You'll like it if: You're a fan of fruity drinks with carbonation and a kick. It's a sweeter option for those who prefer whiskey or gin -- so tell your guy he should give it a try even though it seems like a "girly drink."
How to make it: In a highball glass nearly full with ice, pour 1 oz. raspberry-flavored vodka. Fill the remaining space with ginger beer (about 5 oz.), squeeze a bit of lime on top and garnish with the peel. I'm a huge fan of drinks involving ginger beer because I have a sensitive stomach, so it keeps me from feeling sick in addition to tasting wonderful. Since there's nothing super syrupy or heavy, the drink feels more like a boozy soda than an overly sweet cocktail. Plus, you can always make it diet by swapping the ginger beer for a lower calorie version!
