Just a simple little connect wall ... I doubt the overall theme is all that hidden, but hopefully making the four groups of four will be entertaining!

Hint:

Don't go pissing the night away thinking about the alcoholic properties ... this is about the names themselves.

BACARDI BELLINI CIDER COGNAC
DAIQUIRI GUINNESS LAGER MANHATTAN
PATRON ROSE SAKE SMIRNOFF
TEQUILA TUBA VODKA WHISKY

I think the wall should be resolved as follows:

Group 1: Drinks that appear in the song Tubthumping (1997) by Chumbawumba
...He drinks a WHISKY drink, he drinks a VODKA drink, he drinks a LAGER drink, he drinks a CIDER drink...
(This group is suggested by the hint, in fact - 'pissing the night away' is another lyric from the song...)

Group 2: Drinks named after a geographical location
COGNAC - named after a commune in France;
MANHATTAN - named after the borough of New York City;
TEQUILA - named after a Mexican town;
DAIQUIRI - named after a village in Cuba.

Group 3: Drinks named after a person
SMIRNOFF - Pyotr Arsenievich Smirnov;
GUINNESS - Arthur Guinness;
BACARDI - Don Facundo Bacardí Masó;
BELLINI - named due to its colour resembling that of a toga in a painting by Giovanni Bellini.

Group 4: Drinks which should be spelled with an accented letter (to differentiate them from real words in English)
ROSE (Rosé), TUBA (Tubâ), SAKE (Saké), PATRON (Patrón).
