s The Dude for fucks sake.
    After that whatever happened to a good old fashioned Whiskey Sour. It’s whiskey, it’s sour, it comes in a real glass not some poncey cocktail glass and 99.9% of women won’t touch it. And it’s still a classic.

  74. Alex says:

    My choice would be the Negroni, basically a Martini, but with added Campari and a slice of orange.

    Original Negroni Recipe
    - 1 oz gin
    - 1 oz Campari
    - 3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth

    Combine all ingredients in an ice filled shaker. Shake until well chilled and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a burnt orange. To make a burnt orange, cut about a 1 1/2 inch by 1 inch peel off a ripe navel orange. Be sure to get just the skin and as little of the pith as possible. Holding the orange peel between thumb and index fingers with skin facing out, hold a lit match over the glass and with the orange peel about an inch away from the flame squeeze the peel quickly and firmly between your fingers. When done correctly, a burst of flame will come from the oils being released from the peel leaving an aroma and adding a note of orange to the cocktail. Simply drop the twist in the drink.

  75. Just another drunk says:

    So, what do you people do for fun?

  76. Jack says:


    1 or 2 shots 151 (depending on time of night)
    6 shakes tabasco

    I’ve gotten many free drinks from bartenders who
    wanted to see me shoot it again

  77. AT says:

    Lord, I’m a woman and those aren’t the most manly drinks. Maybe manly if you’re wearing Dockers and a Corona visor. In which fact, you’re a boring, prefabbed shell of a “man”, a term I use loosely. You’re only drinking these stupid shots and drinks to impress your equally douchey, fraternizing friends. You’re the kinda “man” we make fun of in our bars as soon as you darken the doorway. You, and the other 10 dudes you’re hanging out with, all wearing different pastel colored Polo’s. You look like an Easter basket, and you’re drunk. Great.

    A man should know his beer, know a bit about wine and enjoy one or more of the following: whiskey, scotch, bourbon. The brown liquors. He musn’t drink these with mixers, if anything- on the rocks. Vodka and gin are lovely but please drink them in proper martinis or on the rocks, maybe with a splash and a dash of bitters. Non flavored vodkas unless we’re speaking of the essence of citrus or juniper berries.

    And hear hear to the Guinness comments. It may be a lovely beer, but it’s by no means the figurehead of stouts. Mmm, Highlands Black Mocha Stout. Mmm, North Coast Old Rasputin.

  78. Acai Smith says:

    haha hat’s great!

  79. Wade says:

    I thought that was called a “prairie fire”. But anyways That is a pretty tough shot. haha

  80. Tommy says:

    Yeah, I totally agree with you on every point you made! I bartend in a college town and the amount of frats boys in pastel polos that ordered sex on the beach last night made me sick! I mean, it’s frickin’ friday night, we have a half off scotch special, learn how to drink.

    real men do not have 99% of any ingredient so far listed here. we have beer, our fav., whatever it is, 1-3 bottles of HARD alcohol whatever we or our friends most like. and that is it. if we think females might come over, we will fill 2 trays(cause that is all we have) and hope the freezer will freeze them in time. no fancy brandy, martini, etc., glasses, certainly not fruit, or grenadine, or the like, (who does?). and over time, we discover that to get the pretty girl, we do not get drunk.

    It’s obviously been covered but this list was really stupid.

    You have a very loose grasp on alcoholic beverages.

    Also Guinness is a VERY light beer. The nitrogen gives it the apperance of being a heavy stout but it is actually lighter in calories than just about any American micro-brewed pale ales.

    If you are going to take the time to put something like this together PLEASE at least know what you are talking about. I gave this a thumbs-down on stumble to help prevent anyone else from seeing this garbage.

    To drink a drink just because it’s “Manly” shows that you’re just a boy. It also amuses me to hear people comment how soft Guinness is, compared to other stouts.

If I’m buying, it Guinness, or Black & water, you arrogant little twats. Put that in your shotglass, ya fruity bastards!

