TT, I too am only an occasional and I know what you mean about some basic ingredients that seem to be included in many drinks. I live near the Mexican border and the same accusation exists about Mexican food - that it is all the same ingredients presented in a slightly different manner. A taco, a tostado, and a flauta all contain mostly the same ingredients but are served folded, flat, and rolled (respectively). However anyone who regularly eats Mexican food can easily tell the difference.

And while many drinks taste similar to me, I have no doubt that others can tell the subtle nuances between different rums and different ratios of mixers. There are also plenty of widely dissimilar Tiki drinks out there. No one would confuse a Mai Tai, a Pain Killer, and a Dark & Stormy
