Every girl has that one drink. That drink that automatically ensures you’ll have a good time. That drink that turns her night from drab to fab, and that drink that she always tell guys to get her when they ask. But, is it possible for people to pick up on your personality simply based on your signature drink of choice? I’ve decoded 15 popular drinks and have concluded what they might say about you.

Vodka Chasers | Martini | Domestic Beer | Rum/Whiskey & Coke | Gin & Tonic
A “Blow Job” or “Orgasm” | Jager Bombs or Vodka Red Bull | Long Island Iced Tea
Grey Goose | Tequila Shots
You are most likely that girl that can eat and drink whatever she wants and not gain weight. Girl, I envy you. The margarita girl is the life of the party. She loves tequila yet, doesn’t want people to think she’s slutty for drinking it. Summer is your favorite season and you love how the strawberry margarita matches your pink outfit. You like things fruity, a bit on the wild side and can handle a brain freeze. Now, let’s hope you can handle your liquor or you might be upchucking that margarita in a few hours while crying on the bathroom floor that you “are never drinking again”.
2. Vodka Cranberry
Ah, the vodka cranberry girl. Everyone goes through a stage when they are a vodka cranberry girl. This type of girl is bubbly and fun. She is naive, sweet, and is often taken advantage of because of it. She is new to drinking, or just flat out likes the buzz of alcohol but hates the taste. Her sister always told her that vodka cranberry is a safe drink that will always equal a good time. They like to follow the crowd and keep up with the trends, but not too trendy. They may not have much money to afford something fancy, and since this drink is often a special at the local watering hole, they gravitate towards it. This is a popular college drink since the mixer for it can often be stolen from your dining hall. Vodka cranberry girls rarely stay vodka cranberry girls forever. It is a great starter drink that is dependable, and will lead you to explore other drinks.
You probably went somewhere tropical when you were younger (probably Mexico or the Caribbean) and had your hair put into those tiny little braids – and want to go back. You like things that are fresh, clean, and obviously minty. You freak the eff out if you get a crease in your freshly dry cleaned Calvin Klein dress, and wish that you could be granted an unlimited shopping spree at Tommy Hilfiger. You don’t care that mint is not in season in the winter, or that this drink is difficult and taxing to make. You know how to escape from the ordinary and be transferred to another world when you drink this drink. You are probably from a rich family and like the way Mojito sounds rolling off your tongue when you order it. You know what you want and you’re picky. You aren’t persuaded to order a simple drink just because of the long line behind you. You go, mojito girl!
4. White Wine
You are either a young high school student stealing whatever alcohol is easiest to steal from your liquor cabinet, or want to feel insanely classy. You don’t mess around with stains and you like consistency. No bartender can possibly screw up a glass of wine. It’s a very safe bet. You like how your favorite drink has options. You can pick a sweet wine, spicy wine, or a dry wine. Much like wine, your personality has many sides. You have a sweet side, wild side, and a bitchy side. You get offended when a bartender responds white or red after you order Sangria or Moscoto. Wine girls (especially when they started young) often stay wine girls for a long time.
5. Red Wine
You are confident, strong and dedicated. You’ve spilt your wine on yourself several times. You have given up wearing white around dinner time and had your gorgeous white couch covered in a deep red to accommodate for spillage. You have zero shame carrying a wine glass around the bar and feel classy and elegant. You don’t care if a bartender has to open a whole new bottle of wine for your glass. You think things get better with age, so you may be married with three children and a house in the suburbs, or 18 years old trying to look 21.
6. Vodka Chasers
You either just started college or want to be in college again. Perhaps you remember times when you drank vodka out of water bottles, and want to relive the old, care-free days. You want so badly to be a badass vodka drinker, yet, you are falling short. You order a shot of vodka and a shot of some sort of juice to wash the vodka away. Seriously, save yourself the embarrassment of taking that shot of juice and just go get yourself a mixed drink. You’re not in college anymore. Suck it up, you’re getting old, and order yourself a mixed drink or ditch the shot of juice. You are so close to being a vodka drinker yet, you are unable to handle it. You are forever stuck in the middle of sweet and sexy, funny and serious, and outgoing and shy. If you just started college, ditch the juice. You’ll get there.
Wow! Aren’t you fancy? You either love the taste of gin or vodka, are an alcoholic trying to function in society, or are seriously trying to be on Gossip Girl 2.0. You look very fancy drinking this drink. It will set you apart from the beer drinkers at the bar and even the wine drinkers! You don’t mind paying $10 for a drink and those little olives at the bottom serve as an awesome snack mid night. You want attention and are in a league of your own. People won’t approach you because they assume that you think you are too good for them or that they are inferior. (They may be right.) You have money but will probably end up lonely at the end of the night wondering why nobody is approaching you.
8. Domestic Beer
For real though, you are at a BAR not a picnic. Domestic beer girl is a football fan and is one of the guys. She doesn’t care about her appearance, looking bloated, or burping. She likes to play it safe and knows that beer will not get her too drunk. She is waiting for a guy to come up to her and say, “Hey look, you’re drinking Natty Ice too, we must be soul mates”, which is never going to happen. You are patriotic and probably drive either a Ford or a Chevy and are attracted to guys with guns and pickup trucks. Though beer is great, it has no place at a bar, especially if you are looking to take a guy home.
