Drinks for Two #1: Chilling in the name of

You're having a great time with your date, both enjoying eachother's company. Laughing and joking, you make your way to the bar. The bartender asks what you two will have. She says "get me something I'll like." You panic as you realize you know nothing outside of a rum & coke, screwdriver and vodka martini - shaken not stirred. Clumsily, you try to spot an alcohol behind the bar and think of a juice and spit the two out at the barman.
"Drinks for two" will be an ongoing article giving you ideas what to order yourself and your date as you approach the bar.

1 1/2 oz. Canadian Club

1/2 oz. Sweet Vermouth

3/4 oz. Vodka
1/2 oz. Blue Curacao
1/4 oz Triple Sec
