Take a cocktail with which you are familiar and check out how many variations there are, one of which you might actually prefer over the original. To avoid getting stuck with something you cannot stand, look at the drink's rating (from one to ten stars), based on how many votes were cast for or against it.
If you have invented a new drink of your own or simply discovered one that isn't well known yet, you can go to the "Forum and Chat" section, and find the Recipe Exchange. Here's an example of a recipe that caught my eye, as an old fan of Jack LaLane and his Juicer commercials:
