You know, cocktails are like hardware. Don't wonder which computer to buy; figure out what software you want to run.
In the same vein, don't decide on a cocktail until you know whether you'd rather have something long, cool, and not too strong to cool off on a hot day ... or get drunk.
Margaritas, martinis, Manhattans, kamikazis and gimlets are for getting drunk.

I like my slushy, sweet, probably filled with HFCS margaritas. Fortunately I only have one about every six months.

Here, here. Back when I could drink, I liked my margaritas (and everything else) straight up.

The frozen margarita is an abomination before the Lord.
Frozen DAIQUIRIES, on the other hand....

I may be one of those savages.. no idea about cocktails. No idea about wine. Vodka & cranberry for me. Should I go live in a cave? I may have to de-lurk here more often.. might learn something.

Um. If you read the post carefully, you will see the point I was making concerns drinks which have been bastardized.
To use your example, it's as if you asked for a vodka and cranberry "but with rum instead of vodka, and could you put maple syrup instead of the cranberry?"

A fair slap, I was simply admitting to an authority that I wouldn't know if a drink had been bastardized, as I know virtually nothing about drinks.. (slinking away) Rum and maple syrup? It will never catch on.

I hope it doesn't.
The best way to tell if a drink has been bastardized is this:
1- Is it slushy?
2- Is it tooth-rattlingly sweet?
3- Is it a flourescent color? (Optional)

Aah yes. The ones my father-in-law calls leg-openers.
