Agent OrangeYou could also try something simple like a Jack & Coke. Seeing as how it's damned cold around here, (for here, anyway), I feel compelled to suggest something in the way of a hot drink? This one works well, assuming you have some whipped cream.
1 1/2 oz Southern Comfort
1 1/2 oz Jack Daniel's
8 oz orange juice
Mix in a tall glass. Adjust orange juice to taste.

The prettier, politer, and meaner half of YPS is partial to vodka. A favorite recipe of hers follows.
1 oz Jack Daniel's
1 oz Bailey's Irish Cream
Pour the Jack & Bailey's into a mug. Fill with coffee and garnish with whipped cream.
Vodka ShotIf you're feeling a bit less hard, try this.
1 1/2 oz Grey Goose, Ketel One, White Gold, or Stolichnaya
Place vodka in freezer. When the consistency resembles Caro syrup, it's time to drink. As J says, "Mixers are for wusses."
White RussianSo have a drink a celebrate your freedom to do so! Or not. Don't let me tell you what to do.
1 1/2 oz Tito's Handmade Vodka
1 1/2 oz Kahlua
Half-and-half or Light cream
Fill cocktail glass with ice. Add Tito's and Kahlua. Fill with light cream and stir to mix.
