Sour/bitter mixed alcoholic drink recommendations.

I'm looking for sour mixed drinks to enjoy.
I like my alcohol to taste like alcohol. I enjoy stouts, ales and lager and when I want something with a bit more kick, I enjoy (good, old, single malt) whisky.
However, I know veritably nothing about mixed drinks and want to expand my repertoire (and take advantage of more of the shiny bottles behind the bartender). The only mixed drinks I have enjoyed have been gin & tonic, vodka martinis and screwdrivers. The latter being just about borderline too 'sweet' for me (depending on the quality of the orange juice used). I can drink Fruitburst Whateveritas, but I don't really enjoy it.
So, hivemind, please help me find mixed beverages that satiate my desire for 'oomph' in drinks. I apologise for the vagueness of the question, as I don't really know what 'base' alcohol is good to use for what I desire (otherwise I would've used one of the online databases...)
I'll drink anything once or twice.
