In 1984, the Rockets drafted center Hakeem Olajuwon, who would be paired with 7 feet 4 inches (2. 24 m) Ralph Sampson, forming one of the tallest front courts in the NBA. Nicknamed the "Twin Towers", they led the team to the 1986 NBA Finals—the second NBA Finals appearance in franchise history—where Houston was again defeated by the Boston Celtics. The Rockets continued to reach the playoffs throughout the 1980s, but failed to advance past the first round for several years following a second-round defeat to the Seattle SuperSonics in 1987. Rudy Tomjanovich took over as head coach midway through the 1991–92 season, ushering in the most successful period in franchise history. The Olajuwon-led Rockets went to the 1994 NBA Finals and won the franchise's first championship against Patrick Ewing and the New York Knicks. The following season, reinforced by another All-Star, Clyde Drexler, the Rockets repeated as champions with a four-game sweep of the Orlando Magic, who were led by a young Shaquille O'Neal and Penny Hardaway. Houston, which was seeded sixth in the Western Conference during the 1995 playoffs, became the lowest-seeded team in NBA history to win the title.

Cocktails: different types. Juice, soda, cream, and alcoholic beverage of any kind are common components that are used to make perfect cocktail. This drink usually includes ice and flavoring ingredients as well. Plastic sticks or straws and fresh fruit are used to decorate the drink. Any cocktail should consist of three or more different ingredients otherwise it’s not a cocktail. Exact origin of the drink is unsolved mystery. However its roots stretch back to the 19th century. Term “cocktail” was mentioned first in American magazine in 1806. Alcohol-free. Non-alcoholic cocktail is called mocktail and sometimes punch. Word “mock” means mimic, imitate or copy. So mocktail imitates and looks like cocktail but it’s always alcohol-free. Fruit juices, iced tea, herbs, nectar, cream, and soft drinks are used to make mocktails. Word “virgin” is often added to the front of mocktail name. For example Virgin Pina Colada doesn’t include rum but consists of the same ingredients as original drink. Mocktails are great to serve party guests who prefer non-alcoholic drinks. These alcohol-free beverages are good choice for pregnant women, children, recovering alcoholics, and those who don’t like taste of alcohol and still want to enjoy fanciful cocktail. Beer cocktails. They are also called beertails or shandies. This beer-based beverage may contain various soft drinks such as lemonade, fresh juices (lemon, orange, apple), sparkling water, and ginger ale. Beer cocktails may be light and sweet as well as heavy and rich. Balanced cocktail that can stand on its own is often basic element for the most of beertails. Perfect beertail should include beer that either complements cocktail flavors or contrasts with them. Weissen Sour, Michelada, and Belgian Sour are the most famous beertails in America. Weissen Sour is sunshine-bright cocktail that is made of white beer, bourbon, lemon juice, orange marmalade, and small piece of lemon for garnishing. Michelada is beer-based cocktail that includes lime juice, hot sauce, spices, and sometimes tomato juice. This drink is served over ice in glass with salted rim. Belgian Sour includes mix of ale, bourbon, orange, lemon, and ginger syrup. Rum Cocktails. Rum is sweet liquor that is popular basic element for mixed drinks.
