Choosing your new dog's name is the first official act you take as their owner and could set the tone of their personality and how people perceive them. No pressure. If you're the type of person who likes to have some fun when it comes to names, you can get really creative with your fur babies. Whether you're a fan of getting buzzed, a mixology enthusiast, or even if you don't touch anything remotely alcoholic, it can be fun to name your dog after a cocktail.
If you want to name your dog for your favorite mixed drink, or even just one that sounds cool, go for it. Not only can it make you smile every time you say their name ("Come here, Mojito!") but it's a great conversation starter at the dog park, in the elevator, or on the street. To put it in cocktail terms — it's a perfect ice-breaker. Sure, it's easy to give your dog a common name like Bailey, Max, Bella, or Lucy, but there are good odds there won't be too many Caipirinhas hanging out at your vet's. You can even use a cocktail that has special meaning, like one from your first date with your partner or a drink you had to celebrate a professional triumph. Have fun with it and when the dog is finally house-trained, you can toast them with their namesake drink.
