🍸 Name Your Puppy After Popular Cocktails

If you like to shake things up then this is the list of alcohol dog names for you. We love the sound of the name “Mai Tai” for a Caribbean Potcake Dog – because we all dream of sipping colorful drinks with umbrellas whilst lying on a tropical beach with our four legged friend. If you’re looking for more traditional dog names, then you probably don’t want to call your dog “Fuzzy Navel” – that’s definitely a name for more adventurous dog owners!

🥃 Alcohol Dog Names Inspired by Scotch Whisky For Your New Dog

scotch whisky

Whisky (without the ‘e’) is actually Scotch, because it's only made in Scotland. Whiskey (with the ‘e’) can be made anywhere (although if it’s made in the US it’s often called bourbon) – Yes, liquor can be confusing but whether you’re aware of the subtle geographical nuances or not, you are sure to know that Scotch is a favorite drink enjoyed by many. There are some really great ideas here if whisky is your tipple of choice. We think “Angel” is the right name for a girl dog with a sweet personality and if you have a mischievous boy in your life, then “Scallywag” is the perfect name.
