What Your "Drink" Says About You on a Date

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


Appletini: You've left the kids with a sitter and you're ready to have fun!

Pimm's Cup: You're an Anglophile.

Old-Fashioned: Mad Men is your favorite show — you either want to be, or sleep with, Don Draper.

Margarita, on the rocks: You've decided to have a good time tonight.

Margarita, frozen: You're in Cabo.

PBR: You're drinking quickly on your way to a non-profit fundraiser, followed by a poetry reading in a former industrial warehouse.

Tequila Shots: You're either getting laid, or just getting through it.

Long Island Iced Tea: You have a drinking problem.

A beer, while at a cocktail bar: Overprotective of your manhood or unadventurous.

A cocktail, while at a dive bar: Insufferable.

Hard cider, eh?

My wife and I go out to party at least 2 times a week. We live in Seattle and unfortunately we have noticed that many places that serve cocktails are putting less alcohol in the drinks. Since both my wife and I used to tend bar, we are certain this is taking place. So if you see someone drinking a newcastle at a cocktail lounge, don't assume they are boring. It may be they just don't want to get ripped off.

I'm willing to bet whoever wrote this is not of legal drinking age.

tdm-35-icon.png

I drink water and water only. What does that say about me?

tdm-35-icon.png

You're cheap.

tdm-35-icon.png

You drink water at bar? Its says you're a boring, moronic, dufus and probably gay. Or you're a cop.

tdm-35-icon.png

That is what for I was gonna says

tdm-35-icon.png

and then directly under the comments there are several articles we can choose to read, by the same writer?...one is something like, "How to Pick Up Someone at a Coffee Shop" and another; "Foods to Avoid on a First Date". Wow-not only is the writing really horrendous but this has to be one of the most shallow-immature people. How did I get here? Won't happen again. hehehaha

tdm-35-icon.png

That was reallllyyyy stupid and a huge waste of time.

tdm-35-icon.png

I drink George Dickle with branch water on the rocks. What does that say?

tdm-35-icon.png

That You unfortunately enjoy weakened whiskey...
Try a double shot over crushed ice (not cubes),
remember to give it 3-5 minutes to chill as it will
become smoother & much more enjoyable!!!

Jameson with just a wee bit of water. You'll never go back.

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

Since a martini is made with gin, I don't see how this follows. Oh, you meant a "vodka martini", not a "martini". It's a different drink folks. Just because you use the same glass, vodka is not an ingredient in a martini.

tdm-35-icon.png

Is this an article or a Fucking Bud Light commercial? Stupid shit.

tdm-35-icon.png

If you're a guy, and you drink ANY drink through a straw....,YOU'RE GAY!!!!

tdm-35-icon.png

This is literally the least funny/relevant article I have ever seen in my life. Clearly the writer does not drink or have any knowledge about alcohol as a whole. I think I want to hang myself after reading this piece of garbage.

tdm-35-icon.png

A freshly made mojito is a nice summertime alternative. Ten Canes rum, of course.

tdm-35-icon.png

what does a pitcher of beer, shot and a mixed drink at the same time say?

tdm-35-icon.png

It says that you are well on your way to not feeling well the next morning! It will look very interesting coming back out your nose!

tdm-35-icon.png

It says you're just so cool! Wow look at how much you can drink! You're aweseome!

tdm-35-icon.png

Why the hate for the vodka gimlet? Ever try one? It's my favorite summertime drink. Very, very tasty and refreshing. Gee, I guess I better switch to something more trendy.

tdm-35-icon.png

coffee

tdm-35-icon.png

Who makes a Gimlet with Vodka? There's no flavor without the gin.

tdm-35-icon.png

Simple aticle, trying to impose generalities in a specific way.

First date - she orders alcohol, there will not be a second date. Had it up to here with boozers.

tdm-35-icon.png

Maybe your such an insufferable turd she has to drink to get through the date with you!

tdm-35-icon.png

Well aren't you imposing generalities on someone ordering alcohol on the first date.

tdm-35-icon.png

Sorry, the drops of scotch spilled on a napkin make better reading than this. Or the perhaps the spills from my flavoured vodka, or maybe my bourbon. Give me a break, seriously.

tdm-35-icon.png

I prefer dog piss to anything that bud makes. Is it really beer?

tdm-35-icon.png

Really? Bud Light is easy going? Why not drink tap water? That's pretty easy-going, too.

And apparently, the author's knowledge of cocktails was learned in college. And stopped there.

tdm-35-icon.png

The article was soso, the writer had space to fill, but it did provoke comments and some of the comments were funny and better written.

Some times you can stereotype people by what they drink. Some Martini drinkers are arrogant And some cheap beer drinkers are bubba with a gut at age 25

I will agree that most Long Island Tea Drinkers, that is a potent drink, are out to have a good time.

My drinks vodka very cold or tequila, usually straight. I don't like frozen drinks, or drinks with umbrellas or flowers in them.

White wine I drink and am female, but not sweet white wine, very dry, crisp, and tart. Red, if I am eating Italian or beef.

Being German American, you would think I would like beer. European. Asian, American, Canadian, Mexican Beer, you name it, can't stand it.

So trying to define a person by what they drink, some times it fits, and some times it does not. One thing is for sure, I know my vodkas and tequila's Don't know what that says about me.
