28. Black and Tan
A black and tan is a beer cocktail that involves a blend of dark and pale beer where these are layered in the glass. This is possible because the dark beer has a lower relative density than the bottom beer. To make the drink, the pale beer needs to be added first and then the dark beer poured slowly on top. The best way to do this is to pour the top layer over an upside down spoon to prevent the layers to mix.
27. Whiskey Sour
A whiskey sour is a refined drink with a combination of whisky, lemon juice and sugar. It is a shaken drink that can be served on the rocks or straight up. The sugar is often provided in the form of syrup, as is the case of many mixed drinks. The taste ultimately depends on who makes the drink and the combination of ingredients, but they taste a little bit like lemonade and whisky, and the lemon juice actually tends to make the taste of the whisky a bit more interesting.
A snakebite is a deceptively simple mixed drink. The drink just involves lager and cider, roughly in equal quantities. The name snakebite is very suitable, because it really does have a bite. There is a little bit of controversy about the drink, especially in the United Kingdom, where bars may sometimes refuse to sell the drink. The reason for this is that the mix of alcohol can often get people drunk very quickly and it is a frequent choice by people trying to get wasted.
The godfather is simple mixed drink, containing equal parts of amaretto and Scotch whisky. It is served on the rocks in an old fashioned glass (the same glass as the old fashioned drink). The source of the drink’s name is not clear, although it does seem to have a strong reference to the Godfather movies. There is also a godchild variation, which uses brandy instead of scotch. There is also a godmother variation, which replaces the whisky with vodka.
