If there is one thing that I hope my blog does here it is to alleviate what I call bar fear. Bar fear is experienced when people are too afraid to place an order for a drink because they are scared of what they will get. After all, it could be something you don't like. People like this tend to order beer or wine because they know what they are getting.
Or perhaps you just have problems deciding what drink to get. This category of posts is for you.
I find that when I go into a bar it depends on my mood as to what I order. However, those who have bar fear do not have this instinct because they don't really know what they like.
Let's start here. Vodka is a good safe liquor that can be easily mixed with just about anything. By law in the US vodka is to be tasteless and colorless, it is anyway so I don't know why they made a law.
Now if you are in the mood for something sweet, think about fruit juices you like. Cranberry and Orange Juice for example mix very well with vodka. Don't let the names of drinks throw you, just because something is called a Cap Codder or Screwdriver it doesn't mean that it is complicated. (By the way, vodka and cranberry is a Cap Codder and vodka and orange juice is a Screwdriver.)
You can walk into any bar anywhere and order a vodka and cranberry juice with no problem.
