Default top 10 mixed drinks to try before you die?

I never been a big hard alcohol drinker, even mixed drinks, i have always stuck mostly with beer. In your opinion, what are the top 10 best mixed drinks you must try atleast once?

1. bloody mary?
2. gin and tonic?
3. mimosa?
4. bourbon and ginger?
5. redbull and vodka?
6. margarita?
7. martini?
8. screwdriver?
9. long island ice tea?

None of the above. The only drink I like that is "mixed" is a martini.

But if it has to be a mixed drink, I'd do this:

1. Michelada
2. Gin and tonic
3. Bourbon and water (or ice chips) but I don't think that really counts as it's more straight.
4. Margarita (but no mix- only good tequila, fresh squeezed limes, a tiny bit of cointreau and over ice)
5. Bloody Marys on Sunday mornings at 10 AM, with a possibility of bloody Marias for backup.

That's all I can think of. Most soft drink/booze combinations are vile. Mixing a nice hard liquor with things like soda/redbull/etc sound beyond gross to me.

I'd rather just have a straight Scotch than ANY mixed drink, but that wasn't the question.

here's something to try: absinthe, lime, mint, ice, sprite.

although I usually stick to Irish single malt these days, other than beer of course.

I don't drink spirits as a rule, if I do it is either neat Scotch, a Margharita or an extra dirty/extra olives martini. That being said I had something that was really cool several years ago- Flaming Dr Pepper.

Moscow Mule - made well, with spicy ginger beer, not run-of-the-mill ginger ale.

In no particular order:

Long Island
Mai Tai - near or on a beach...oh yeah!
Margarita - the actual recipe without premade mix
Pisco Sour - Peruvian-style; definitely no "sour mix"
Dry Martini
Amaretto Sour
Whiskey & Coke
Mint Julep - I like to mix up a batch and leave it in the back of my frig for at least a couple of months
Mimosa or Belini at a brunch
White Russian
