What Your "Drink" Says About You on a Date
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...

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.

1. Sweet! Based on that, I'm hot and my wife is looking for a good time
No wonder our dates always end with us going home in a rush to hit the sheets... :)

4. How about a Manhattan
with a little bit of cherry juice?

That's what my Grandmother and my Great Aunt drank....must mean that whoever drinks it is a strong, willful, loving, go-getter. :-)

Now the 2nd generation is shaking those babies up. Great memories....

25. I once saw a site that categorized you based on your fav drink..
..it said "Manhattan drinkers are charming, witty people who are getting laid in 1/3rd the quality and quantity of everyone else at the bar."

Sadly, this is true, at least for me. I love Manhattans and I'm ugly as sin.

5. The following is a true story. I was on a first date with a guy....
he was trying to order a drink from the waitress..

He was asking for a drink with vodka, amaretto, coffee and Irish cream liqueurs,
finally the waitress just asked him "You mean a "Screaming Orgasm"?"

He turned beet red and admitted that was what he wanted.
He said he was very embarrassed.

There was a VERY uncomfortable silence until she turned to me and
asked what I would like...

"Make mine a multiple." I said.



We didn't end up staying together, because I don't actually LIKE
sweet drinks.

10. Scotch & Soda:
1. You're incredibly sophisticated and worldly.
2. Your momma's rich and your daddy's good lookin'.
3. Your favorite group is The Kingston Trio.

Dave Guard

Scotch and soda, mud in your eye. Baby, do I feel high, oh, me, oh, my. Do I feel high.
Dry martini, jigger of gin. Oh, what a spell you've got me in, oh, my. Do I feel high.

People won't believe me. They'll think that I'm just braggin'. But I could feel the way I do and still be on the wagon.
All I need is one of your smiles. Sunshine of your eyes, oh, me, oh, my. Do I feel high.

People won't believe me. They'll think that I'm just braggin'. But I could feel the way I do and still be on the wagon.
All I need is one of your smiles. Sunshine of your eyes, oh, me, oh, my. Do I feel higher than a kite can fly.
Give me lovin', baby. I feel high.

13. I don't drink alcohol.
I have a glass of champagne on New Year's Eve.

And I broke out a couple of bottles of the GOOD STUFF (Piper-Heidsieck) the night our Fearless Leader was elected in 2008.

So make it an iced tea since I'm a southern gal, and that's what we drink year-round, pretty much.

:toast: :bounce: :toast:

14. I lived here on the cusp of the south in MD for 2 years...
before I consistently remembered that the words "Iced Tea" must be preceded or followed by "unsweet!" if I don't want to end up in sugar shock.

17. Sweet tea?...
love it! Not from the south..but dad is.. he loves his sweet tea..so do I.

I'm not a big drinker either. I've recently started having a glass of wine maybe once a week.

My husband can count the number of drinks he's had on one hand. Hates the stuff. My husband is an iced tea drinker too...year round.

16. ps I ordered that on a first date. the waitress and date both looked at me like I had two heads
all downhill from there

even after I told the waitress it was from a movie, and I didn't really want such a heinous combo

that said, I have some tonic I need to use up, and a bottle of Bombay is whispering my name as I type

22. I was surprised by that, too.
I'm also a little surprised Guinness stout wasn't on the list. Or, brandy.

After that, I walk.
