What Your Favorite Cocktail Says About You


One cannot approach a bartender without experiencing a frisson of terror. As a customer, you are about to place a drink order, and that drink order will lay you naked across the bar, metaphorically. As soon as the order leaves your mouth, the bartender will know all there is to know about you and will pass judgment accordingly.

That holds true for other patrons, as well. As you judge the party with the tray of B-52s, so are you being judged. Here’s what your favorite cocktail says about you.

      Okay, I do not like Manhattans, but nearly everyone I know who loves them can be described by this: “You like horses and Chanel No. 5 and think pantyhose are seriously underrated.”

      Also, with regard to the mojito (i.e. my favorite drink): OH GOD THIS IS SO TRUE ABOUT BEING CONCERNED. I am hoping 24 counts as early twenties because I feel so behind in life. Although — “You think you’re getting old, but that’s just because you keep hanging out with much younger people.” — I almost exclusively have older friends, I need more younger ones so I can feel worldly :(

      Also also, I love this post.

      What about Vodka Diets? Because that’s my favorite cocktail. Vodka all day erry day.

      Obviously I love mojitos, but only in the summer. What is the verdict on gin and tonic?

        You are an 18th century British sailor, or the closest thing we have in the modern world. You’re pretty brave. Once you find a dish you really like at a restaurant, it’s hard for you to forgo it to try something new the next time you’re there. You might not go around actively seeking out new experiences, but you rise to the occasion whenever they find you. You probably like British TV shows.

        This is absolutely correct, although I don’t really watch enough TV to have a strong preference. I did tape the PM’s Question Time Wednesday mornings in high school, though.

      Bloody Mary …?

      Manhattan: spot on. My other favorite drink is a shot of Hennessy.
      I’m a bit scared how much you know me. My family all works for Chanel and I was an equestrian until age 18. Do you hide under my bed and take notes?
