When it comes to cocktails, the more simple, the better, in my world. Something strong, not sweet. There's nothing more unappealing to me than a glass of bright blue or pink liquid with questionable amounts of mixer, with what's obviously enough sugar to attract every fly within a 3 mile radius. Give me a classic: a Manhattan, a martini, a negroni, a whisky sour. But if I had to pick a favourite, I'd go with a classic margarita. Not one of those crazy blended things with a bunch of sugary bar lime, a slushy drink with a splash of tequila on top. No, seƱor. Margaritas are made of three things. Tequila, some orange liquor (I'm actually not fussy here), and lime juice. In a glass with a coarse salted rim, and ice. Perfection. 

And unlike most cocktails, actually tastes good with the cuisine that usually accompanies it. Our Mexican food nights in Egypt usually saw me squeezing limes for the better part of an hour, and having a sore arm the next day. Totally worth it.
