This second list of drinks is very similar to the highballs in that most only have one or two spirits or mixers and are served on the rocks. Drinks of this style are often called lowballs because they are short (small volume) and are served in a lowball, or old-fashioned, glass.

Some of these drinks can also be shaken and served in a cocktail glass, depending on the preferences of your customer. To make them easier to memorize, notice that many of these drinks are similar to others and it is often the change of a single ingredient that separates them.
