No matter how easy it is to buy pre-made cocktails, alcopops, or good old beer these, every Partyphile must master at least three cocktail recipes.
I'm not suggesting that you go all out or study bar tending extensively; I'm just saying that it is good to have at least three mastered cocktails in your pocket when the opportunity comes to impress your fellow partyphiles or when there is no bartender in sight.
It would be wise to master three cocktails with the same ingredients as well so that you could make more cocktails with a limited set of ingredients and impress everyone with your tending know-how.
