Top 28 Male Alcohol Names For Cats

The following is the list of best male cat names inspired by alcohol:

🐾 Tom Collins

The Tom Collins is a well known cocktail composed of lemon juice, simple syrup, club soda, and gin. Its name has a refined sound, so your cat will sound sophisticated.

Also, the name Tom is always cool for a cat, so this is an ideal name for a tom-cat..

🐾 Jack Daniels

Jack Daniels is the classic Tennessee whiskey. This is a very cool name for a light brown cat.

This would also be a cool name for a cat with long whiskers, since the founder of this whiskey distillery had a huge mustache.

🐾 Johnnie Walker

Johnnie Walker is a type of Scotch whiskey, and calling your cat Johnnie sounds cool to me.

Naming your cat after this drink can have an inspirational meaning as well, since the catchphrase of Johnnie Walker is “Keep Walking”. No matter how hard it gets in life, always keep walking, and pet your cat. lol

🐾 Captain Morgan

A flavored spiced rum, this is a cat’s name that makes him sound like he might be a pirate.


Drinking an occasional whiskey lowers the risk of heart disease and so does petting your cat. Imagine petting a cat named Whiskey? You can’t get better than that!

Whiskey is also a pretty cool cat name, because of the cat’s whiskers. It sounds as though you’re sweet talking about their whiskers.

🐾 Jameson

This is an Irish whiskey. Jameson is a tasty, decent quality whiskey.

A lot of people wonder how Jameson tastes so good, I bet they’ll wonder about your cat’s name as well.

If perhaps you liked the aforementioned names Jack, Johhnie or Julep, but are still indecisive, you can check out these other interesting cat names that start with the letter J.

🐾 Hendrick

Hendrick’s Gin is a brand of gin, made in Scotland and slightly infused with cucumbers and roses.

I can imagine a gray cat proudly bearing this name.

🐾 Gordon

Gordon’s Gin is a dry gin from London. It is high quality with a delicate flavor, and is often enjoyed mixed with tonic.

Gordon is kind of a nerdy pet name, but very cute.

🐾 Jagermeister

An interesting drink blended with various plants, roots, and flowers; 56 to be exact! All of them are chosen carefully to make this strong liqueur.

It is said that this drink has a special character, so it’s a great name for a cat with a big personality. To shorten the name, you may refer to your cat as Jago, which sounds cool to me.

🐾 Merlot

Merlot is a type of grape which is used for making a dark red wine. It is a much-loved, medium-dry wine that works with many types of food.

The name Merlot sounds mysterious and interesting, a little like ‘Merlin’. This name would best suit a black male cat.

🐾 Mojito

Mojito is one of my favorite drinks. It is a cocktail made out of white rum, brown sugar, mint, lime, and sparkling water. It has a little vitamin C, so it is actually good for immunity.

Mojito is a great name for a striped cat, perhaps with brown and white stripes.

🐾 Amaretto

Amaretto is a drink which goes well with many other drinks. It is a sweet Italian liqueur, enjoyed on its own or in mixture with other drinks.
This name is best for a sociable cat which gets along well with other cats.

I see it on a cat which can get a bit bitter, so it would be fabulous for a moody cat.

🐾 Cognac

Cognac is a type of brandy, a special type which originates from France.

I see a brown, or ginger cat with this name. A ginger cat named Cognac would be adorable.

Cosmo is a name derived from the Cosmopolitan cocktail. The Cosmopolitan is usually seen as a girly drink, but once you try it you will see why it is so popular.

This name suits a British shorthair cat, especially a chubby one.

🐾 Gimlet

A cocktail made of gin and lime juice, the gimlet is an easy and tasty recipe.

The name is way cooler than the recipe and it reminds me a little of the word gremlin. It is one of the coolest alcohol names for cats.

🐾 Guinness

Guinness is a dark stout, known for its complex taste and made in Ireland’s capital city, Dublin.

A dark brown cat would be worthy of the name, actually the name Guinness would be worthy of a dark brown cat.

🐾 Julep

A mint Julep is a sweet, refreshing drink composed of bourbon, sugar, water, crushed ice, and fresh mint. It’s a truly interesting combo.

Julep sounds as if your cat is some sorcerer’s little helper.

🐾 Liqueur

Liqueur is a name in general, for any drink composed of spirits and additional flavors. Sweet, bitter, and strong all at once.

You can refer to your cat Liqueur or Licky, this name is suitable for any cat with a funny character.

🐾 Moscato

A wine made out of white grapes, known for its sweet flavor and a taste of orange or peach.

It also has the word cat in the name, making Moscato a really great name for a cat.

🐾 Pinot

Pinot Noir is a light, dry wine. It is one of the most popular red wines. People drink it on its own, or mixed in some cocktails.

Pinot is a sophisticated cat, a cat who knows their own mind, and doesn’t care about anyone else’s.

🐾 Prosecco

Prosecco is a sparkling wine. A cat named Prosecco will surely make you smile, and it is a beautiful and rare name.

Schnapps is a super cat name, it sounds extremely cute and unique.

🐾 Vermouth

Vermouth is a fortified wine, usually flavored with herbs and spices. It is a unique name, indeed.

If you have a Maine coon cat, this name will definitely go with their striking look.

A cat named Gin will surely win the hearts of everyone who visits you.

🐾 Martini

A refined cocktail made out of vermouth and gin, a martini is usually decorated with an olive in the glass, lemon peel, or even a slice of onion.
If you call your cat Martini, you can shorten it to get Marty, either way it’s a very cool cat name.

Campari as a cat name is an excellent choice; it sounds cool, fun, and unique.

The name Mai Tai is the best choice for a siamese cat.