  108. ithurtswhenipee says:

    “My drink is the strongest; My drink is the grossest; my drink has X in it; My drink doesn’t have X in it” Bunch of pussy bullshit! A real man will not drink just anything so long as it is something that nobody else would drink. A real man doesn’t drink something because it has X% of alcohol. (those are drinks that are dared to be drunk by fratboys, notice that there is no such word as fratmen) A real man drinks what he wants to drink because the taste is pure and satisfying. Not because it will impress anybody or get him drunk. In fact, real men don’t get drunk.

    ive had plenty of prarie fires and they’re gross dude. They aren’t manly, just nasty. Same with dirty panties, which are essentially the same thing just with more nasty sauces put in.

You also don’t look like a teenage bum who finally got into the bar when drinking it- like the kids in the corner of the bar giggling over the prarie fire or dirty panties name. Manhattan for the winner. And if you don’t think it’ll get you drunk you’re surely mistaken.

    The biggest prob with this post is that you have the words…. manly and cocktail in the same sentence! its straight up or nothing. once you staright mixin shit you just got gay!

For one thing, ordering beer all the time is BORING, doesn’t show you have a whole lot of depth and that you are def not too creative.

  130. Kev says:

    I feel like scotch and soda as well as highball should be on the list.

    For those of you that don’t know, “highball” originally didn’t refer to an entire class of drinks (highballs), but just to one cocktail, which was:

    -1 Part Whiskey
    -1 Part Ginger Ale
    -Lemon Twist

    It was called a highball because of the old system that the railroads used to use to display traffic on the lines (nowadays they use red, yellow, and green lights). The old system had a ball which was positioned at low, middle, or high. Low meant the most traffic, high meant the least.

    If the ball was high, it meant that the trains could go fast, and that the train workers would have time to stop for a drink when the train came into a station.

    Well, that’s how the legend goes, anyway.

    Railroad workers plus whiskey equals manly. End of story.

  131. Not-So-Innocent-bystander says:

    I love that brewery. The World Wide Stout is fantastic (as is most of what they release). Try Avery Mephistopheles.. about the same, a little different overtones and finish. About the same price and ABV. I’ll pick up a bottle or 2 a month if I can’t find Dogfishhead WWS.

    #1 probably a young punk ass who isnt old enough to drink beer.
    #2 If you are, and if you do drink Natural light, you, in your own words, suck. This is shit beer. They call it natural because it is as close to the natural urine from your bladder. Is that why you like it?
    #3 You are a typical jerkwad keyboard warrior. You are more likely a pimple faced, little dicked, ugly little mommies boy who has no friends. You wouldnt be brave enough to say anything to anyone like you spew from your shithole mouth.
    #4 Get a life little boy. You will grow up, maybe,.. if someone doesnt beat you to death.
    #5 I have found that when someone constantly uses the word suck and faggot and fag and that kind of talk, they have a deep rooted inner battle over homosexuality.
    Are you gay? Maybe you need to find out. I think you may be. While your at it. Why dont you just go get drunk on your Natural piss and drive into a tree, that is if you are old enough to drive. Otherwise eat shit and die.

    Sounds like some of these people are metro sexual or closet gays! Jager and car bombs get old once you graduate college. It doesnt matter in the end what you drink as long as you get drunk. For instance dont take your fancy ass high dollar beer on a boat to go fishing. Theres a purpose for the cheap stuff, when you have friends that dont care what they drink or you just plan on boiling some bratwurst. But it is a gay thing to do and order some cheezy ass chick drinks when your at the bar. And the whole club scene is gay too! Just call it a freakin bar. Guys that spend too much time dressing up for the bar is gay, and so are his friends, cause chances are they talk about their clothes. Chicks should be the only ones spending more than 20-30 minutes getting ready. Thats all women really have going for them is looks anyways. And a man bag is gay too! Besides all that I have a few beers I like. Mac&Jacks, Smithwicks, and Whidmer. Cheap stuff does serve a purpose though. I really only drink Gin & Tonics mainly for liquor. All the rest is useless to me but then again they might work for you.

