What Your "Drink" Says About You on a Date

Are you an easy going Bud Light drinker or trying to impress with a Martini?


What you order on a date can definitely send a signal, whether or not it's one you're conscious of. Sure, the list below is mainly full of generalizations, but there's some truth to every stereotype...

Click here for the What Your "Drink" Says About You on a Date Slideshow.

 

Martini: If you're a guy, you're trying to impress (and it's probably working). If you're a girl drinking a dirty martini, you're a hot mess: the dirtier, the messier, the hotter.

Vodka on the Rocks: Too self-conscious to actually order a martini.

White Russian: Obsessed with The Big Lebowski, and probably The Daily Show. Or, you just like to drink dessert.

Bud Light: You're easy going, laid back, and at home at a sports bar. If you're a girl, you know how to hang with the guys.

Stella Artois: You have no particular knowledge or affinity towards beer so you just order "Stella" cause it's familiar.

Lillet/Campari/Aperol: You're twee, and possibly like to throw around words like "mixology."

Vodka Cranberry: When in doubt, you stick to what you drank in college.

White wine: You're definitely a woman. You're possibly a little uptight.

Prosecco: You're often a little uptight, but tonight you're looking to party.

Whiskey, neat: You're hot. Regardless of gender.

Jäger: Secretly wishing you were hanging out with your buddies.

Vodka Gimlet: You're a huge dork, but you hope sort of in a cool way?

Ordinarily, I would agree with you, bud. My grandpa was a trucker who drank PBR and smoked Luckies. But now a bunch of poseurs have taken over the label-- it's a new hipster poseur drink for the next 15 minutes.

PBR is a biker beer not some yuppie crap

And a blue Hawian means?

It probably means you are too drunk to realize what the hell you are drinking now

tdm-35-icon.png

Simply gibberish...

tdm-35-icon.png

How about red wine? Does the type of wine matter? The public needs to know....

tdm-35-icon.png

Maybe the person who orders the Campari is um, Italian? Because that's what people drink in Italy. Duh!

Why is Bud Light the ONLY beer choice presented here? I would *never* order a Bud Light in a bar, or anywhere else for that matter, and I tend not to order fru-fru drinks either (sugar and alcohol do not mix well in my body, leading to hangovers, etc.) I'd be most likely to order a decent beer (into which category Bud LIght does not, alas, fall), but there is no option for that here.

tdm-35-icon.png

I was wondering the same thing myself. Bud Light means you don't give a turd about what you're drinking. I'm a woman, and I would never order a beer with "Light" in the name. Sam Adams, Blue Moon, and anything German. You can keep your Bud Light!

So are you supposed to be ashamed if you are a recovering alcoholic and order a non alcoholic drink? Does the author foresee you being laughed out of the bar?

tdm-35-icon.png

I prefer gatorade and am not alchaolic. It doesnt assume you are in a bar, just on a date somewhere. They didn't have time to enumerate every single beveage, which is unfortunate.

tdm-35-icon.png

Moronic, pointless article.
When you're on a date, drink what you like...not what some doofus writer tells you is "cool". Your personality tells someone else about you...not your drink, what you order for dinner, your car, or anything else.
Time to grow up.

i just went on a date the other night with a guy who ordered a martini, and i was most definitely NOT impressed. first off, we were at a dive bar. you don't order a vodka martini at a dive bar. save that for a swanky restaurant. second, when the bartender asked him if he wanted any particular vodka, he said no, which says to me that he never drinks martinis, knows nothing about vodka, and only ordered it to impress me. and i bet it tasted like s**t. nah, it didn't work.

tdm-35-icon.png

This whole dumb thread turned into a holier-than-thou drink-a-thon.

And now, I shall join in for a bit...

They didn't mention craft beers on this judgmental, but somewhat correct, stereotypical list; I suppose it's because craft beer enthusiasts are genius'...?

=D

Lol i love how it says if you order stella u know nothing about beer but if you order a bud light ur basically the shit lmfao no if you drink bud light you watch the jersey shore and touch yourself.

Most of this is plain bull. Repetitive and blasé.

A persons choice of drink should be selected according to the image they would like to portray.

For example if a dude wants to look like a sissy then he chooses something with an umbrella.

By the same token if a chic wants to project a Butch type of image then she'll drink just about anything yellow straight out of the can.

If the same chic wants to appear to be a classy druggie then she'll choose a "fine wine" and ingest it from a fancy glass.

If they want to promote an air of a cultured druggie then they may extend there pinky finger outwards, knock glasses and say something clever or philosophical or more often something completely stupid and unintelligble.

Is a Manhatten (Bourbon and Red Vermouth) wit a dash a Bitters called an "Old-Fashioned"?

tdm-35-icon.png

Old Fashioned is:

2 oz blended whiskey
1 sugar cube
1 dash bitters
1 slice lemon
1 cherry
1 slice orange

tdm-35-icon.png

old fashioned what? its called booze bro.

I can't believe all o the negativity from the comments, can't be real drinkers, pick your poison and enjoy, the past page was accurate, been drinkin with a ton of different folks from all over the world. I like drinking on a date with the chick who left the kids at home and I bought her that appletini. The fools who react negatively to this are the same asshole's who ignore all the chicks in the club and want to fight my friends and me. I love to embarrass them. Right before I kick their ass I let everyone around know how gay they are for trying to fight me instead of trying to get with one of the many chicks around.

tdm-35-icon.png

Get counseling dude. Picking up bar ho's dont make you man. Making violent threats only confirms what many of us already know about your intoxicant of choice.

tdm-35-icon.png

Anybody who drinks anything "Neat" is an alcoholic. Stay away from them.

tdm-35-icon.png

Anyone who drinks anything with ice in it has a mangina and likes watered down liqour.

tdm-35-icon.png

Makers Mark, straight up. Don't worry about the impression, watch the show. Scotch is a mans' drink, it takes a man to drink that pretender.

tdm-35-icon.png

Watch what show? I don't get it, but I drink makers with 1 or 2 cubes, sometimes neat. I am a woman.

tdm-35-icon.png

Is the person that wrote this even old enough to drink? Maybe you should have consulted your daddy first.

tdm-35-icon.png

Why all the negative comments? I bartended for years and this strikes me as a remarkably accurate picture. The Appletini and PBR bits especially.

tdm-35-icon.png

Waste of space.

tdm-35-icon.png

Maybe if I took the little umbrella out of my coconut mango frappe girls will like me more.
