Right if your doing cocktails for the older people, try sticking to the classics, anything from your whiskey sour to an igloo, sea breeze's could go down well... in my experiance as you get older you start to loose your sweet tooth, so think along the lines of your more sour cocktails, altho saying that you need to have the sweet fruity ones just incase

just my opinion

[b:73d709e08c][color=violet:73d709e08c]I think any of the ones mentioned about would work. I think I'd also stick with any of the following:

Any collins drinks - John Collins, Tom Collins, Vodka collins, Tequila Collins.

Or any of the old "high ball" drinks, such as bourbon and water might probably be popular - I'd rely on a "good" bourbon though.

The ever famous Old Fashioned Cocktail might be popular with the older crowd too.

I think a good martini - gin or vodka, or Manhattans might be on the popular list, as well.

I wouldn't leave out the Cosmopolitan either - for the ladies Smile

Good luck Smile
