Forget the haircut, the clothes they’re wearing and the body language: you can tell everything you want to know about a person by the drink they order. So if you want a shortcut to how the evening’s going to turn out, look no further:
Dirty martini – I have low self-esteem that can only be appeased by sex with a stranger.
Vodka soda – I have an eating disorder and will be crying over Galliano by 9pm.
Smirnoff ice – I have fake ID but you can snog me before my dad picks me up at midnight. Or a 35 year old who wears denim with denim and has a yo-yo.
Cosmopolitan – I am ageing, lack imagination and have watched too much SATC.
Fishbowl of Chardonnay – I cry during sex.
Whiskey and Coke- I’m a 15 year old boy who’s going to puke. Or a 45 year old who still wears Metallica t-shirts.
Mojito – I’m a splash of imagination short of a personality.
Pear Cider – I’m desperately trying to hold onto that festival feeling.
Negroni – Yes I hate the taste of it, but how cool am I? Go on, like me – pleaassee?!
Grey Goose on ice - I’ve got chlamydia
Baileys on ice – I still live with my parents.
Sex on the beach – I’m a ditsy blonde virgin, and surely boys will think I’m great in the sack if they see me sipping this, right?
A Pint in a Cocktail Bar – I’m very uneasy about my sexuality, I like beer football and TITS.
Stella Artois - I hate you, you and you, I’ll f**king do you if you look at me, but I love my mum.
Tray of Tequila shots – It’s my intention to not be able to stand, talk, walk or remember anything tonight. Apologies in advance.
French Martini – I want to be an international spy but I don’t like violence.
Bloody Mary –There isn’t a time of day that I wouldn’t rather be drinking.
Rum Straight – I’m trying to look hardcore, (or they’re a pirate).
White Russian – I think I’m sophisticated enough to drink cocktails, but I’m only sophisticated enough to choose the sweet ones.
