I conducted an informal poll to see what your favorite drink says about you. The sampling was very small and the margin for error is very large. If you see your favorite drink lampooned, spare me the hate mail. I get enough already.
What Your Drink Says About You.
Vodka Martini – Sophisticated. You’re classy, old school or a James Bond wannabe. I’ve been known to drink these.
Cosmopolitan – Prissy, over ordered and passé. Favored by Manolo Blahnik wearing Candace Bushnell devotees who spend all their money on shoes but live in rathole apartments. Rapidly becoming an old lady drink.
Sidecar – The last time you got laid was 1932.
Chardonnay – You know what you like. Boring. Predictable. The Missionary Position of White Wine.
Pinot Grigio – You’re pretentious or don’t know what you like. You follow the herd. The Circle Jerk of White Wine
Beer – Blue collar, simple, and an old standby. (I think a girl wearing a t-shirt and jeans while drinking a good ‘ol Bud is very sexy.)
Chocolate Martini – You’re immature or have a sweet tooth. Good for masking the taste of Roofies.
Vodka on the Rocks – You want to get drunk as fast as possible.
Malibu Bay Breeze – A gay man’s drink. (According to Louis)
Sloe Gin Fizz – Same as above.
Gin neat – Only for mad dogs and Englishmen.
Sour Apple Martini – You have a sense of fun but overindulgence might cause dancing on tables and bad karaoke singing. (Beth?)
Negroni – Fluvio’s favorite drink so I can’t badmouth it. I like my job.
Campari and Soda – You’re a gourmand. A good aperitif. A bitter drink for bitter people.
Manhattan – Old fogey drink. Stuffy. Where did I put the bitters?
Sweet Vermouth on the Rocks – You’re so old that if you’re not already in the grave you soon will be.
Pinot Noir – You’ve seen Sideways. Nuff said.
Sex on the Beach – You’ve been to Club Hedonism haven’t you?
Sex up Against the Wall – You own shares in Club Hedonism don’t you?
Galliano –You’re a waterbed, lava lamp, reel to reel, gold chain wearing, wall to wall shag carpet loving, swinging 70’s disco fool.
Gimlets – You’re old fashioned and like to drink. Usually the provenance of classy cerebral babes.
Rob Roy – You’re an alcoholic.
Margarita – You’re fun, good in bed, and naughty with a sense of style. If you don’t have it with salt you’re a wimp.
Shirley Temple – What? Are you five years old? On the wagon? Get the fuck outta here.
Bloody Mary – You need an excuse to start drinking before lunch.
Gin and Tonic – You’re kinda boring but an excellent drink when it’s hot outside.
Mint Julep – You’re a hospitable Southern guy/gal. Good stuff. Rarely ordered.
Tequila – You’re not afraid of spending a little time in jail.
Champagne – You’re reserved, classy, or a stripper.
Vodka Red Bull – Party person, young, possible cokehead.
Southern Comfort –Where’d you put the Lynyrd Skynyrd eight tracks? I know I saw ‘em around here somewhere.
Mojito – You’re not afraid to try new things, have low frustration tolerance and are prone to wild rages.
Rum and Coke – You’ve been arrested for assault once or twice.
Whisky Sour – Have another one Grandma.
Alabama Slammer – You’ve read the “Have a Cocktail” placemat at the diner once too often.
Whisky, Single Malt Scotch, Bourbon – You’re a sexual athlete. Women want you and men want to be like you. You have class, talent, wit, and brains. Of course, this is what I drink.
If you differ with the above assessments or would like to add your own, well, that’s what the comments section’s for. Have fun.
