The Margarita is a popular cocktail made with tequila, triple sec and lime juice. The drink is sometimes served with salt on the rim of the iconic glass named after the drink, which is similar to the cocktail glass but steps in, creating a “well” at the bottom.
Another modern classic is the cosmopolitan which features citrus vodka (also known as vodka citron) and cranberry juice, along with a touch of triple sec (the official recipe calls for Cointreau, but any quality triple sec will do the job!) This cocktail should be served in a cocktail glass and can be garnished with a slice of lime to decorate.

I drank my first Aviation this month at Continental in the Palace Shops at Caesar's Atlantic City. A purple drink in a martini glass that tastes like violets, gin, lemon and maraschino cherries. There is a God after all.
