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?

Or...you might order a Long Island ice tea, scotch...neat, or anything else, because you like the taste. I order the iced teas on occasion and drink about 1/4 of it...just for the flavor.
Just because you order a high octane drink doesn't mean you have to finish it.

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

Hardly. The guy is drinking whiskey or brandy straight up.
A better choice is Manhattan for the Don Draper types... the girls are drinking the Old Fashioned.

tdm-35-icon.png

I've been watching a lot of Mad Men lately and Don Draper does order quite a few Old Fashioned...

Once more: preferring Stella isn't pretending to know about beer. It's having a sense of taste.

tdm-35-icon.png

Damn right, Stella is a very good beer. I have just returned from 12 years living in the Netherlands. The best beers are German and Chech, If I cant get one of those in a club, I will surely enjoy a Stella. The Belgiums also Make great beers and Stella is just one of them. It really is not a bad choice when better beers are not available. American Beers? Please, they have some nerve and arrogance calling American brews "Beer"

tdm-35-icon.png

Right, because Stella is a well crafted brew with a wonderful taste and not just another big corporate produced beer flavored water with tons of advertisement backing and nothing to show for it in the product. Every pretentious moron that wants to appear like they know good beer, when in fact they no nothing, orders a Stella. It looks pretty, it sounds pretty, and it's the thing to do...if you don't know any better.

tdm-35-icon.png

You really know nothing., Obviously you don't know much about beers. It is a very good beer. Especially when compared to what one calls "American Beer" Its not known for being the best of beers in Europe, but it certainly is a very good beer. I know lived in Europe for a very long time and know much about beers in Europe. Get an education before commenting, you will surely, at least, be commenting from experience.

Idiotic article. You can't pigeon hole people by their drink choice. People are not so simple. The globe should be ashamed to post something so Cosmo-like. Plus, red wine was not even mentioned. Guess that means it's the drink that can't go wrong.

"What does a drink say about a person"

Uh, my favorite drug is booze?

tdm-35-icon.png

What about a guy ordering a Cosmo?

tdm-35-icon.png

what's an Irish Coffee, in its various permutations, signify?

tdm-35-icon.png

btw a girl who orders a long island iced tea is looking for sex. (oops did i stereotype?) just happened this weekend. she got toasted, try to tell me she wanted a real "long term" relationship - and then proceed to have s_x for 2 hours. regardless to say, no callback. sorry. you put out first time, regardless of what you drink, you're not looking long term.

tdm-35-icon.png

"regardless to say, no callback. sorry. you put out first time, regardless of what you drink, you're not looking long term."
Hmmm......what does that say about you who took the sex and snobbishly posts that she was not looking long term and that is why 'no callback'..........as if you were!

You know it - what a dawg!

Back in the teen years when we wanted to bang your g.daughters we'd always bring the drug beer. It worked most of the time.

Can somebody help me with this security question. They want to know what 12 + 4 is?

tdm-35-icon.png

Dude....12 plus 4 is....I know it's out there somewhere. Sorry, I can't help you.
On the callback thing. That's precisely why I'd call her back. Damn, you never know when it might be late, you've struck out and she just might not be entertaining.
My Dad always said to always treat a whore like a lady and vice versa.

Did Anheiser Busch sponsor this article? Wow, total BS. Anyone who has ANY taste in beer would order Stella before ordering Bud Light. Beer drinkers with discerning tastes would order Fat Tire, Sierra Nevada, or some micro brewed beer, not some corporate so-called beer made from corn and chemicals. Bud light... Give me a break.

tdm-35-icon.png

I am a girl who likes a good stout Guiness. What does that say about me?

tdm-35-icon.png

you have a beer belly?

tdm-35-icon.png

Water (or soda, juice, etc.) = you actually want to remember your date. :P

tdm-35-icon.png

Anyone ever think this article might be... you know... humorous? Don't get so bent out of shape about someone poking fun at your drink choices. If you've got to defend it, then they've hit home about something.

tdm-35-icon.png

Finally. Someone with a sense of humor.
Good tongue in cheek article.
When my wife and I were dating she couldn't drink more than 1/2 a cocktail. And they were mixed drinks on the sweet side. She still doesn't drink very much. A little wine with dinner is about it. Now that was a cheap, money wise, date.

tdm-35-icon.png

this is obviously stupid, choice of drink should be based off one thing, what you want to drink. Any guy, or girl for that matter, who buys a drink based on what they think their date might think of that choice is beyond sad and unless you're skilled at deception, your lameness with be very evident

tdm-35-icon.png

If you hold your nose and just chug it it doesnt matter what it is, it all does the same thing, it gets me STONED!

tdm-35-icon.png

Welp, this was a waste of time. This is the first and last time that I visit "The Daily Meal." By the way, how can I get paid for contributing absolutely nothing to anyone?

tdm-35-icon.png

Filthy gin martini. Guess I'm a real hot mess...I just thought I had an affinity for olives.

tdm-35-icon.png

me too.....w/blue cheese

tdm-35-icon.png

I drink a Tokyo Tea (yes, I am female) and as it is = to a Long Island I cannot agree with you here. I do not have a drinking problem unless I drank them in mass quantity. Let's just say I like getting somewhere fast...not like that.

tdm-35-icon.png

Order Stella because it's familiar? WTF are you talking about. I drink Stella because it's great and is actually beer.

tdm-35-icon.png

Life is too short for Lite Beer. Good choice.
