Remember that most words ending in "o" or "e" in Spanish are masculine and use the article "un" and most words that end in "a" are feminine words and use "una" as the article. So if you want to say I would like an apple juice please, you say, "Me gustaria un jugo de manzana por favor" and if you want to say I would like a beer please, you say, "Me gustaria una cerveza por favor". Practice and you will soon get the hang of it - good luck.