    I have no idea where your idea of “manly” lies, but most men I know wouldn’t know those drinks you posted…

    A Long Island Ice Tea might be the extent of a complex mixed drink. Followed by a Margarita or a Skip and Go Naked (pushing the extremes here)

    The rest would be something pretty simple like a Bloody Mary, Gin and Tonic, Jack and Coke, or a Seven and Seven….

    Otherwise you could expect orders of straight shots of whatever was on hand followed by the local beer of the area we were frequenting.

    Wine was for wannabe pussies or officers.

    However being from enlisted stock that’s done a bit of traveling throughout the world as an Army paratrooper and Ranger, you shouldn’t take my word for it…..

    After all, a manly experience in most peoples eyes now days has nothing to do with what men from my generation thought manly at the time.

    Maybe you meant “manly” by todays standards?

    If so, I do apologize.

    Fill a small, wide glass !/2 full with ANY blue liquer (doesn’t matter, drink tastes like ass anyways), then fill a shot glass with any clear liquor and set it in the middle of the glass. set the shot of clear liquor on fire. it looks like a viking burial.

    The drink sucks, but who cares, nothing mroe manly than a drink based after vikings and death.

  193. Andrew Norris says:

    good call great dane, i did try the viking burial once with Aquavit. and it actually got that taste of disgusting blue liqeur out of my mouth. Brutal.

    Oh, here’s another real man drink:

    take one glass, bottle, or can of beer (beer can be substituted for liquor) and then use some sort of tobacco.

    Thats what I do, it goes well with my beard and chest hair.

    Does anyone else drink their soco wth diet instead of regular coke? i just don’ like normal coke because sugary drinks are for little girls, and soco is borderline too sweet anyways.

    I just like talking about alcohol.

    BIGDICK “I used to drink Jack Daniels and nothing else. Then I started having a hard time getting out of bed everyday. I didn’t think much of it until my life started becoming much more difficult than it used to be. I couldn’t understand what was going on. Then I had a bright idea and switched to Johnny Walker Black. I thought that if I switched I’d start feeling better. I did for a while, but I think that was just the placebo thing-a-ma-jig. I got to a point where I really didn’t care about much. A friend of my told me about AA. I know, I know. Sounds like a cop-out. But if you think drinking makes you a man, see how much stuff you’ve got- walk into an AA meeting and tell everyone in the room that you’re an Alkie! That takes real guts. I never looked back. I put my life back together and, you wouldn’t believe it- No more hangovers- PRICELESS!”

    Baby couldn’t handle his drinkies… So sad. Maybe if you invested in a pair of testicles instead of opting for the cock enhancement surgery, you wouldn’t have had such a pathetic life.

    The list is meh at best.

    Want a fun drink?

    1oz of Southern Comfort
    1oz of Jagermeister
    1oz of Gin

    Mix with some soda water and add ice to a highball glass. If you’ve not gone through a second puberty, you’ve done it wrong.

    For those wanting the UK version of snakebite with a little more bite, try 1 bottle Carlsberg Elephant Beer plus 1 bottle Diamond White with your shot of blackcurrant.

    Any manly coktail should be salty

    i’m pretty sure that picture of “gin and juice” is actually a sad attempt at a mojito; lime, crumpled mint leaf.

    great choice for #1! not that i’m biased. nice to see someone point out that a manhattan is supposed to be made with rye, not bourbon.

  201. HAWKEYE says:


  202. hazhaz says:

    a proper martini should be at least 4 parts gin (preferably 6) to 1 part vermouth, with an olive.
    btw the jakies round here drink buckfast and white lightning cider cocktails – not sure its a “man’s” drink as such, but lord, its effective.
    the real gone alkies drink gloss paint filterd through a white loaf – not recommended.

  203. kb says:

    good list. here’s one that’s probably not well known (for good reason). very good for shutting up anyone who claims they will drink anything.

