Here you've got the Cosmopolitan, the Espresso Martini, the White Russian, and tiki bar favourite, the Bahama Mama. All definitive drinks, in our view. Like your favourite vinyl album, on the flip-side of the menu, the Classics, is the real big hitters: the Mojito, the Long Island Ice Tea, the Dirty Martini, and the Mai Tai.
