I'm with Alan here, alas. Can't really think of anything that would
substitute for tequila. Equal parts vodka and commercial degreasing
fluid, perhaps.

Well.. this isn't going to be much help to you, but the aforementioned
Long Island Iced Tea is one of the best; another one, particularly
fantastic on a hot summer day, is the classic Tequila Sunrise.

Other great cocktails/mixed drinks include the Black Russian, the
Manhattan, and the Whiskey Sour.

I confess to a terrible weakness for 'girly' cocktails, which is a
source of much amusement to my friends. Favourites include the Fruit
Tingle (the otherwise-noxious Blue Curacao, raspberry cordial, Lemonade,
and Vodka for kick) and the Illusion (Midori, Vodka, Pineapple, dash
of Blue Curacao (for colour more than anything), Malibu, and
miscellaneous bar drip-tray runoff).

Really, you can see why they laugh at me. In my defense, I hardly
ever drink cocktails, usually sticking with beer or straight

Another suggestion from a workmate: the Toblerone (Frangelico, Kahlua,
Baileys, milk, honey, chocolate shavings optional). These are
FANTASTIC (as is anything involving Frangelico).
