Do you think you have tried it all, from the classiest wines and the booziest cocktails and from the fancy drinks to the local concoctions? But, have you ever tried something called a ‘Short Trip to Hell’? Or, did you ever sip on ‘Archie Rose’? It turns out there are still a lot of drinks that you are yet to try out.
There is no harm to reach out for your favorite champagne, wine, or whiskey as the safe bets. But, a little experimentation and switching up things from time to time is essential to keep it interesting. Here are the five incredible drinks that you must try out.
1. Short Trip to Hell
You might be someone who only loves to sip on a nice Merlot at any time of the day. But wait before you stay away from this cocktail only by hearing its name. True to its rather unusual name, this one is going to knock your senses in the best possible way. It comes in a fiery red color and contains an eclectic mix of five ingredients, Redbull, Jägermeister, wildberry schnapps, strawberry schnapps, and peach schnapps. Everything about this drink served in Collins glass screams unique and amazing.
2. Archie Rose
You might be thinking that Archie Rose is just another gin, and you have tried plenty of gins for it to be unique. But, this famous Australian gin tastes quite well and feels so smooth that it’s a must-try. It’s a bit on the pricier side, but worth the money for its excellent taste.
Besides, there are so many ways in which you can try this smooth spirit. You can go to the old school way and mix it with a good tonic, take a different route and mix a bit of lime and mint or ginger juice and fresh pear to enhance its flavors. Many people love to have Archie Rose over ice, which is a subtle combination as well.
3. Drunken Sailor
Aren’t you tired of having the same rum and coke but don’t want to stray too far from your trusted favorite? The Drunken Sailor is like a variation for the ones who want to jazz up their rum and coke without being too experimental about it.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that it’ll taste exactly like your classic favorite. The unusual combination of flavors elevates this drink to a point where it’s nothing like a standard rum and coke but a considerably improved version of it.
As for the ingredients, you will need some fine quality spiced rum, diet coke, citron vodka, lemon juice, and a sprinkle of salt. Mix it all up in a shake and pour in a pilsner glass to serve.
You might have heard the mention of this drink somewhere from someone, but don’t dismiss it before trying. Even though it has an odd name, the fuzzy navel is also an exciting concoction that can steal your heart away. And the best part is that it’s pretty easy to make. So, to start with, you will need a bit of fresh orange juice and peach schnapps. Add some champagne and a little bit of sugar if you have that on hand to this mix. Now, give this fruity concoction and the right combination, and it’s ready.
Though you can have this drink anytime you want, it’s best to have it during brunch. Keep a few mimosas and screwdrivers on the side to complete the spread.

Just a few subtle changes in the preparation process elevate this drink to a whole new level of awesomeness. You can prepare this vodka by traditional methods using organic wheat and blending it down using fresh spring water.