    Urine Sample

    2 shots everclear
    add to 1/2 pint good ‘ol American swill lager
    served warm (not lukewarm, more like just-left-the-human-body warm). best way is to microwave the drink for a short time. definetely not something to make for yourself!

    if you can guzzle this with a straight face, you’re far more manly then i am.

    Really, definitely missing the white russian!
    Also, I was under the impression that the snake bite was harp & cider as well!

    Groovy list, however!

  207. Paul says:

    Ok, a PROPER Martini is all about technique….

    Fill your shaker with ice, add a 1/2 jigger of vermouth…. shake well… dump the vermouth out, a tiny amount adheres to the sides and the ice, thats just enough.

    Pour the gin into the shaker, and STIR to combine. Sorry guys, Bond had this one wrong, a shaken Martini gets too cold too fast and comes out a bit off. Strain into a Martini glass and enjoy.

    I am overjoyed to see that Martini’s on this list are all made with Gin, not Vodka… a vodka vermouth may be a nice drink, but a Martini it is not.

  208. Jon says:

    Kentucky Bourbon served neat appears to be missing from your “list”, so is Gin and Tonic. Too many of these “cocktails” seem to be mixed drinks.

    My Martini:
    3 1/2 oz Gin
    1/2 tsp Dry Vermouth (not quite Churchill style)
    Lime Twist (preferably a real twist and not a wedge, lime juice in the martini ruins it, just he essential oils are all I want, you should see them on the surface of the drink)

    It is quite refreshing on a summer day.

  209. Alex says:

    you forgot liquid cocaine, mongolian motherf*****, and this drink at rum jungle at mandalay bay called the volcano which is bacardi 151, bacardo 151(dif from bacardi), and red juice…..those are hardcore man drinks

    Here’s a really manly shot, it’s called Jet Fuel. It consists of equal parts 151, Jager, and Ice 101. A bar I used to frequent would give them out free at closing time. It will put hair on your chest.

  214. cori says:

    What about the Three Wisemen? Three of my favorite men….taken consecutively and it will knock you on your butt. I’ve also had this shot at bars that put all three shots in a small glass and you chug…

    A shot of Jack, a shot of Jim, and a shot of Jose all taken one right after another.

  215. Andy says:

    Guinness is the world’s thickest stout? Lol. Wow. The final gravity of guinness is lower than that of many mainstream lagers, even, let alone any real stout. There are stouts out there that are in an actual physical sense 13%+ thicker.

  216. Phalaeo says:

    As much as I’m a fan of neat whiskey and water, it ain’t really a cocktail, issit?

    Herradura Anejo, rocks with a little salt and a squeeze of lime. Plain and simple… Not much more manly than that. Used to be a JD man but Tequila is my drink of choice now.

  218. Waka Jawaka says:

    Sweet Jesusmeister

    Fire&Ice and Jeigermeister. Also, kudos to three wisemen previously posted. You’ll hear voices. My buddy and I that came up with the sweet jesusmeister drink all three wisemen separately then slam a tall sweet jesusmeister. We sometimes act out the nativity when imbibing. This is not something you end the night with. Good tip: ask the bartender for a made-up shot. When they don’t know what you’re talking about and you educate them, they sometimes don’t know what to charge you. This can backfire and you get charged more than you wanted to spend. “Hey landlord, set me up a nativity.”

  219. D says:

    I can’t believe the Cement Mixer was left off of this list.

    1 shot Bailey’s® Irish cream, 1/2 shot lime juice, 1/2 shot 151 proof rum.

    Fill one shot glass with Bailey’s. Fill second shot glass with Lime and 151. Pour Bailey’s into mouth, do not swallow. Pour Lime and 151 into mouth. Shake head back and fourth, the shot will turn solid.

    This list is alright but I can think of a ton of other drinks that are more manly. This list is probably the list of drinks you can have a few times without throwing up and passing out. However I know there are better, more manly drinks out there like “Liquid Cocaine” and the “Adios Mother F*cker” that are more manly than these.

