Most classic cocktails


I want to have a sort of get together/cocktail party with some friends and I sorta want to theme it to have really classy cocktails, like ones that have been around for a long time and are considered "classics". Some ones I could think of were Martini, Manhattan, Daiquiri, and Sidecar.

So I'm hoping I can get some good suggestions here. Thanks!

Old Fashioned, aka the Brown Mumbler. I like them with Jim Beam, but in Wisconsin that'll get you tossed out of the tavern. They use brandy. Many many ways to make them, just make sure you use Angastora Bitters.
