The ingredients for a margarita are 1 1/2 ounces of tequila, 1/2 ounce of triple sec (an orange-flavored liqueur) and 1 ounce of lime juice. Pour all three ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice in it. Shake the drink, and then pour it into a chilled glass that has a salted rim. Serve the margarita neat or on the rocks.

The ingredients for a martini are 4 ounces of gin and 1 ounce of dry vermouth. Pour both ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice in it and stir. Pour the drink into a chilled martini glass. An olive can be added as a garnish.

The ingredients for a mojito are 10 mint leaves, 1/2 of a lime cut into 4 wedges, 2 tablespoons of white sugar, 1 1/2 ounces of white rum and 1/2 cup of club soda. Place the mint leaves and one lime wedge into a glass, and then crush. Add the sugar and two more lime wedges to the mixture, and then crush again.

    How do energy drinks work?

    A:

    Energy drinks work primarily by distributing a large amount of caffeine to the central nervous system which gives the drinker a greater feeling of alertness.
