What is a good drink for a college-aged girl?

Okay this will probably sound dumb but I need to know: what are some good drinks that would be liked by pretty much any girl of a college-ish age (20's)? I'm 22 but I am mostly into drinking my drinks more straight up or simply on ice. But I don't think this girl that I am going to have over will like that much; but I said I'd make a good drink for her and I don't know what to do. I am thinking maybe like a Cosmo or something or a Margarita? I am pretty stocked or can get mostly anything so whatever the ingredients are does not matter. What would be something that is kind of unique but universally liked? Any recipes would be appreciated.

PS: I know that there is not any one drink that "every" girl of this age would like but... just kind of a generalization if you would.

Margarita is good...I would also plan on Rum based drinks...Mojito etc. Oh, and Hurricanes would be fun too!! .............All in moderation of course!!

Mojito or Cosmo would be classier but a mix drink w/ malibu rum is alawys popular or you could go for a kamakaze (Vodka/Lime/Triplesec i part each) we used to do those straight from the bottle in HS (not condoning this bad behavior) but they are very sugary... or the collegiest drink is the flaming dr pepper (beer/rum/amaretto... you can google for instructions) that one you get to light on fire.... but she may end up with her head in the toilet. Really depends on the girl is she looking for something sophisticated or a serious party drink

The girl that used to work for me liked Parrot Bay mixed with Lipton's Citrus Flavored Green Iced Tea.