9. Rum/Whiskey and Coke
You are trying to disguise the taste of your alcohol, obviously. This was a drink that you always drank when you were younger, because it is so easy to quickly slip some rum or whiskey into that Coke at that family party where you weren’t old enough to drink yet. You might still be underage. Or, you just love this classic. Everyone loves a good rum and Coke. Or, you have no idea what you are doing, and it’s just simple. A rum and Coke is a classic drink that is universal. Order this drink at a bar and you will give the impression of being safe, not a thrill seeker, and overall easy going (unless you drink like 10).
10. Gin and Tonic
You are a no frills type of person. You are simple and no drama. You hate fruity drinks and despise those girls who run around on Thursday nights with those blue shots that literally taste like juice. You don’t mind sticking with a classic and respected drink. You’re comfortable with that, and with your life. Boys will approach you because you seem like a stress free type of person. You will probably get friend-zoned because you respect yourself and aren’t one to make impulsive decisions. You know what you want in life and are not distracted by prettier and more appealing alternatives. You are a dedicated and committed individual, with a plan that you will likely accomplish soon.
11. A “Blow Job” or “Orgasm”
If you can’t say your drink order without giggling or smirking, you are doing it wrong. You are so desperately looking for some action and waiting for a guy to ask you what you are drinking so you can sexually say, “A screaming orgasm and yes, I’d like another one”. Seriously, do you even know what’s in that drink or are you only drinking it because it has a name that makes you all hot and bothered? You also like the cool color that these drinks come in and hope he will notice how the ocean blue of your cocktail matches your eyes, and you just laughed because “cocktail” has the word cock in it. Very mature. Maybe I should check your ID twice.
12. Jager Bombs / Vodka Red Bull
OMG YOLO LET’S GET EFFED UP! You are one of those unpredictable, wild girls. You are an absolute wild card and people appreciate you because you are often the one that gets things started. You have a ton of energy and like to be bouncing off the walls; a blast in a glass. You don’t care about the possible repercussions of mixing alcohol and caffeine, and quite enjoy the buzz that the combination gives you. You probably work a lot of hours and need the caffeine to stay up past your 10:30 work night bed time. You tend to embarrass yourself and your friends from time to time, yet, you really don’t care. Everyone knows you are in the room the second you step in and remembers you because you did something crazy last week, like break a barstool at that club across the street.
13. Long Island Ice Tea
Really? You really want a long island ice tea? Okay, well, chances are you are either a one and done kind of girl, you hate the taste of alcohol, you spend your summers in the Hamptons, or you want to test your limits with that guy that just offered to buy you whatever drink you wanted. You know what you want and often get your way. If he brings you back a shot of Grey Goose instead, you will throw it in his face. You may be bossy, and are probably are used to ordering people around and having people follow you. You will likely become a boss or some sort of CEO. You don’t care that these drinks take forever to make or that there is enough alcohol in them for 5 people. You’re going to get fucked up tonight!
14. Grey Goose
Much like long island iced tea girl, you know what you want. You will not settle for any grade C vodka. And Smirnoff? Eww, no thanks! You either grew up wealthy or your friends were all wealthy, so you have expensive taste and know that not everyone can keep up with your lifestyle. You don’t care about paying $7 for a shot of vodka, as long as it goes down smooth and tastes divine. You probably are wearing a Michael Kors watch and a pair of designer sandals. You know your engagement ring will someday cost over $7,000 and your wedding dress will be Pnina Tornai custom designed. You get your own way often and aren’t afraid to put people in their place. You are a bit judgmental and people kind of hate you but love you at the same time.
15. Tequila Shots
This girl is the absolute life of the party, the epitome of a crazy party girl. She loves being the center of attention and adores anything that will take the edge off. She does not have just one drink. She drinks to get black out drunk and make some memories that she will probably forget the next morning. She will probably be going home with a stranger who is hotter than he was 20 minutes ago when she gave him a fake number. Boys will buy her drinks and think they have a chance with her, yet, she will probably just use them for the free shots. She is the girl that every guy in the bar wants to take home and only one will get to (two if they’re lucky). A true tequila shot girl knows how to handle her booze and can handle the morning after. A fake tequila shot girl will be upchucking in the bathroom ten minutes later. She does not need a sugary drink! She enjoys straight to the point alcohol. She’s a fire cracker, sassy, and knows how to have a good time. Often times, she is compensating for an insecurity she may have, drinking and going home with guys to distract herself from what is really bothering her… but having fun nonetheless. This is a bartender’s best friend. A quick and easy order that will bring more people into the bar.
The Bottom Line
Love what you love and drink what you desire. Don’t just change your signature drink based off an article you read about what it could be saying about your personality! This is a light hearted, fun analysis of what your signature drink may be saying about you. Some people drink tequilla shots just because they like the taste and some people drink domestic beer because it’s cheap and easy to get on tap at the bar. Have fun and drink what you want to drink. Most importantly, always remember to stay safe and know your limits.
