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?

To get rid of a hangover, drink two cups of water. Force yourself to drink water. Alchohol dehydrates the system, which is why people end up with hangovers. Drinking those two cups will restore the water in the body and no hangover! I've done this for years and have still yet to wake up with a hangover even after a night of heavy drinking. When I mean heavy drinking, I mean the kind of drinking where you forget how much drinks and pass out somewhere! ROFLOL! Thankfully I've always had friends around me to take care of me (since they know how I drink.)


Actually, the best remedy for a hangover, not to drink that much. But in reality, Pedialite really works. I got really pissed one evening drinking hi-octane & was soo sick. After my stomach settled down, I drank almost a qt. of pedialite, no flavor. By the time I got to work, I was straight arrow, & ready to start all over again, which I didn't. Just saying .. pedialite.


country bar on a friday night pbr and beer nuts while listening to creedence on the jukebox and watching somebody gettin punched out.. Poetry yeah right.




They must pay be the word...not the content


PBR: I'm sitting on the tailgate of my truck sweatng after cutting the grass and just before I take the shrubbery clippings to the burn pit at the county landfill. Like I have for the last 40 years. Poetry????


I love a good Jack and Coke- what does that say about me? Ew, and I'd never go for a guy drinking a martini. I'd assume he was uptight and pretentious


a Guy who drinks Martinis is not uptight nor pretentious.

First, Martinis have Clean Alcohols. meaning they do NOT have Oil residues that give you a hangover.
the also do not Get you Drunk and stupid for the same comparable amount of alcohol Vs. Beer.
On a Date you don't want the other person with "Beer Breath" (Barf Breath) speaking into your face. while dancing close or romantically close. NO Romance there. You just want this person to move away.
I don't like Chicks with beer breath talking to me into my face. Yuk!
Martinis ARE Classy, mellow drinks, sip and Kick back, talk, converse, etc.
UPTIGHT? What R U Talking about. Obviously U R in the dark about everything.
Jack & coke?? Oh I get it. U must be a Billiard table Bar fly, hillbilly type of chick.


Billiard table? Around here we call them pool tables, sissy boy.


dumb article. and there's nothing impressive about a guy drinking a martini.


Your wrong! If he drinks it out of a fancy cup it means hes a cultured druggie.


What a stupid article! I don't read anything into what someone orders to drink on a date unless that person drinks so much so as to become intoxicated.


then you back up out of vomiting projectile range right?


"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.

????? Is Budweiser an advertiser? Bud Light = your taste buds never graduated from freshman year of college, lololol. (sorry to be mean-spirited, but it's the truth)


Yes I agree, only us experienced drunks can appreciate a truly fine brew.


I have to agree. If you're at a bar and the beer that you crave most is a bud light it's clear you don't know good beer.


making fun of light, American, pilsner = yawn


And how fast will they hit the exit if I order a Pepsi or Dr Pepper on the date?


A Bloody Mary is what you order the morning after the date. :)


And what would drinking a Bloody Mary say about you?


Heaven forbid you don't drink on a date.

When Bud began marketing "light" beer, it was like Volkswagen announcing that they would start making "small" cars. Still true.
