Simple Drinks for Stupid People

The Hairpin offers some solid and simple cocktail advice ahead of the outdoor drinking season.

We’re grownups, and we owe it to ourselves to know how to make proper cocktails. I don’t care if you’re over the whole bartender-with-a-handlebar-mustache-in-sleeve-garters thing, good cocktails are here to stay. Even at one of those half-assed house parties where the liquor selection is a random jumble of bottles with a forlorn, unwashed shaker jammed in with an ancient thing of angostura, you can drink something nice, even if you have to drink it out of a plastic cup like an animal. Plus you can make up your own cocktail recipes to impress your friends and future lovers. It’s all about ratios!
