5 'Secret Menu' Drink Recipes You Need to Know About

drinkRecently, I celebrated Kate Moss' birthday by fixing myself a stiff French 76. I did this because, one, it's Kate's favorite drink, and two, I'm a loser. It was a good cocktail. A bit sweet; a bit bubbly; and I felt pretty fancy drinking it.

A few weeks later, I was out with a friend and I casually tried to order one from the bartender. He looked at me like I had just asked him for a salt-rimmed glass filled with blood. So I wanted to share the French 76 recipe with you -- because odds are, unless you're at the Ritz Paris or Kate Moss' house, you ain't gettin' it. And while we're at it, I thought I'd throw in some other "little known" beverages -- both alcoholic and non-alcoholic -- as well. (Yes, we're talking Starbucks secret menu drinks here, too.)

Here are five little-known beverages you really ought to know about. And by "know about," I mean "be drinking".