    Technically those are shots though.

  223. Jason says:

    Half of these posters come across as 18 year olds trying to sound more ‘manly’ than the last.

    “YOU GUYS SUCK!! I drink straight ethenol… and light my FACE on FIRE with it too! Yeah! That’s a real mans drink!1!!”

    Let me assure you, you’re not impressing anyone.

    The list is decent, if not perfect. These are drinks that an actual sane man would drink. Guiness may not be the Thickest Stout ever, but compared to the fizzy yellow piss-water that most American’s call beer, it’s pretty damn close.

  224. Palooka says:


    Bond doesn’t drink martinis. He drinks vodka, straight.

    Why a man of such refine would fall short in his choice of drink is beyond me.

    Vodka is for sorority girls.

    You might want to try a bloody bull: 2 oz tequilla, 1/2 tomato juice, 1/2 beef bouillon, then garnished or spiced with whatever you want. Nobody would question your manhood, even in your tight matador outfit.

    Also, the pictures are wrong. The snakebite photo looks like some cream drink and the Gin and Juice has mint and cucumber in it, which seems like it’s probably a fancy Gin and Tonic or a sorry-ass Mojito.

    Guiness is the thickest stout in the world? Bullshit, Guiness is the *weakest* stout in the world. Except for maybe Beamish. Maybe.

    And the original Sazerac recipe did call for absinthe, and used cognac instead of rye, people starting substituting rye because of the difficulty obtaining cognac during prohibition.

    Jesus fucking christ, do your research.

  239. Rod Zombie says:

    I believe the list was written by an 18 year old. No professional drinker would come within a mile of most of them. Irish Cream is NEVER manly, no matter how much whiskey or Guinness you mix it with, nor is anything made with “Sunkist”. And Yukon Jack is a teenager’s idea of whiskey. ‘Nuff said.

    My liver laughs at this list and its author!

    The Sterno Haemorrhage

    1. Get 2 small cans of Sterno fuel. (Used to keep catering trays hot)

    2. Scoop the gel out of both cans, (about 12 oz.) and stuff it down one of the socks you’ve been wearing since whenever.

    For all you Phillies fans out there, the most Manly drink ever created is a Burrel Bomb.

    It’s taken just like an Irish Car Bomb but consist of a half glass of Red Bull and a shot of Tequilla. Every time Pat Burrel hits a homer, me and my fellow Phillies fans rush to the nearest bar, if we aren’t already there, and down one for our favorite left fielder in the game. Oh and if he hits multiple homers in a game, each homerun you double the content of the drink.


  251. The Hero of Canton says:

    Keep it simple: Scotch & Soda. Unfortunately I have ordered this and on numerous occasions had a cocktail waitress give me a list of the different types of soda they offer “okay for soda we have mello yellow, Coke, sprite, etc, etc” If I am feeling nice I just say “tell the bartender I want a Scotch & Soda” if I am not feeling nice, I say ” You no the soda gun behind the bar that all the different soda’s come out of? Use the really big button labeled soda”. For Christ’s sake it’s a two-component drink, the name of both drink components are in the name of the drink, and I have still actually been served a scotch and Sprite.

    On another note, even when it does get made with the proper ingredients, before I take a sip, I slide it over to my friend who shall we say “does not appreciate the flavor of peat” and if he doesn’t cringe, I make the bartender remake the drink.

    If your asking why I am drinking with someone who “doesn’t appreciate the taste of peat”, he often buys.

  252. WeaponOfChoice says:

    I think the list could use a little tweaking, there are some manly drinks left off and some pussy drinks put on, but the argument must be made that to drink Bacardi 151 with anything is just gross. Stuff tastes like shit, and if you’re going to drink something that strong, get your hands on some good ol moonshine. I had some that was 180 proof. Almost pure alcohol. That shot put some hair on my chest. Point is, 151 isnt manly, its disgusting. Its for guys who want to look manly by drinking the strongest legal drink.
