Drinks to order out that I can't make at home?

help! I'm stuck in a drink-ordering rut when I got out to eat.

Basically, I tend to order my 'standard' Grey Goose martini up w/ olives, and can never think of anything else to order. Occasionally an Old Fashioned, or Manhattan, or Mojito.
Once in awhile a restaurant will have a 'specialty' drink on their menu which is really good. Example: cucumber-infused vodka martini w/ ginger. or Sake-tini.

I like drinks that are not too sweet, or cream-based.

At home, I'm really good at making the martini, sidecar, margaritas, caipirhana, to exactly my liking. So I don't want to order these out, and I'm usually disappointed when I do.

so what other "semi-standards" should I try & add to my ordering vocabulary?
